Rare find, mens vintage United States Air Force flight jacket from the mid to late 1950s by Rolen Sportswear. Heavy nylon fabric in sage green color with wool & rayon satin liner and wool knit cuffs and waistband. Sturdy brass metal Talon brand zipper at front, please note this is a well done replacement by a previous owner and it still has an original Conmar brand metal zipper at sleeve. Roomy fit that hits at waist, shorter than some modern mens jackets so please note all measurements to ensure you get the fit you are looking for. This jacket has a ton of wear left but does look to have been worn quite a bit, please see all issues listed below. It presents nicely and is a really amazing piece of history, overall in great condition and ready to wear! Issues: USAF rondell at left sleeve is faded out, this is common for these jackets and hard to avoid. The metal zipper at sleeve is currently stuck closed – I do not feel comfortable forcing it but I think with care it can open. There is wear to knit collar and heavy wear to knit cuffs, the waistband is in good condition. Liner has light wear to inside back of collar. There are some pulls and light stains to the outside of jacket, please study all pictures. It has not been dry cleaned or spot cleaned, as we aim to keep it as original as possible. No smells or major stains / dirtiness – it is ready to wear as is. S I Z E. Tag size – mens vintage US Large. Chest – measures 24.5 flat. Shoulder – 19 seam to seam at back. Waist – measured flat, stretches from 18.5″ to 20″. Length – approximately 21″ at back / 23.5″ at front.
