Vintage Irvin B. Foster & Sons Sportswear "Type G-1 Spec" US Navy Flight Jacket
Irvin B. Foster & Sons began manufacturing the G-1 flight jacket in the early 1960s. The jacket had been in production since the 40s, but starting in 1961 the Navy gave contracts to two companies: Foster & Sons and Ralph Edwards Sportswear. The patterns for the jackets were supplied to both companies so the fit was nearly identical, but the brands still had their own subtleties. The Foster & Sons G-1 was noted for its superb quality, and now decades later the leather was been worn in perfectly while still retaining a rich and dark color. This original Irvin B. Foster & Sons G-1 Jacket is in great condition with no fraying, a tiny patch of fur missing on the collar, a small tear on the cuff, and an original Conmar zipper. All imperfections are shown in the photos.
