Features About This Brand
 

Rediscover America by utilizing the Schott NYC B-3 Bomber Jacket as your go to choice for warmth , protection and style. The Schott B-3 is Union Made in the U.S.A. and those who demand the best in Bomber Jacket quality, attention to detail, workmanship and materials around the world choose Schott – an American Original since 1913.

The B-3 Fur lined Sheepskin Leather Bomber Jacket was actually originated in Great Britain in the World War 1 era. Most planes did not have cockpits and Flyer’s Jackets needed to be durable , warm , snug fitting and offer neck protection, wraparound collars and snug wrists for warmth as well as zip closures and wind flaps for quick on and off and warmth. The U.S.A. initiated a program to design and manufacturer special jackets for our pilots in 1917 and the jackets became an integral part of the Flyer’s kit during World War II. Most boming raids started at 25,000 feet and the planes featured uninsulated cockpits where temperatures could get down as low as negative 58 degrees.

The B-3 is a tried and true design – it is old but to many also new – the B-3 is Classic while current.

Product Specifications

  • This was the jacket that kept our bomber crews warm during their perilous missions in the skies over Europe.
  • The B-3 jacket is clearly a winner in both warmth and style... even non-aviators like Gen. George Patton chose to wear a specially-modified version of the B-3 (instead of the standard tanker's jacket).
  • The B-3 features: sheepskin, tanned from thick Nappa Leather, all-natural sheep fur, leather welted seams, brass zipper, and buckled collar and waist-adjustment straps.
  • The B-3 also features two front handwarmer pockets, a practical convenience which the original B-3s lacked (the originals only had a small map pouch).
  • You can rely on this classic heavyweight to keep you warm on the coldest winter day, and you can count on its enduring style to survive the fickle trends of fashion! Union
  • Made in the U.S.A by LOCAL 169 of WORKERS UNITED A/W SEIU.
  • Color: Brown
