    Most F-14B or F-14D Squadrons would not have worn CWU-36/P Flight Jackets dated later than 2000, Mfg by Propper International or dated 1997, Mfg by Creative Apparel, Inc. 3 Fighter Squadrons, VF-32 Swordsmen, VF-31 Felix, and VF-213 Black Lions, could have worn CWU-36/P Flight Jackets dated 2005, Mfg by Valley Apparel, LLC. After 2005-2006 All US Navy Fighter Squadrons would be flying F/A-18E or F/A-18F Super Hornets. The Squadron Patches would have a F/A-18 Hornet VFA prefix instead of the F-14 Tomcat VF prefix.

    I have a US Navy CWU-36/P, 1991 Creative Apparel Assoc., a US Navy CWU-36/P, 1997 Creative Apparel Assoc. both with Nametag Velcro only and a US Airforce CWU-36/P, 2005 Valley Apparel, LLC., with the Air Combat Command Velcro on right chest, Nametag Velcro on left chest and Squadron Patch Velcro on both shoulders. I am 6’2” 188 lbs. and the 1990’s CWU-36/P Jackets’ Nomex material seems thicker, the Sage Green is duller in color. the knit cuffs and knit waistband are thicker and tighter, and they are trimmer, fit me better. If you are heavier build, I would buy a 2005 Propper Industries, Inc. or a 2005 or 2010 Valley Apparel, LLC., with a looser fit. Plus, the knit waistband is not as tight fitting, more comfortable for a heavier build person. (Photo is my USAF 58th Fighter Squadron “Gorillas”, CWU-36/P Flight Jacket, 2005 Valley Apparel, LLC.)

    I actually built a model of Gulf Spirit back in the late 80s. Had forgotten all about it until I just saw the pic.

    I am 6’2”, 188 lbs. and I prefer the trimmer fit and tighter knit waistband of the Creative Apparel Assoc. (1991, 1995 & 1997)
    If you are stocky and have a larger waist I would get a Propper International, Inc. (2000) or Alpha Industries (2000) in Sage Green OR get an Ashland Sales & Service (2005) in Desert Tan.
    The Valley Apparel (2005 & 2010) is a little more trimmer fitting than the Propper International (2000) or
    Alpha Industries, Inc. (2000).

    I wear a 44 in a G-1 Goatskin Flight Jacket. The CWU-36/P Summer Flight Jacket in size 46-48 (XL) fits like a G-1 in 44 to me with a little more room in the shoulders. A CWU-36/P Summer Flight Jacket in size 42-44 (L) fits like a G-1 in 42. It is tight in the shoulders and the sleeves are too short for me.
