Hi,
Yes many made for Lockheed. Pace were the same as Bowlers Shirt & Uniform, quality is down on those made earlier by Bowlers and no where near the quality of Port Echo, Land MFG, Kings Point and Frauhauf jackets.

All the best

Thank you so much! Just to dig into this a little, you say many, but my understanding is these are pretty rare items? do you have an idea of production numbers? And do you know the approx age? Pace seems relatively hard to find info on, the only other bits I've seen (a flight suit from close encounters of the this kind, and another of these blue jackets from testing the S3 Viking) suggest 1970-75, but I'm really not sure here!

Buzz did a Lockheed jacket in those colours and similar materials, though the design was closer to the L-2 with no upper zipper pockets. I had one but it just didn't suit me for whatever reason.
