RAF Jacket was designed by legendary American aviator pioneer, Leslie
Leroy Irvin, the US Air Ministry approved this jacket in 1932,
As the altitudes pilots flew got higher the temperature got lower, reaching sub-zero temperatures,
it was then Irvin created the R.A.F. Flight Jacket. During WW2 because the jacket was in such high demand and materials grew scarce,
Irvin had to enlist subcontractors to assit and started producing his jackets in the UK.
This is where variations of the style and colour occured including the Battle of Britian & the Alpha Jacket.
The RAF Jacket was worn famously by the former Spitfire Pilots of the Royal British Airforce.

I will buy...
I will buy another one in future because it is a good investment.
This product is very well priced and compares really well compared to anything in the Uk
Problem is, as with the leather pants I also got from N H, the sizing is all wrong. My "XL" fits fine in the shoulders and chest, but the arms are intended, apparently, for a gibbon. They were so long I had to cut off the last 3 inches or so, and use a special leather glue to attach the folded sleeve ends to the rest of the sleeve. My arm length is 34 ", which is long).
Also. while there are zippers closing the sleeve ends, they are still way too open for cold weather riding and I have made some "velcro" straps I wrap around the sleeve ends to seal out the cold wind and allow my glove gauntlets to go over. That works fairly well.
The jacket is exceptionally well made, and of the highest quality; as with my horse pants, Noble House has a problem with correct sizing.
I've had mine...
I've had mine for a while now, waiting for the colder weather.
Finally it has arrived, well the snow has, and the jacket is excellent.
Seriously warm, and what a collar for when the wind gets up.
