The Limited A-2 Rough Rider Buffalo Leather Freedom Flight Jacket with the 8″ X 10″ Leather American Flag Sewn onto the inner Lining:
THE QATSPY® Yankee Prestige-Style Traditional Apparel Quarters Company
The A-2 Cape Buffalo Leather Freedom Flight Jacket is apart of the Rough Rider Buffalo Leather Collection.
The American Flag that is sewn onto the lining of this Authentic A-2 Leather Flight Jacket dates back to the early days of the 1940’s, prior to WW-2, with American pilots that formed the American Volunteer Group (AVG) known as The Flying Tigers. These pilots were part of the fighter group flying for China in the famous P-40 Warhawk. An Important part of these pilots’ A-2 Flight Jacket was what was called ‘Blood Chit’, sewn onto the lining of their flight jackets to help identify them as American pilots to the Chinese people asking them to render assistance to these American pilots, in case they were shot down. This practice continued throughout the Korean War.
The A-2 Leather Flight Jacket was developed for the U.S. Military in the 1930’s to provide protection and designation to the U.S. Army Air Corps and to certain elite paratroopers, such as the 82nd and the 101st Airborne Units. As legendary and distinctive as it was during the Second World War, it provides the same distinction, legendary look, and protection today as it did then, with some updating, made from one of the World’s toughest leathers, the Cape Buffalo Leather.
The Cape Buffalo Leather has that Old-World, antique patina look and feel of the original classic A-2 Leather Flight Jacket, but even with more TRUE GRIT to last for generations as a heirloom that has the 8-inch X 10- inch hand-painted, leather American Flag sewn onto the lining of this treasure. Whether on a motorcycle or catching a flight to meet clients, the A-2 Leather Cape Buffalo Flight Jacket has that perfect fit for either the lady or gentleman for any occasion that presents itself.
The A-2 Leather Flight Jacket can also be personalized with either the Harley-Davidson or the Indian Motorcycle Rocker patch on the back panel of the jacket that can be purchased at checkout and professionally sewn on by the skilled craft-persons at US WINGS®. Just like the World War II pilots and paratroopers that used the original flight jacket for protection and distinction, this same A-2 Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket can accommodate the open road and still be used as a great option to a Sports Jacket for business or social events and still maintain the style you require.
These two top and bottom rocker patches can be purchased separately at CHECK OUT, just by selecting the option of the vintage-style Harley-Davidson Biker’s Patch or the vintage-style Indian Motorcycles Biker’s Patch. The listed price for each patch includes the rocker patch and sewing fee of the patch onto the Jacket.
NOTE: The customer can select from either the vintage-style Harley Davidson Motorcycles or the vintage-style Indian Motorcycles Patches purchased at CHECKOUT. We also are now carrying the U.S. Second Amendment, “Right to Bear Arms” Patch. You can select the image of the A-2 Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket below to read and purchase this special jacket that you will be proud to wear to show your support for the 2nd Amendment.
