Why does B-6 Sheepskin jacket have no wind flap?

Almost all classic flight jackets, such as A-2, G1/M422, B-3, B-10, B-15 and D-1 offer inside or outside wind flap, but only B-6 jacket hasn't it, it's so strange.
I can imagine, if someone riding a motobike in winter with B-6, the cold wind will through the Zipper tape and come inside of the jacket and make the Body not that warm, what's the reason for such design?

It was never designed as a motorcycle jacket ;)

Personally i like it like that.

And let’s be honest, the A-2 windflap is only good with a wind coming from your left....
