    FS Werber Sportswear 7823(AER) G1 Jacket sz 44

    Up for grabs is a 1952 Werber Sportswear Inc. USN G-1 flight jacket in a size 44. This is a rare contract (only one for Werber), and features a number of exclusive details like the black painted Canadian Talon zipper, wide windflap and longer half-belt.

    This jacket is in very good shape: the lining shows very little wear, the labels are perfect, the collar is thick (very small bald spot next to right zipper, see pic) and nicely aged, the goatskin is thick and grainy, buttons are all original and tightly sewn, and the "USN" stencil is very visible. The knits are showing their age, as pictured, but still have life left in them; they should be salvageable with some darning. I'd definitely keep this jacket (awesome contract) if not for the fact that it was too big for me...

    Measurements are:
    Chest (front pit-to-pit): 23.5"
    Shoulders: 20"
    Sleeves (top of shoulder to end of knit cuff): 27"
    Length (bottom of collar to bottom of knit waist): 26"

    $450 USD plus shipping+insurance (INTL: $60 USPS Express; CONUS: $20 USPS Priority). PayPal only, pls.

    Thx for looking
    (I'd also consider a trade for a 40s-50s d-pocket, sz 42 )
