This is a WWII B-3 Flight Jacket in Brown Sheepskin Leather By PHILLIPS TANNING & CLOTHING CO of Newburgh N.Y. US Army Air Force Pilot Jacket.

Very early and extremely rare Wartime Jacket.
Measures 21inch pit to pit , 25inch top to bottom(top of shoulder seam, not including collar to bottom), 24inch shoulder to cuff, 19.5inch shoulder to shoulder.
Please note all my jackets are VERY OLD, RARE, GENUINE VINTAGE leathers. Some of them will have been worn for over half a century, they will show signs of use, general wear, marks, scuffs etc. I try to describe as accurately as possible but what i may consider to be an amazing vintage Leather with a stunning Patina might be seen by someone else completely differently. Vintage clothing is not for everyone so please be aware before offerding. Thanks
This is in very worn condition and not really wearable in its current state. The main zipper is fractured half way up, one of the collar buckles is missing, the jacket has wear and cracking best described by the pictures, some repair patches also (see pictures), sheepskin lining pretty good but discouloured. Certainly not beyond repair and extremely rare to find an original WW2 B-3 by this maker..
