Features

The M-445 was a heavy-zone jacket for the U.S. Navy adopted in the early 1940s.
The M-445, made of mouton, was the most warm-weather jacket of the U.S. Navy's jackets during World War II.
The elbow patches and pockets are made of goatskin for strength, and while the functional beauty of this jacket is inherited, it has been changed to a cotton version for use in intermediates.
The diamond-shaped elbow patches are a symbol of the M-445 and one of its most attractive details.


What's AVIATION ASSOCIATES?
From the 1920s through the 1940s , various types of flight jackets were commercially available at the market featuring the elements of Army spec. When examining the old photos during the World War, we were able to spot a few pilots with a non-Army issued jacket. Officially, soldiers were not allowed to wear non-Army issued jackets, but the regulation became loose during the actual war time. The difference between Army issued and non-Army issued can mainly be seen on the design and material usage, but the similar color was used in accordance with the original Army-issued products to meet military regulations. And also the design of non-Army products were obviously based on Army issued items, many non- Army jackets were somewhat modified with a bit of original twist, providing really classical look to the eyes. Aviation Associates was the legendary line that commercially manufactured by the previous contractor Buzz Rickson MFG. We would sincerely want you to feel the spirit of our product through these jacket.
