The B3 Sheepskin jacket was introduced in 1943 intended to be a protective flight jacket worn in cold zones. It's design was heavily inspired by the British Irvin flight jackets that was brought into service a few years earlier. This jacket remained in service for the next decade and through the years it went through some design changes to make it keep up with the needs.
The vintage jackets are sought after by collectors today and the B-3 jacket is perhaps one of the most iconic flight jackets ever made.
This jacket is secondhand but in great condition. It was made by the famous replica brand Real McCoys when they still had production in New Zealand. Real McCoys are known for making some of the best leather jackets in modern days. The jacket is made of sheepskin with trims of horsehide. Notable signs of wear is just the scratches on the horsehide leather that protects the sleeves and if you ask us this kind of wear only makes this jacket look better and it sure is a plus that you wont be needing to do all the braking in for yourself.
