This vintage military sweater is an original USAAF A1 sweater from the 1940s. The sweater was designed for use by Air Force mechanics and engineers. It's made of a thick wool material that's designed to keep you nice and warm, as it was originally used to protect mechanics while they worked on planes in the cold open air. The sweaters eventually became popular among pilots too, who used them to keep warm while flying in frigid high altitudes. The pullover style sweater comes in a handsome military green.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is some fading and several repairs, see pics.
