N-1 Deck jackets were worn by the aircraft carrier deck crew during world war II and the Korean war. The thick cotton shell and Alpaca lining gave the deck crew the needed warmth and protection from the elements during cold weather conditions. First they were made in Navy blue to symbolize the U/S Navy before it changed to khaki. They were customized often by the wearer with patches or stenciled. The N-1 deck jacket were mass produced, but due to the extreme conditions they were worn, not many of them left, so here you have the correct reproduction made even better then the original by the artisans of Real McCoy's.
