You are now admiring my size 44 Werber Sportswear 7823 (AER) G-1 jacket which is now being offered here to make way for some new additions to my personal jacket collection. This remarkable jacket remains 100% all original as it came from the factory. Besides being all original this jacket has been worn infrequently since leaving the factory in 1951. The jacket's medium to heavy weight goat hide on this jacket remains unbroken in from the factory. Likewise the jacket as a whole exhibits little or now wear.
As far as I can tell the only repairs that have ever been made to this jacket has been to darn the few moth nips present. This jacket comes from a smoke free household.
Slightly large for my frame and because of that rarely if ever worn by me since obtaining it some 12 years ago. There has been some fading to the lining but on par for it's era. The mouton exhibits little if any wear and has faded to a golden brown color.
This jacket comes with the most amazing small toothed Canadian Talon zipper. Completely original to this particular contract. A personal favorite zipper assembly among all of the USN jackets I have in countered to date.
As with all of the Werber jackets I've owned, this zip assembly functions flawlessly and has zero wear. Factory marked as a size 44 this jacket is the absolute most generously proportioned Werber Sportswear that I have encountered to date. The jacket's dimensions are as follows. Pits - 23 3/4" to 24".
Sleeve length 26 (when measured straight down the sleeve). Please feel free contact me with any questions. The item "WERBER SPORTSWEAR 7823 (AER) G-1 KOREAN WAR USN BOMBER LEATHER FLIGHT JACKET" is in sale since Monday, February 8, 2021.
