I bought this jacket from a Militaria Auction back in the late 80s.

It appears to be a cutdown & modified (by USN) version of early flight suit which was popular among USN pilots between WW1 & WW2 era.

That was a time when flight jacket was still an oddball…..flight suit was a major thing to wear when they fly.

I still keep this jacket for unknown reason…..probably because I feel really different unlike anything I own.  ( Takeshi )
