Materiali

La pelle di pecora, utilizzata nelle giacche da aviazione, offre resistenza e comfort, essendo storicamente scelta per la sua capacità di isolare dal freddo estremo in alta quota. Questo materiale non solo proteggeva i pionieri dell'aviazione, ma garantiva anche flessibilità e libertà di movimento, senza l'aggiunta di pesanti imbottiture, rendendolo un alleato essenziale per i piloti di frontiera che affrontavano le sfide delle prime esplorazioni aeree.

History of G1 PaTCH LEATHER JACKET

No one’s exactly sure when it was standardized; its predecessor, however, was most likely the type 440 jacket. Unlike the G1, the 440 did not have the distinctive mouton collar. During World War II, the U.S. Navy in the Pacific refused to allow pilots to decorate their G1 jackets. In the tropics, they reasoned, pilots wouldn’t need to wear their jackets outside of the cockpit. After the war, the Navy restricted painted decorations on the jackets and allowed only official patches. Ironically, this decree resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of patches on the pilot’s jackets. Today, the Navy only allows one patch per jacket.

The G1 jacket was introduced in the late 1930s and remained in continuous use until 1978. In 1981, thanks to the efforts by Secretary of the Navy John Lehman, the G1 was reinstated and made available again by 1983. Made in a very dark brown goatskin leather, the jacket has a mouton collar, a nickel plated zipper in front, and two patched pockets with flaps closed by buttons, with a pen slot in the left pocket. Waistband and cuffs are in 100% wool (waistband bi- directional). The back is bi-swing plated, with armpit gusset, side seams. The inside is in rayon satin.
