    Pre-owned Real McCoy's Type D-1 jacket in size Small. Unfortunately I have to let this beauty go as I do not get enough wear out of it in the Australia climate.

    Very small signs of rubbing on the elbows, but otherwise in excellent condition.

    Selling for $1700 USD $1500 USD (price reduced)

    • Sheepskin, Combination tanned, Polycrylic lacquer finish
    • Vegetable tanned horsehide trimmings
    • 1940s bell-shaped Talon Zippers
    • Made in Japan
    Rough measurements are as follows:
    Size Small
    Length - 61cm
    Shoulders - 46cm
    Pit to Pit - 51cm

    The U.S Army D-1 mechanic jacket was issued during the same period as the B-6 flight jacket. It was designed for grounds crew often working in harsh weather conditions, however, because of it's relatively simple design, was soon adopted by pilots who would wear it over their A-2 flight jackets for layering warmth whilst still retaining ease of movement.

    I don't normally go in for these styles and this would be entirely too small for me but good God in Heaven...that's a beautiful piece of outerwear. GLWS.
