This B-3 is the classic WWII sheepskin leather “Bomber” jacket.
B-17s and B-24s were not pressurized and the unheated cabins got awfully cold at altitude. This sheepskin jacket kept our bomber crews warm during their perilous missions in the skies over Europe.
The B-3 bomber jacket is clearly a winner in both warmth and style. Even non-aviators like Gen. George Patton chose to wear a specially-modified version of the B-3 (instead of the standard tanker’s jacket). You too can rely on this classic heavyweight shearling to keep you warm on the coldest winter day, and you can count on its enduring style to survive the fickle trends of fashion!
