Navy Flight Jacket


Recommended Posts

Hi all. 
I’m hoping to gain some clarity on a flight jacket I’ve acquired. 
I have an interest in vintage US flight jackets and I’ve managed to acquire a few over time. 
I have the jacket attached and I am unable to identify it as there is no information on this jacket on the web. 
The label is completely blank through usage or cleaning and I therefore can gather nothing from there. 
Please could anybody help me identify this garment and if it’s an issue jacket it replica thereof.  
There was the corresponding pants where i acquired this jacket but unfortunately I could not acquire it as the store had sold it off. 
Thank you To anybody for any information about this jacket.

Thank you. It does not have the regular labels and tags one would find on a ‘made for resale’ jacket. I know there’s usually a barcoded tag and at least two identifying labels but this just has that one washed out label on the collar.

I couldn't find any on the Alpha site, maybe they made them for a short time and were discontinued or maybe it was a small special order for a foreign Govt or airline etc.  Gibson Barnes make a replica WEP jacket as well.


I also did extensive searches and could find nothing. 
I need to find an original WEP now :)

I was going by the small black and gold Alpha tag...

Yeah, I saw their logo embroidered on it and that little tag.  I was just saying I couldn't find one on Alphas current catalog,  but Gibson Barnes does make one, but I say theirs is much nicer and authentic looking than this sage green Alpha.
