Standardised as the Type B3 on May 8th 1934 its design was principally inspired by the British Irvin flying jacket which had been put into service with the RAF a couple of years earlier It would be the standard issue Heavy Zone flight jacket for the next 10 years

It went through a number of subtle spec changes during its period of service the most noticeable being the colour of the outer finish By late 42 the shade had been changed for the final time to dark Seal Brown This ensured improved serviceability and lent the garment a more uniform appearance

Original examples are highly sought after collector items today more than 70 years from its conception the B3 is still in high demand Its hip length boxy design made it popular not only with the aircrews of WWII but also the trendy civilian after the war without doubt a design classic
