There are two deep open-top front map/cargo pockets which arte perfect for keeping gloves handy , and two additional front zippered pockets with leather reinforcements at key stress points. There are toggle buttons alongside the covered zipper, storm cuffs, leather rank tabs at the shoulder . This jacket is available in Seal Brown, "Redskin" or Natural Sheepskin.
While the Type B-7 has a generally more relaxed fit with some room in the chest and shoulders, we do still classify it as ‘true to size’ so typically recommend ordering in the size closest to your relaxed chest measurement for the intended fit and don’t normally recommend sizing down.
Don’t worry, all sizing information displayed here is only a guide. Every order placed is checked over by a member of our production team who will confirm your size selection against your measurements or recommend any necessary changes that need to be made. If you have any specific queries, you can note these in the special instructions box on the ‘measurements’ page when placing your order.
