There’s nothing that is more distinctive and legendary than the Leather G-1 Leather Flight Jacket with patches, like the one worn by Tom Cruise in the original movie TOP GUN. But it was World War Two Veterans returning home from World War 2 that made the G-1 Leather Flight Jacket the iconic jacket that it became, shown below. These Veterans used the G-1 Leather Flight Jacket for that distinctive look with patches.
You can have the same distinction, feel, and look in that Antique, old-world Brown color, that is tough, rugged, and durable, and that describes the G-1 Jacket.

Just a little personal background on my first introduction to aviation at the age of 12, My grandfather bought me a remote string operated P-40 Warhawk model to fly in the pasture in the back of our house. That was when the passion for aviation got into my blood to actual fly one day. As fortunes and opportunities would have it I enlisted into the U.S. ARMY 101st Airborne Unit with the 326th Combat Engineers. After my service I worked 33- years with a Transmission Line Utility as a Grid Engineer where one of my responsibilities was to fly aerial patrol, flying over 500- flight hours a year. Now I still work with an Aviation Museum where we sponsor airshows.
