For sale is a new old stock WW2 A-4 flight suit, in an uncommon size 48. The wool is in pristine condition with no moth damage. The only issue to note is there is a light layer of oxidation on all of the hardware components. There are some scattered marks from oxidation transfer from the zippers, see the detailed photos for an example. The wool still has visible original yellow chalk marks from assembly from the fabric roll and also marks for placement of the pockets, etc.
All zipper and snaps are functional. You should also be grabbing the pull closer to the spring hinge and not the end with the leather pull tabs as you could bend/break the lever. There is a small portion of 4-5 inches where the main zipper tape has a gap near where your fly would be.I've seen this on other A-4 suits, so my assumption is it's intentional. Marked a size 48, see approximate measurements. 21 - shoulder (with back pleats folded flat).
26 - armpit to armpit. 24.25 - across belt. 25 - sleeve (outer edge shoulder to cuff).
