STYLE: G1S

(13)
The G-1 has been the primary leather flight jacket for Naval Aviators dating back to the 1920's. Marine Aviators, who received their training under Navy direction, also wore the G-1. For a period of time after beginning late into WWII, the G-1 leather flight jacket was even supplied to Army airmen. This 27" thick supple antique lambskin G-1 jacket has a detachable sheepskin collar, two-way front pockets, an intricate lining depicting the story of "Wings of Gold". This jacket is imported. Available in black and antique leather.

    IF YOU LIKE THE G-1 STYLE YOU'LL LOVE THIS

    not only a moto & mil leather jacket nut but the G-1 is my fave. there are so many varieties of G-1 but the main division is those made for military use and those for civilian use. everything can be styled the same even, and there will be differences because of the use made for.

    actual mil contract G-1s are historically cool, but quickly mass manufactured and you will find 'acceptable' contract faults. those who love the G-1 need at least one historical. BUT if you love them you also need a more well-crafted version, which would be a premium G-1 civilian version with actual mil contract design elements.

    that would be this great G-1. albeit it does have a few differences: 1. made of more premium lambskin, 2. side entry hand warmers (which are expertly done so as to be hidden), 3. detachable mouton collar (mils are not detachable.

    all of the additions of the civi version make it non-historical from a collector's POV, but more usable. Of all the many G-1s i've ever purchased, this is the most high end and enjoyable to luxuriate in. it was a real treat for myself. and yes, i knew it was made in China to Schott's design/production standards. it is such a wonderful jacket, that does not deter me from loving it.

    Height 5’8 in, Age 56, weight 187 lbs, chest 43 in.
    Usually I wear XL with Schott.
    With this jacket L is the very good suit because it’s a bulky jacket.
    As the model on pics.
    Very nice flight jacket.
    Do no hesitate to get it.

    MADE IN CHINA

    So sad to find out this jacket is made in China. I got the last one in the store for 25% off but it was final sale. Got home and realized it has a made in China tag on it... such a shame for an American icon. Still a nice jacket but not the same knowing it is imported from China.

    Response from Schott NYC: While the vast majority of our products are made in the USA, we do import some items and make sure to clearly label them as so. All jackets will have a clear country of origin right in the neck label.

    WONDERFUL JACKET

    Published: Fri, 6/21/2019 by Big Schott Fan and Happy Camper

    While this jacket is imported, it is made to Schott quality standards: great leather, seams, style, and craftsmanship. I am 6'4", 220lbs, a 46 chest but with broad shoulders and I prefer a looser fit to wear a sweatshirt underneath. While I usually go with 2XL and/or 48 (long) sizes with Schott, I ordered an XL. That gave me the fit I prefer (i.e. go down one size of what you normally order - a 2XL would have been too bulky here). Schott actually suggests L, but they are always a bit on the snug side (at least for my taste). Great jacket - I recommend it and would buy it again. Don't hesitate and go for it - you won't regret it.

    FIRST TIME SCHOTT CUSTOMER

    Published: Sat, 12/15/2018 by JamesLynch615@gmail.com

    The quality of the G-1 from leather quality, to fit and finish is nothing short of a superior product. I love the leather quality and styling. I purchased the G-1 for weekend outings but due to the beautiful quality I could wear this jacket anywhere. I am very happy with my purchase from Schott.

    THE SMELL OF LEATHER!

    Published: Tue, 12/4/2018 by Dave H.

    I love the smell of leather in the morning. The robust and vibrant smell of leather. This leather jacket is the real deal. Sized to fit as noted on the Schott website. Well made and attention to detail was evident. I highly recommend this leather jacket if you're looking for an aviator-style leather jacket.

    FIVE STAR JACKET

    Published: Mon, 3/26/2018 by R.C.G.

    This is by far the best jacket I have ever purchased. Customer service alone is worth buying from Schott! The jacket delivered is better quality in my opinion to many others I have researched. I really believe it is a value given the quality.

    To All
    I bought this jacket in memory of my dad who was a US Navy pilot for 33 years. When I was a young boy I would wear his and play in it. This new jacket is exactly the same.
    It will be worn proudly and with great respect of my dad and all military service members.
    Thank you for a great jacket.
