OD Nylon B-15 Black Label Marked Size 40 AF-33 (652) 5279? This is a very rugged 50's Korean War? Nylon B-15 flight bomber jacket. By the signs of wear, it has seen lots of action!
It does have two small pulls/holes on the shoulder where my finger points. The cuff webbing is greatly tattered on both cuffs. The waist webbing only has a few small holes and is not Swiss cheese. The base slide and pull tab of the Crown zipper is gone.
Again, I point to this in the picture. Picture 7 shows a small snag by the pocket. The mouton collar is real and shows wear and collar crease.
The good: This is a solid jacket priced to sell. To consider: This jacket is not prefect and will need zipper work to close. Property Contract Label (early example black and gold).
I cannot make out the label to date it nor identify the Sportswear company. I have provided what I think are the correct numbers (that I can read). I did make out that it is marked size 40. Perfect for special outings or casual dress. Size marked 40 USA Made!
Measurements taken from seams and laid flat. Go by the measurements to assure a fit. Shoulder to shoulder seam- 18. Armpit to armpit seam- 21.
From center back of collar to bottom- 29. The pictures show best the condition.
