Made following the 1938 Irvin Airchute Co. pattern for the Royal Air Force, this jacket was the hero of the Battle of Britain. Worn over London skies by English fighter pilots flying Spitfire and
Hurricane fighters in air battles against Nazi forces, this bomber
jacket provided the warmth and freedom of movement needed during combat.
As worn, the leatherized sheepskin panels will distress to a suede finish, which will provide that battle worn look over time.
