Named Pilot grouping with MA-1 and Flight Suit

Recently picked up this grouping of Captain (later Major) Henry A. Borfitz. I bought the grouping from the man's son along with some of his own Air Force flight bags. The MA-1 is a size Large, but the label is pretty washed out. Unfortunately, the pocket bags are blown out and the zipper missing teeth and the keeper. I am looking to replace the zipper and fix the pocket bags. Any tips for where to find the right zipper would be appreciated.

I believe Borfitz served in the 68th Air Refueling Squadron as per his bag. You can also see his portrait from the 1943 yearbook of the Childress Army Air Field.

Nice grouping. The K-2B flight suit is especially nice, those earlier ones with the leg map clip and USAF markings being less common.
