Vietnam era G-1 leather flight jacket

To compare with one made about 20 years before this, see this post.

This vintage leather G-1 flight jacket dates from the Vietnam war era. It feels like it may be one of the cowhide ones as opposed to the usual goat. It has a bi-swing back, and knit cuffs and waistband. The zipper is missing the puller, and is separating from the leather in some places- so it needs to be replaced. The leather has all been freshly cleaned and conditioned, however, it still has a mildew smell from decades of storage which I have been unable to remove, so keep that in mind.

Chest: 20″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″
Shoulder to end of knit: 24″
