WWII US Army Air Forces Summer Flying Suit AN-S-31A Full Color Logo Size 38 M. Vintage late World War II Army Air Forces Suit-Summer Flying AN-S-31A.
Manufactured by Davis Sportswear in size 38 medium. This one is constructed of lightweight khaki twill and features a full-color USAAF logo on the left shoulder and an outline logo on the inside.Not all flying suits have these. Talon bell zips, one with a leather strap, on the front. Large flapped chest patch pockets, large waist pockets and flapped/buttoned pockets low on the front of the leg as well.
Has original belt and brown plastic buckle. This garment was never washed and may never have been worn.
No holes, rips or wear. The fabric has that smooth, crisp feel and the pocket linings have never had a hand in them. The zippers glide up and down smoothly. The buttons are all present and the plastic buckle is intact.It has acquired a whitish coating and has warped a little over the decades but that is typical for these. As photos show, there is very minor soiling/darkening from 75 years of storage on and around the collar, on the left side of the zipper (photos 7 & 8) and on the flap of one of the leg pockets (photo 9). In addition, there are some dark marks on the back just above the belt as seen in photo 10 and a small stain on the left leg (last photo). MEASUREMENTS (Laid flat): 18" shoulder to shoulder, 22" shoulder seam to end of cuff, 20" across the waist and 27 1/2" on the inseam. Like any coveralls these are of a drop-crotch design so if your normal inseam is 30-32 that would be a good fit.
Measurement from nape of neck to leg openings is 59. These are basically made for a guy about 5'8 with a medium build. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog. The item "WWII US Army Air Forces Summer Flying Suit AN-S-31A Full Color Logo Size 38 M" is in sale since Sunday, March 28, 2021.
