ARMY AIR CORPS (AAC) FLIGHT TROUSER (WOOL LINED) TYPE B. These extremely well-preserved wool lined pants were often worn by U. Crews flying at high altitudes, during historic WWII air battles.Sheepskin lined Trouser exterior is brown dyed leather with two large thigh pockets. Full, heavy duty zipper is centered vertically from waist to crotch of trousers. Additional heavy-duty zippers are located on lower legs, extending to lower leg openings. Trousers are also equipped with heavy duty permanent suspenders.
Trouser leather is clean, supple, and unfaded. Pic indicate some white lines; latter are not defects, they are seams that have wool lining in them. Note exception(s): leather checked one point (pictured), and tiny specks. Latter could be corrected with polish, but not by me. Wool lining appears spotless, with absolutely no mothing.Fabric suspenders have a heavy leather separator, end tabs, and bright buckles no rust, etc. Zippers, and suspenders are excellent. Zippers, and other stress points are reinforced by heavy calfskin. A leather hanging loop is attached rear top interior. A black tag has letter B.
An additional white tag has embroidered FALO , REG. MOTH TREATED, PENNSYLVANIA SALT, MANUFACTURING COMPANY, PHILADELPHIA. Waist 37-38; inseam (crotch to cuff) 28. Inseam size may have accounted for thermal boot wear.Been associated with military and particularly military aviation artifacts for many years and have never seen the Type B trouser in this condition, outside a museum.
