The shearling lined B-3 sheepskin bomber jacket was designed and first manufactured in the 1940s to help pilots endure the extreme cold experienced in the cockpit. This is a vintage Front Line shearling jacket using the same original B-3 styling.
This is a heavy duty thick sheepskin jacket approx 2.3kg in weight, with a soft cream coloured shearling sheepskin pile fleece, guaranteed to help keep you warm.
Used and in good vintage condition with signs of wear and abrasion throughout. This vintage B3 has a great rugged appearance. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our 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.
SIZE: L on the internal size label and this is quite generous and 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 note this has thick sheepskin internally so you need to allow room for movement (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

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:
