HORSE HIDE Leather
A2 -- "Mustang Fighter Pilot" Military Jacket with Talon Zipper in HORSEHIDE!
This measures about 22", Arm Pit to Arm Pit!
(So it's probably compatible to jackets sizes more like 40 or 42)
PLEASE CHECK THE MEASUREMENTS vs A JACKET THAT FITS YOU.
Excellent Condition -- this hasn't been worn hardly at all, it's just starting to get the "characteristic horsehide crinkles" -- it's not really broken in yet. It has NO SMELLS, no dog or cat in the house, no smoking, no mustiness, no body odor.
This fit's trim, consider it an athletic fit -- the size 44, evidently, refers to the chest size (if you have a 44" chest, you probably couldn't move if you were able to zip it up). The waist is elasticized wool, as are the cuffs. There are two cargo pockets with snaps. The collar snaps down and there is a "hook", that can be used to keep the jacket closed at the neck. The zipper is a TALON brand, which has "TALON USA" on the back.
This style A2 has not been modernized -- no inside pockets, no additional slot for the hands in the pockets, nor any gusset in the arm pit. It seems to be a pretty true to the original -- an excellent WWII era Military issue A2 jacket reproduction.

PLEASE CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS AGAINST A JACKET THAT FITS YOU:
The chest measures about 22", from arm pit to arm pit on the front.
The sleeve length is about 26" from the shoulder seam to the end of the wool cuff (the cuff is about 2" -- so consider the leather part 24" with an additional 2" flexible wool cuff).
The sleeve length from the arm pit seam to end of the cuff is about 19" (the leather part is about 17" -- plus the flexible wool cuff of about 2")
The length, measured on the back, is about 26 1/2" from the top of the collar to the end of the wool waist band.
the 26 1/2" includes the wool waist band (about 2 3/4") and the folded collar (about 1 3/4"))
The waist -- which has the lightly stretchy elasticized wool, is about 19", and can/will stretch out a few inches.
The pictures show the color, fairly closely -- it's a beautiful brown.
