The Army Air Corps had introduced their A1 bomber jacket in 1927, and when the CCC needed a simple to produce winter jacket, they took heavy inspiration from their USAAC brothers. Introduced in the mid 1930s, the jacket would change from the A1's leather to a thick melton wool shell, with a cossack style knit collar, heavy knitted cuffs, and an elasticated waist.
For its age, this is in spectacular condition. The collar and cuffs, bar a couple of small moth nips are in solid shape, and the wool shell is still heavy and thick. The button holes have been restitched at some point.
