Irvin Flying Jacket Restoration

This project was something different for me. I was given a genuine World War 2 Irvin flying jacket in a poor condition and asked if I could repair and restore it. After some research I managed to replace the zips and collar and repair the torn casing over the internal wiring. This leather needed re-hydrating as it had crumbled in places and patches needed to be sewn over the various tears and holes.
