This is a vintage 60s US Air Force Vietnam Era Type CWU-1/P Flying Coverall, with an abundance of pockets for all your kit, and amazing detail throughout, including a stencil on the back. Made in the USA. The back neck label dates this to the 1960s Vietnam Era.
Used and in very good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and some light marks. The right (as worn) shoulder seam has approx 1cm of stitching that has come away but the seam is still sound. Freshly steamed 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.

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.
