First issued to Navy pilots during World War II, the G-1 flight jacket is still standard issue for officers and enlisted aviation personnel in the U.S. Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard. For civilians, the jacket might be best known as the signature look of Tom Cruise's character Maverick from the 1986 movie Top Gun.


Our replica G-1 is made in the U.S. by Schott of pure goatskin, and has the same features as the real thing: a bi-swing back (a gathered inside back panel), under-sleeve gussets, front patch pockets with button-down flap closure and a hidden pencil holder, and a brass zip front closure. It even has the "USN" perforation detail inside the wind strip, and of course the mouton collar, which is sheepskin that's been treated to look like beaver fur.


The lining features an embroidered replica of the U.S. Navy aviator's wing and the Naval Flyer's Creed, which begins, "I am a United States Navy flyer: My countrymen built the best airplane in the world and entrusted it to me. They trained me to fly it. I will use it to the absolute limit of my power."


Union-made in the U.S. Please note: This is a replica of the military issue G-1. Goatskin leather shell, sheepskin collar, poly lining, nylon knit cuffs and waist. Men’s sizes M (38–40), L (42–44), XL (46–48), XXL (50–52).


Professional leather clean only.

    The first aviators adopted leather as their material of choice because of its durability, warmth, and good looks. This garment takes its inspiration from the G-1 Jacket that was standardized by the US Navy in 1940. The G-1 displaced the iconic A-2 style in the mid-1940s. In 1969, the US Navy Fighter Weapons School was established and only the very best aviators were invited try out the "Top Gun" course. Those who graduated represented the best of the best. These elite graduates adorned their issued G-1 Flight Jackets with military patches that reflected their personal accomplishments.

    (Based on 8 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
    This authentic B-3 jacket became the military-issued cold-weather flight jacket in 1934, and it is still the warmest and most insulating bomber jacket made. Aviators in WWII bombers came to rely on their B-3 jackets as they often flew their missions over Europe in unpressurized cabins, where air temperatures could drop to more than 60 degrees below zero. Our B-3 is made from an amazingly soft and supple genuine sheepskin with a classic, aged look and deep-pile natural shearling along the body, sleeves, and collar. With double straps under the collar and straps at the waist that cinch to adjust the fit and keep out wind. Traditional leather welted seams and side-entry pockets are authentic details from the original. Made in U.S.A.

    National Geographic performed an important service during World War II as we supplied maps to the Allies. Maps were often sewn in to the lining of the A-2 flight jackets in case the pilots were shot down over enemy territory. This is a reproduction of the historical WWII flight jackets, originally issued in 1931 and then worn by the allied pilots who flew perilous missions over wartime terrain, and the lining features a re-creation of the survival maps of southern France. A surface of vintage French lamb leather adds to the authenticity. Features include some of the customizations that pilots preferred, such as the wind flap, front zipper with storm flap, hidden snap-down collar points, knit cuffs and waistband, and flap-top and side-entry pockets. Imported.

    Being prepared for travel in changeable climates doesn’t have to mean bringing twice the gear. Our water-resistant, blazer-style jacket is perfect from Seattle to São Paulo. Its ability to shrug off wet weather is due to the tight weave of the fabric, not a surface waterproofing treatment, so it remains effective even after years of wear. Four exterior patch pockets, two hand pockets, interior zip pocket, and interior MP3 pocket with an earphone pass-through slot help you keep a ton of travel essentials within reach. Button cuffs customize the fit.
