Hello All,

Look at A9 flight suit pants on line, I am seeing different colored suspenders.

What would the correct color be for 1944 time frame?

Thanks

No variation in color by year of manufacture, more likely just variations between different contractors. The suspenders were not exposed, so no need to be an exact match to the exterior color of the trousers so I've seen various shades of OD. The ends that buttoned to the trousers were a shade of russet leather, however.

Thank you for the reply. I know if I get the B10 jacket they will be covered,

 

What I am finding is the OD like mentioned , But I also see Black & Red suspenders. Those A9 pants seem to be in much better condition. I want to make sure I am not getting a parted together set that would not be correct. It is just when I get them and share them here. I don't want to hear bad news

I doubt that the red ones you saw are original. I'd examine the method of attachemnt to the trousers, as I believe civilian suspenders, possibly added in the post-war era, would not use the same leather attachments as found on the OD examples. If it were me, I'd stick with an OD pair. Good luck!
