The G-1 is one of the longest running US military garments of all time. Produced for the Navy starting in the 1940's, production continues to the present day.
It's a close cousin to the A-2, but with a taller ribbed waistband, a mouton collar, and buttons replacing the snaps on the pockets. A bi-swing back was added for more mobility in the tight cockpits of the Navy planes in addition to those changes.

Private White has taken this excellent template into the civilian world with their Flight Jacket. It retains the shearling collar, ribbed cuffs, and patch pockets but updates the fit and details. They've chosen to build this piece in a UK-woven merino wool doeskin, which is a hard wearing medium-weight fabric with a short nap and a tight weave.

Constructed entirely at their own factory in Manchester, UK, it also features a cotton lining in the body, viscose lining in the sleeves, and tubular quilted wool insulation for warmth and breathability. Closing duties are performed by a custom RiRi copper zipper. There are pockets all day long as well, including side-entry additions to the front patch pockets (addressing a common complaint about flight jackets), and two massive interior zippered pockets. 

Runs true to size. Dry clean only.
