    RAF / FAA Irvin flying jacket - hooded

    Item details

    Thermally Insulated Flying Suit, Jacket.  Size 3 (Ht. 5'7" - 5'8", Ch. 36 - 38", Wt. 36 - 37").  Physically measures approximately 41” so should be suitable for around a 37/38” chest.  This example is of four-panel front and rear construction (see photographs).  The leather is generally in very good overall condition retaining much of the original chromed finish & flexibility.  There is some general scuffing and it feels a bit dry.  This could no doubt be improved with some leather dressing.   Most of the leather appears to be quite robust but there are some seam splits near the hood/neck seam area (see photographs).   Fitted with its original yellow painted hood.  Very good dense fur lining.  Both cuffs and waist have a good amount of fur remaining.   The belt is rather dry/stiff and needs a little restitching.  The jacket retains the original 'N' marked Air Ministry sleeve zips with leather puller tabs but they are currently closed and will need careful attention to free them.  The main zip is a replacement YKK.  With chain hanger and faded label. The jacket would benefit from a little work but overall it's a good example of the hooded pattern.  Stock code J22998.
