    Women's leather jackets

    Another cheap jacket. Hard to find pics of women wearing high-end leather jackets in classic styles, not that I've made much effort I admit.

    US Navy & US Marine Corp Boat Cloaks, and US Army Capes

    USN boat cloak owned by Eugene Davis, who became a naval aviatior in 1930. The uniform coats in the image are interesting since they each show different ranks, presumably as Davis was promoted over the years.

    Women's leather jackets

    This is definitely the explanation, from what little I've been able to intuit from the women I've known. Also, women on average usually prefer new stuff over old stuff (obviously there are a bunch of women who are the total opposite).

    USAF N-3B parka

    Indeed... it's in really good condition to have a missing tag. I had an original (Albert Turner, mid-50s) that was heavily banged up, nylon colour fade, fur gone, and the tag was in great condition. So who knows? Maybe this one is a Buzz and someone took off the tag to try to flog it as...

    US Navy & US Marine Corp Boat Cloaks, and US Army Capes

    Here's an interesting cape. This one is obviously a copy of the US Army capes, with all the appropriate details, but it's made from a blue-grey wool. The tag dates is 1940 and was sourced from the Culver Military Academy. It's in mint condition, suggesting it never got much use. I'm guessing it...

    Here's a colour photo of FDR meeting with the Saudi king on the USS Quincy in Feb 1945 (from wikipedia). Colour reproduction on these old photos maybe not be fully accurate but this shows the dark blue boat cloak with black velvet collar. The black & white photo doesn't show the cloak well but...

    US Air Force Capes And now, the final type of US military cloak... the USAF cape, for officers and warrant officers. The only information I have been able to find on these is the illustration and photo below (note descriptive text at the bottom of the illustration). They appear to be a dead...

    US Navy & US Marine Corp Boat Cloaks, and US Army Capes

    US Army Capes Did you know that the US Army has capes, too? They do, and they’re still officially allowed (and they’re called “capes,” not “boat cloaks”). The description below is from the 2017 Army uniform regulations. On the surface, the US Army capes resemble the USMC boat cloaks including...
