WW2 German & British Flight Jackets
British Irvin Flight Jacket / Coat
We are always interested in buying British Irvin jackets. We are also always buying related gear and equipment that British pilots would have used during World War 2.
British Irving Jacket
From the mid 1930’s and throughout World War 2 British pilots had one choice of leather jacket, the Irving. The Royal Air Force had these made by a number of different makers. Examples from before 1941 were made with one piece of leather rather than multiple pieces stitched together.
German Luftwaffe Pilots Jackets Unlike other countries during World War 2, the Germany government did not have a specific type or contract for a pilots jacket. While they did have general guidelines for jackets, there was not one style issued. There were however a number of makers offering jackets that did fit the general requirements, which was a short jacket in either brown or black leather. While confirming if a jacket was used by a military pilot is sometimes difficult, these are still jackets we purchase.
