Vintage 1970 US Navy G-1 Brill Bros Vietnam Leather Flying Bomber Jacket L / XL
The G-1 Military Flight Jacket was originally called the M-422A and introduced by the U.S. Navy in the 1930s. In 1943, this jacket was named by the Navy and the Army Air Forces as the ANJ-3. It officially became the G1 in 1947.
This is a vintage leather - Made in the USA - Brill Bros G-1 flying jacket, fully lined with a heavy duty Talon brass front zipper and bi-swing back. The label dates this jacket to 1970.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout, in particular to the arms and front pocket areas. 50 years old and nicely broken in, with many years of wear still left in the tank.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
