Stories of the Jacket:
This entry was posted on January 29, 2013.
Never out of style, never out of fashion - the Cockpit USA crafted US Navy Issue G-1 is undoubtedly a timeless classic. Made from 100% goatskin, manufactured according to the current military specified pattern and modelled on the G-1 design, which Cockpit USA currently supplies to the Navy and Coast Guard units, this jacket is authentic in every aspect. Featuring a bi-swing back for comfort and ease of movement, top entry front flap pockets, an interior chest pocket, a full frontal zipper with a USN seal stamped wind flap, underarm grommets for ventilation, nylon lining along with knit cuffs and waistband - this piece ticks all the boxes for historic credibility! However, unlike the current government specified synthetic acrylic collar, Cockpit USA has added a genuine silky lambswool shearling mouton collar like that of the WW11 era jackets for a more luxurious finish. As this jacket is sized according to military specifications, ordering one size larger is recommended for a looser fit or your regular size for a true to size fit. Available in regular and long sizes. Proudly made in the USA. Grab yours here!
