    Leather and suede golf jackets were very common though. Look at the Aero Royale which is styled on pre war golf jackets.

    Thank you very much!

    We don't know if the materials to make the jackets were covered in separate contracts (as were the A-2 contracts with American companies) or included in the Australian contract, so ~2,500 jackets is probably the highest possible number of V505 jackets produced and maybe much less.
