Vintage Cooper A-2 Brown Leather Flight Bomber Jacket USA Made Talon Zip L / XL
Cooper Sportswear Mfg has a long tradition of making superbly functional and distinctive jackets in the finest quality leather. They have also been supplying the US military since 1917, their leather flight jackets having been worn by thousands of pilots and ground crew.
The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is an American military flying jacket originally invented and developed for and closely associated with World War II U.S. Army Air Force pilots, navigators and bombardiers.
This is a premium - MADE IN USA - Cooper A-2 flying jacket, sherpa lined with a faux fur collar, and complete with a TALON front zipper which dates this jacket to approximately the 1970s / 80s.
Used and in good worn vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout. Pilling/ bobbling throughout the ribs. Please see all pictures.
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.
SIZE: No size label and this fits like L / XL (UK Sizing) with a 50in full external chest and the overall fit - but it depends how loose you like to wear. Please also note this jacket has quite a long body and arms (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

- TALON metal front zip

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.
