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 80s US Navy Reworked A-2 Deck Jacket. It has been reworked by Darned Fine Studio in Ouseburn, Newcastle. It features a mixture of canvas and cotton patch repairs as well as an original M-1951 patch pocket added to the chest and sashiko stitch detail patches. Made in the USA and re-worked in the UK.

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.
