M-422 Willis & Geiger


Out of stock

The US Navy’s Bureau of Aeronautics (BuAero) first issued the M-422 jacket to aviators in 1938.

These jackets were the first American piece of uniform to be used in combat, being worn by the famous Flying Tigers, pilots of the American Volunteer Group which started operations in April 1941 in China.

The USN specification required seal brown goatskin with a reddish brown mouton (lamb’s wool) collar and rib-rack cuffs with single layer waistband. We reproduce all these details exactly including the “USN” letters stenciled under the collar.

We make a faithful reproduction of the M-422 design, exact replica of the original jackets as manufactured by the Willis & Geiger Inc.

We use the same specification chrome tanned, drum-dyed, light seal brown goatskin leather that was used in the originals.

Jacket portrayed with Golden (blond) fur.
