Original WWII Japanese Flight Suit Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified
Original WWII Japanese Flight Suit Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. A fur-lined, medium brown cotton one-piece flight suit, as introduced in 1937. It has a zippered vertical front closure, with a single button and button-holed tab to its top and four button French fly to the right of the main zipper. Its fur-lined, lay-down collar has two buttons to its left underside through each of which are fed triple button-holed tabs which mate with corresponding dual buttons under the right collar. The fur has mostly come off from age. Another button may also be seen positioned further back on the left underside of the collar. All of the buttons to the angled French fly and to the zig-zag stitched underside of the fur-lined collar are of 2cm diameter olive drab bakelite. A large patch pocket is to each breast, each with a vertical zipper under a French fly next to the front closure. A 7.5cm tall tunnel loop for a belt runs along the reverse of the waist, ending above each hip, with leather reinforcing to the left hip. Zippered vertical slashes are to each hip, allowing access to the interior. To the front of both thighs are fur-lined, pleated patch pockets whose top openings are diagonally angled. The cuffs of each sleeve and to the base of each leg have zipper closures with wind flaps. All of the zipper closures work, and all have short “pulls,” in the same material as the suit, looped through their tabs. The zipper tab to the front closure is stamped. Heating cord has been removed, which is common. The chest measures approximately 40″. Very nice example. Some mothing. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided.
