Gents,

It is not a surprise that getting NOS examples from Vietnam era is getting harder and harder, and this NOS G-1 Flying Jacket made by the iconic Irvin B. Foster Sptswear Co. is not the exception. What is makes is more attractive is the fact that comes from the scarce B series, one of the rarest of the spec 7823. This example is from the contract DSA-1-435-C-62, which dates fiscal year, 1962.

The goatskin leather is superb and supple. All parts are genuine to the jacket. Mouton collar is immaculate and shows the original dark chocolate shade, no fading whatsoever. Knits are pristine, which is extremely rare after these years. Blackened Conmar zipper is mint and works perfectly.

This is exactly how a jacket would have looked in 1962, right after being issued.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Regards,
Jorge
