    Hi

    My sister would like to get a B3 or B6 jacket. Unfortunately, Eastman and Aero don't offer such jackets for ladies. I see that Cockpit USA and Schott make some, but neither of them are 100% authentic. Can anyone suggest makers on the Eastman and Aero calibre who also make a b3 or b6 for women?
    Thanks a lot

    I know of no one that makes them specificially for women,
    but the WASPs in WWII wore men's A-2s, B-3s etc.
    So, join the club, and buy one!

    Aero seems to make them for women now. A while ago I bought for my girlfriend a blue label, test jacket that’s not historically accurate but in a woman’s pattern. To be historically accurate, you’ll have to wear the men’s, just give Aero your measurements and tell them “I’m a woman”. They should be able to make one for you that fits well in the arms & body length.
