Made by the same factory that produced these between 1939 and 1945, this was actually made post-war, around 1955. Development of protective flight uniforms began during WW1, and continued into WW2. What developed were a 1-piece flight suit (2 for winter 1 for summer), which in 1936 developed into an electrically heated flight suit. This suit consisted of a one-piece jacket/pant combination with separate gloves and socks.
The flight suits contained built-in insulated heating elements which connected directly to the aircraft's power supply. The early version was intended for cold weather flight, and was worn over the standard uniform. In July 1940, new regulations determined a 2-piece flight suit was to be manufactured. The 2-piece suit consisted of a separate jacket and pants, and was commonly referred to as the channel pant.Manufactured in blue/grey cotton/rayon, with a fur lining, this jacket is in VERY NICE condition for its age! Though it does show some very slight marks and wear, it still has vibrant colors throughout! The snaps are of Koh-i Noor manufacture, as are the zippers. Some wear and corrosion on some of the zippers... But it does not detract.
The interior lining is made of fur and is 100% intact with no tears or damage. Dates between 1950 and 1955.Almost IDENTICAL to the WW2 produced variant, it would make for a SUPERB display. This could also be used for parts to restore an original WW2 German pair. Overall EXCELLENT used condition, it would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
