Vintage Vietnam Era USN G-1 Brown Leather Flight Bomber Jacket Scovill Zip S / M
The G-1 Military Flight Jacket was originally called the M-422A and introduced by the U.S. Navy in the 1930s. In 1943, this jacket was named by the Navy and the Army Air Forces as the ANJ-3. It officially became the G1 in 1947. The G-1 as compared to the A-2 leather flight jacket has a fur lined collar, Bi-Swing back & button down flap pockets on the front.
This jacket was manufactured by Star Sportswear Mfg and the back neck label dates this to the 1970s.
Used and nicely broken in with bags of character. The jacket has general heavy signs of use and abrasion throughout, with some paint marks to the left upper arm an internally near the pocket. The hem rib is shot and full of holes and it looks like the cuff ribs have been replaced. If you are looking for an authentic vintage G-1 then this is the one for you and still a totally wearable piece. 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: 42 but this fits like S / M (UK Sizing) with a 44in full external chest and the overall fit/ quite short arm length - 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).

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:
A - CHEST - armpit to armpit (double for full chest): 22in (56cm)
B - SLEEVE - shoulder seam to cuff end: 22in (56cm)
C - SHOULDER - distance between shoulder seams straight across at the back: 19in (48cm)
D - LENGTH - at the centre back from the base of the collar to the hem: 24.5in (62cm)
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.
