These Jackets had been worn by German and French civilians since about 1920, its not known exactly when production ceased but is thought some time during the early 1950s. These Jackets were popular amongst the german fighter pilots due to their Lightweight, close cut and because they could be worn comfortably in the tighter confines of the closed cockpit. This particular Jacket is a German model by INDIAN with 'Zipp' Zippers.
Its impossible to know for sure if this was an actual Luftwaffe Pilots Jacket, no insignia / shoulder loops have been added, but then again many pilots wore their jackets without insignia or many of these insignias/badges were applied post wore to boost values of these jackets.
