The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is an American military flight 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 vintage Saddlery A-2 sherpa lined bomber jacket, made with a heavy duty leather, complete with Ideal zipper, which helps date this to circa 1970s. Made in the USA.


Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general wear, abrasion, marks and creasing throughout. There is some pilling/ bobbling to the ribs. The left upper arm has had a patch repair approx 3cm in length. Not quite perfect but a great jacket with bags of character.


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.


Colour: Dark Brown


SIZE: 46 and this fits like a boxy L (UK Sizing) with a generous 50in full external chest and the overall fit - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).


Fabric: 100% Leather. The jacket weighs approx 2.1kg

- Ideal heavy duty aluminium front zip fastening

- 2 lower patch pockets with snap flap entry and further side entry pockets

- Rib cuffs and hem

- Fully lined with faux fur sherpa

- Faux fur fixed collar

- Snap fasten shoulder epaulettes

- Fabric back neck hanger loop


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 an item that fits you well.
