The leather Fighter Pilot's jacket is a M-422A type of flight jacket. There are no Quartermaster tags with date and size information. I do not know what size this jacket is. It is probably a small size.
Military likes to make soldiers exercise to be physically fit. Most Military clothing tends to be small sizes.
I show some reference book information about this WW2 era type of jacket. The reference book is not included for sale.Only the Second World War to Korean War era Navy Fighter Pilot's jacket is offered for sale. It is old and in Used Condition, with wear damage from use. There is very minor damage to the knitted cuffs and other parts of the jacket. It doesn't have as many moth holes as other jackets I have seen. Mostly the knitted wool parts have dirt stains. The leather is old and dried out. The leather of the jacket seems less flexible, due to being dried out. There is sun fading, dirt stains, scratches, paint loss, and oxidation to the metal parts. This is for sale "As Is", as an old relic collectable only. It is not for sale as wearable clothing, or as a usable item.
It is an old relic collectable. I don't care what size it is at all. I do not know how to do measurements, so don't bother asking for measurements.
Several people have sent me harassing messages about this jacket. They tell me that this is not a WW2 era jacket. That WW2 era jackets use buttons on the pockets instead of snaps. Maybe it is a latter Korean War era jacket. Maybe it is also something custom made for an Officer.I have seen other uniforms that Officers had custom tailor made to fit them. I know it is not a latter 1960s Vietnam War era jacket. The Vietnam War era jackets have black fur collars, and the older jackets have brown fur collars. Many Military items also got made by many different manufacturers, and there was variation in construction of items between manufacturers. I showed photos from a reference book that had information about this type of item.
For Legal reasons, the items in this listing are stated as "Used Condition". What is a "Used Condition" item? It is an item that is in "Poor Terrible Condition".
They are better condition than "Dug Relic Condition" items. Items are no longer like how they were the day they were first manufactured.Items have been used by someone Decades ago in another Century. Items will have defects and damage from having been used.
The older something is, the worse the condition will be. Wool items will have Moth holes. Expect Moth damage to old wool items.
Expect clothing to have dirt stains, frayed cuffs and collars. Expect there to be Mildew and Mold damage stains. Expect buttons to be broken or missing. Expect zippers to be broken and non functional.Expect size tags to be missing or damaged. Expect leather items to be dried out and cracked.
Hats will be crushed and bent out of shape. Do not expect clothing to fit you, it is not your size. Expect oxidation and rust on the metal parts. Expect items to be faded from having been exposed to sun light. Expect metal items to have dents, scratches, and paint loss.
Expect items to have microscopic fractures when looked at under a microscope. Expect Electronic items to no longer work or be functional. These items are old and things slowly get destroyed by time. Please do not expect something in "New Condition", or "Good Condition".
These items are in "Used Condition", and are Relics from another Century. The vintage items I list for sale are not wearable clothing, or usable items. These items are old and damaged from use. The item was rough weighed in an open box. I have mailed items in the past to: Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Malta, Hungry, Belgium, Taiwan, etc.The local Post Office gives those boxes out to use. They have lost items I have mailed. It takes between 3 to 5 days for funds to transfer to my bank account. I'm trying to be 100% up front and honest. I mostly only leave other people feedback after they leave me feedback. Chances are, if you don't leave me any feedback I'll probably not leave you any either. I try to be 100% Honest and show photos and describe items the best I can. Items tend to be old, used, and as is. Feel free to ask me a question.
If I see a size marking on an old Quartermaster Tag, I will try to show a photo of it. If I say that I do not know the size than please do not waste both of our time by asking about the size of an old militaria collectable. I also tend to have items packaged away to try and keep moths from eating them. I only dig them out if they sell and need to be mailed.Please do not ask me to take more photos, because I probably won't take any more photos of things I have already stored away.
