AERO LEATHER TYPE M422a CUSTOM JACKET
Aero's US Navy Type M422a goatskin flight jacket is very authentic; just like the ones supplied to the legendary American Volunteer Group better known as "The Flying Tigers"! Like the orginals, these are made from tough, thick, vegetable tanned Dark Brown Indian Goatskin with an unmistakable hard wearing fine pebble finish.
Made exactly to the original specifications with two button down pockets, the left containing a hidden pen pocket, bi-swing back, underarm gussets, genuine US made Talon zip and a choice of Rust or Dark Brown Mouton collar with throat closure under the collar for extra wind protection. An original style compass pocket with stud fastening inside the left hand facing is fitted as standard and the original US Navy single thickness, two way weave, pure wool jersey is used for cuffs and waistband.
This jacket has been produced for a tall size 44, with deep wine rayon satin lining and Burmese 'Blood Chit' stitched to the inside centre back. USN under collar markings have been added in white.
As with all of our Aero Leather Jackets, the Type M422a can be custom ordered to your specifications. Arrange an appointment for a consultation or contact us to discuss the options. We can adjust the jacket for your height and tweak the pattern slightly to suit your build in some cases. In store we have a full set of sample swatches for available leather, lining and knit options.
