Vintage USN Alpaca N1 Deck Jacket World War 2 Era Size 42 Large.
Label is faded and we can't see size, Arm pit to Arm pit is 27 inches laying flat and shoulder to shoulder is 21 which we estimate being a size 42 equivalent to Large but please check all measurements and consider 0.5 inches thickness alpaca lining
Absolutely love the N-1 jacket I bought from Rare Gear. I wasn't sure on the sizing and the person who I chatted with grabbed the jacket, double checked the measurements, actually had their boss try it on to confirm the fit and sizing, and on top of that compared it to other vintage jackets I own. I was looking for a fit that was slightly large to my normal size so I could wear layers under it. If you have vintage stuff from WW2 you know the sizing can get a bit squirrely. The fit is perfect, just a bit large with summer clothing so I expect it to fit perfectly when layered up for winter! Only real complaint is the pricing is steep, but not unfair for the market...and you get what you pay for...the jacket is in immaculate condition and perfect! Will be buying from here again. They have the larger sizes that are harder to find and go for a premium if you can even find them nowadays. I have my eye on a few other item already!! Thanks again!!
