RAF Coastal Command Irvin Flying Jacket
A very clean example of the increasingly rare hooded jacket with so many having had the high visibility yellow hood cut away post war to facilitate motor cycle use. This jacket has original zips fitted; the most zip is an early specification Dot, while the sleeve zips are AM Lightning. Inside the leather hanger is in place, although there is no sign of a label having ever been fitted. The leather panels are all in good shape with just one small repair patch to the rear of the left armpit but this has been very neatly applied. Minor wear to waist and cuff fur, whilst the belt is good with all the orignal eyelets in place. Having no label, we have estimated the size to be a good fit on a 38-40" chest. This would display well with item 6109, the thermally insulated trousers we have also listed today.
