We offer three accurate reproduction WWII jackets

The Battle of Britain jacket, patterned from an early-war original flying jacket, and a 1941 model with horizontal seam tapes on the front and back panels, and on the sleeves. We also make a multi-panel model jacket, made from more pieces of sheepskin and with more seam tapes, like many late-war jackets.

 

Our jackets have been called the most authentic reproduction WWII RAF flying jackets available. Many of the people who have made this distinction are devoted collectors of original wartime flying jackets. Our aim is to make jackets which could be mistaken for box-fresh original wartime flying jackets, just like those issued to RAF airmen in the 1940s.

It is so much better looking than any other repros I have seen.
The fleece is spot on with character and depth.

Test jacket #1 after one year!

The first reproduction Irvin test jacket that I made is now one year old, so I thought I’d take some comparison photos of the jacket next to an original wartime Irvin. The test jacket is starting to show lots of character, and is looking more and more like an original 1940s jacket.
