The Real McCoy's Type B3 Sheepskin Flight Jacket is a blockbuster in the truest, most literal sense of the word. Originally designed to keep WWII flight crews warm and safe during long-haul, high-altitude bombing runs, the B3 offers a burly and armour-like blend of sheepskin, horsehide, and cowhide.
The Real McCoy’s have pulled out all the stops here, crafting a jacket that honours the original design using only the finest and toughest materials. The sheepskin lining is dense, insulating, and extends right through the cuffs and the substantial collar. It’s a design that not only grants the jacket one of its most recognisable features, but also provides maximum warmth and protection. The outer is wrapped in a tough, lustrous, and lightly pebbled cowhide accented with horsehide-cut arm panels, hip pocket, and seam reinforcements. Brass DOT button closures and a 40s-style, nickel-plated custom zipper come through with more of The Real McCoy’s fastidious attention to the smaller details.
Worn by everyone from Steve McQueen to Marilyn Monroe, the B-3 Flight Jacket is an iconic slice of militaria that also enjoys enduring prestige in wider menswear conversations. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece.
A Note on Sizing: The Real McCoy’s B3 Flight Jacket is bulky by design, with a substantially thick sheepskin lining. Please keep this in mind when looking at the size chart. Chest and shoulder measurements in particular will appear much larger than the tag size suggests. Focussing on the body and sleeve length will give a more accurate indication of the jacket’s true fit.
