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.

The Gordon & Ferguson M-422A design is perhaps the most popular of the USN jackets. Its distinguishing ‘trademark’ characteristic is the wider pencil slot pocket, salmon red lining, pointy collar and of course slim fit. Our jacket is an exact replica of the original.

We make the version with the back piece sewn over the front panels as that’s how the original example we used for patterns was but we can make it the other way around if so desired. There have been original examples with both configurations.

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