Description
 

Reproduction of the iconic WWII Navy N1 Deck Jacket. Like all of our uniforms, we started with several authentic examples from the War, in a range of sizes to create the pattern, materials, and colors. The shell is made from a tough corduroy ribbed cotton, (called "jungle cloth" by the Navy), and inside the body, sleeves and collar is a warm artificial pile fur lining. Tubular knit internal cuffs keep the heat in, and a drawcord at them hem allows the bottom to be closed.

All of these jackets are "sterile"- meaning no "U.S.N." stencil on the chest. Most originals have it, but a few did not. Last Fall, I wore an original deck jacket out barhopping and got fed up with hearing "thank you for your service sailor" every 4 minutes. (Sorry, I was a paratrooper- almost as bad as a Marine right?)

Overall these look as nice as the much more expensive reproductions, the only major difference being the lining. It's physically lighter in weight than that used in high end (and original) jackets- but it kept the price down- and looks & works great.

Imported

Only buy USA made?
1. The price would double or triple.
2. The materials would have to be imported anyway because the American fabric mills have gone out of business.
3. Buzz Rickson's are made in Japan and cost $400. Those are the only alternative N1 available at this time.
