The Type A-1 is the predecessor to the very popular WW2 A-2 flight jacket dating back to 1927. Original sewn up in capeskin (a type of sheepskin), it was a very soft, easy wearing jacket. Unfortunately, the softness of this hide means finding an original A-1 is nearly impossible, as the cockpits of aircraft during that era were not at all forgiving on garments.

As with all leather jackets from The Real McCoy's, this jacket is sewn atelier-style. One sewer makes each jacket start to finish. Every component of the jacket is custom, made only for The Real McCoy's including the deerskin hide and the cotton sateen lining. 

The fit is true to the original, slim and sleek. Cleaning should be by a leather jacket specialist only.

Further details

The Real McCoy's is a brand that one could say is the best Americana repro brand in the world, but that does not even begin to do justice to the level of detail or thought that goes into their products.  

Nearly every single fabric, button, tag, and thread of these garments has been custom made to meet the spec of the original. In fact, when we first met with them, they told us the story of having a very specific thread recreated because it no longer was available. 

While the fits have been updated a bit to blend with more modern wardrobes, everything else is exactly as it was. It just doesn't get better than this if you're looking for wearable artifacts of the early and mid-20th century.
