I am wondering about this jacket - is this a quite unknown Flightjacket or just custom made ...

Since not erverybody like Flap pockets - and not everybody see the need to wear only historical accuracy jackets -
probably an idea to create a different
"Flightjacket"?
What's your opinions / comments?

It looks like a fairly common design from the forties and fifties with piping around the pockets. Montgomery made a lot like it as did others. I've got one similar to that but with a shearling lining. Aero had a similar one on their sale page too and it may still be there.

A civilian leisurewear jacket, not really a flight jacket.

from the lining- if original- it looks like a late 40s Hercules from Sears. You can get them on eBay for $150-$300 depending on how "rare" the seller thinks it is.

Yes, it's a common jacket available from the department stores of the post war.
Now, a closer look at that 101 patch may hold more value than the jacket if it's an original.
