The B3 sheepskin bomber aviation jacket is one of the most iconic and stylish masculine jackets of all time. Army issue for pilots in freezing cold fighter planes in the second world war, they've been a mainstay ever since for their great style and extreme warmth. In the 1956 movie Bus Stop, the main star Don Murray wears this exact style and it's amazing how cool and timeless it is. These jackets are incredibly expensive to buy new and the vintage ones have way more character and are of the highest quality on the market today. We have sold hundreds of this style and have never had an unsatisfied customer. In fact, we have had so many who've told us they've never had a warmer jacket than this. This piece was Made in the UK, we guess by the label, in the 1980's. It is made from sheepskin with the leather on the outer, and the fur on the inside and trims. It has a buckle closures around the neckline , adjustable buckles at the sides for width, 2 pockets and a sturdy zip. The jacket is in good condition, with some light wear and faded patches on the pelt, but it just adds to its character and appeal.
The size on the label is marked XL and we estimate it is XL with room to wear a jumper underneath.
