USAC A-1 Capeskin Flying Jacket.

Made by Willis & Geiger. N.Y. in capeskin leather, as per the originals, with quality cotton knits, and eight button frontal closure, chestnut coloured leather outer shell, with no issues, and 100% brown cotton lining, again with no issues, two front pockets, with button closure.
Jacket is in a 42" chest size, sleeve length 23" excluding the knits, bottom of collar to bottom edge of jacket, at the rear, 23" excluding waistband.
The knits do have a couple of small repairs, which can be seen in the photo's and are not really a cause for concern. absolutely stunning jacket.

The type A-1 Flight Jacket was standardized on November 27th 1927, being the predecessor of the now-famous type A-2 Flight Jacket. Synonymous with early aviation heroes, such as: Jimmy Doolittle, Ira Eaker and Carl Spaatz, it was the very first of the windcheater-type flying jackets outfitted with knitted waist and cuffs, and a design that was to set the basic outline for flying jacket styling to this day.

Capeskin is, basically, sheepskin - the same leather that was used to make the B-3 and B-6 Flight Jackets - the only real difference between capeskin and sheepskin is that Cape is a particular breed derived from Africa and noted for its fine quality and smooth texture, making it perfect for hair-off leather garments. But as a reproduction flying jacket wearer of today, please do not be put off by the notion that capeskin is inherently less durable than, say, horsehide. Capeskin is perfectly acceptable for the kind of daily use the average person would plan to give their jacket. label reads.
