Vintage 70s Vietnam USN A-2 Deck Jacket Cold Weather Permeable US Navy S

£195.00 GBP

  • The A-2 deck jacket is an updated version of the N-1 deck jacket, which was developed and introduced by the US Navy in the early 1940s as a durable, warm and functional jacket for seamen working on vessels and ships. This updated version now called the A-2 was first introduced in the 1960s with a dark olive drab to enable camouflaging of USN personnel both at sea and on landing operations. 


    This is a vintage Vietnam era US Navy A-2 deck jacket from 1972 with a General brass front zipper - an iconic American naval jacket. Manufactured by Vanderbilt Shirt Co, Inc.


    Used and in very good vintage condition considering it is almost 50 years old with general signs of use. There is bobbling to the lining and the left (as worn) inner rib cuff has a split approx 1.5cm on the fold. A previous owner has written his name on the back neck label. Freshly laundered and ready for its new owner.


    All my 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.
