Standardised on July 22nd 1943, the B-10 was the first in a new generation of flight jackets that were to supersede those made of sheepskin.
Made from a 100% fine cotton twill for the shell, they are lined with Alpaca pile which has incredible insulating qualities.
Although various cloth weaves and specs can be found on originals, the most typical was the fine-weave polished twill. This was peculiar only to the B-10, and never used on the later B-15s – we have custom-made this exact cloth, because we knew you'd appreciate it.
Don't leave it too late, these will be gone as fast as hot coffee & doughnuts after a heavy mission!
Available in sizes 36 – 50.
