Black leather German pilots Jacket
Made of a quality lightweight and close-cut construction, they appealed to the German fighter pilots both for their smart looks and their applicable use in the cramped cockpits of aircraft, such as the BF109.
This type of Flight jacket was worn by German Pilots, Fallschirmjager Officers and also by Michael Caine in film "The Eagle has Landed".
Aces of the Luftwaffe include: Messerschmidt pilots Hans-Joachim Marseille, Erich Hartmann, Werner Moelders, Guenther Rall, etc.
Throughout his service with the Luftwaffe, Major Hartmann can often be seen in archive images wearing his short leather jacket, which he no doubt acquired during the early part of the war when he was posted in France. Many Luftwaffe fighter pilots had this style of jacket which was originally commercially purchased (not issued) from motorcycling shops in France.
