This Jacket evolved in the 1950's as USA looked back for inspiration to the exploits of Air Crews in their A2 Jackets. The A2 pocket became replaced with the corded border four pocket design still typically referred to as a "Bomber" Jacket or "Fly Boys" jacket. They resemble the style of the WW2 Type A2, but with that wee bit more room retaining that typical authentic "fliers" look, yet with more comfort and movement than the WW2 Type A-2.
