Originating from the U.S. Army Air Force leather suppliers union in New York in the 1930s, AVIREX officially registered its brand trademark in 1975. AVIREX designs and produces flight jackets, strictly adhering to the original jacket designs World War II pilots wore. The name AVIREX comes from two latin words: avis - volatile, aviation and rex - king, this term was chosen to indicate the high quality level of materials and the craftsmanship of the production.
This is a vintage B-15 leather flight jacket by Avirex with a great worn in look. This jacket also has a removable quilted liner.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout. There is discolouration to the back left shoulder area (as worn), a stitch repair to the front right cuff, and a 5cm horizontal hole in the large back neck label of the liner. A badge has previously been added to the back central hem.
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.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up (if applicable) on a flat surface:
A - CHEST - armpit to armpit (double for full chest): 24.5in (62cm)

D - LENGTH - at the centre back from the base of the collar to the hem: 25in (63.5cm)
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.
