This is a pair of vintage original USAF F-18 Flight Trousers from 1962 intended to be worn with thewith theMA-1 Flight Jacket thatwas issued in the US Airforce in 50's. The jet-age was in full swing and as new types of air planes were created new requirements for pilot performance, safety and comfort also arose.
These pants are vintage originals produced in 1962 and the condition is just amazing considering their age! They have an original U.S. Air Force stencil on the left thigh and all the Conmar zippers are original and in perfect condition. The wool cuffs at the leg openings are also in perfect condition. The pants have a discoloration next to the zipper fly (see picture) and at the lower part of the right leg so they have a couple of small white stains which seem to be washable.
