Vintage 70s Vietnam US Navy USN A-2 Deck Jacket Cold Weather Permeable Green LRegular price £225.00 GBP
The A-2 deck jacket is an updated version of the N-1 deck jacket, which was developed and introduced by the US Navy in the early 1940s as a durable, warm and functional jacket for seamen working on vessels and ships. This updated version now called the A-2 was first introduced in the 1960s with a dark olive drab to enable camouflaging of USN personnel both at sea and on landing operations.
This is a vintage US Navy A-2 deck jacket from the 1970s Vietnam era (the label has faded but it looks to be dated 1970) with a Serval brass front zipper and DECK 40 rear stencil - an iconic American naval jacket. Made by Vanderbilt Shirt Co, in the USA.
Used and in good overall vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration with some tiny white paint marks to the arms. Internally there is some bobbing to the lining around the hem area. Freshly laundered and ready for its new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, 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.
