FOR SALE - WWII 1944 USN US Navy N-1 Khaki Deck Jacket Buzz Rickson Size 34 Demotex-ed - $495.00 SHIPPED IN USA
Up for sale is what I consider to be the best REPRODUCTION of a 1944 USN N-1 Deck Jacket on the market. This jacket is brand new and was ordered from Japan where it was an edition sold in 2013. I ordered the wrong size; otherwise it would never be for sale. THIS JACKET IS A SIZE 34 AND IS IN BRAND NEW, UNWORN CONDITION, WITH ORIGINAL TAGS AND BOOKLET.
Jacket features Grossgrain cotton jungle cloth outer that is 100% windproof with 1940's Talon brass zipper and authentic melamine buttons. Interior lining is an alpaca / wool blend just like on the original WWII issue of this jacket. Collar flips up to reveal a liberty "zig-zag" stitch and there is a wind resistant flap with button on the front. Other features include knit cuffs that are secured up inside the sleeve so that they don't snag and provide a superior wind seal. Bottom of jacket has two grommets on inside housing a drawstring cord to cinch the bottom tight against the wind.
Buzz Rickson sells two types of the N-1 Deck Jacket and this is the heavy duty version with the Demotex-ed label, which reads: DEMOTEX-ED. - MOTHS WILL NOT DAMAGE - A CHASE FABRIC. Purchasing this jacket domestically through History Preservation will cost you $688.50 shipped to your door and their model does not have the USN stencil (Japan only).
Jacket is a size 34 and measurements are as follows:
1) Chest - 20"
2) Shoulders - 16-1/2"
3) Length - 25-9/16"
4) Sleeve (shoulder seam to sleeve cuff) - 24"
5) Waist - 20"
PRICE - $495.00 SHIPPED IN USA (ALSO LISTED ON EBAY FOR $550.00 SHIPPED IN USA - BEST DEAL ON BLOG AS THERE ARE NO EBAY FEES). PAYPAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY METHOD (ONLY) TO PUREHEAVENSMETAL@YAHOO.COM TO PURCHASE. ONLY ONE (1) AVAILABLE.
NOTE: ORIGINAL WWII WATCH CAP IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS SALE AND IS NOT FOR SALE. WATCH CAP JUST USED FOR PICTURES ONLY.
