During WWII, the C-2 was an inner-wearing sweater for the mid-temperature or cold zones. It can be worn inside aeronautical flight jackets such as A-2, B-3, B-6. C-2 sweater is not used in large quantities. The C-2 sweater is not too thick, and the wear and tear are very high. The collections that can be preserved so far are rare and of high value.
Its appearance is very low-key, early OD color is a yellowish olive green, and some even close to brown, zipper closure is characteristic. You should know that in the military uniform that pays attention to efficiency, it is often to choose the pullover, but the C-2 is still arbitrarily using a zipper, the front has a pocket to place small objects, similar to the baseball sweater's knitted thread collar design, wearing an unexpected spirit.

What a comfortable sweater right out of the box. Highly recommended
Excellent quality,very authentic as a reinactor perfect ! Look forward to other items to do with the usaaf 8th especially .Thanks Paul.
Accuracy? Certainly acceptable. Price? Reasonable. Delivery time? Fast. All in all, a lot of bang for the buck, here. Note that the sizing runs a tad larger than tagged, as against many items made in China that run smaller than tagged.
Always a big fan of Bronson and I’ve been wanting a USAAF Type C-2 Wool Sweater and this is an amazingly well designed version that I look forward to wearing this winter! I’m 5’10” 160 lbs and the size 38 is a perfect fit with enough stretch room to layer over a long sleeve shirt!
Absolut fantastic quality and workmanship. Fits true to size. Nice under a B-6 or an A-2 if it´s getting too cold.
Well, after purchasing two B-15As and a B-10, I was confident that this beautiful AAF sweater would live up to its description. And it did. It’s beautiful, warm, and thin enough to fit perfectly under any of the WWII flight jackets. It’s great to look at and easy to wear. No one should hesitate to add one to their collection!
This sweater fits exactly as the description says, and fits perfectly with all of my jackets, from the A-2 to my G-1, and also with the cloth jackets I have. It even works with the winter types like the B15 and B10. the material is quality, and the construction is first rate. It works really well in the cold weather, as I can attest.
Nice jumper, quite thin but warm. Great with Bronson jeans & socks!
I ordered this sweater for wear with my A2 flight jacket, but it wears equally well with my other flight jackets also. It fits closely to the body without feeling too tight or stretching, and gives me the ability to use my leather and lighter L2 style jackets longer during the seasons. Materials and workmanship are first rate, and the look without a jacket is great, too.
I wear it in my office under a twead blazer with blue or white oxford shirt.
It's warm, strangely fancy
Was about to buy an RRL equivalent which came with a patch and retailed at £300. Then this item popped up which was more exact as to my vision and at a fifth of the price. Once it arrived I was shocked as to its exceptional quality and fit. These Bronson people have really hit home with their pieces. Here's hoping they keep extending the range. Hats off to them.
Super nice quality, fits perfectly based on the size chart. Thanks!
This sweater is the opposite of bulky, but very warm and fits great, without bulk under my various flight jackets.
Great item, looks very Good..
Nice wool blend sweater. It runs a but small, so I should have ordered a 40 instead of 38. But it’s still nice to wear under a hoodie or whatever.
Very well constructed, the wool is impeccably knit and a heavier than expected weight of wool. Even dyeing of the yarn and perfect zipper. Well done!
Nice, quality ok.
This an excellent Sweater for layering and is a very soft and tight wool knit for maximum warmth without bulk.
Also- Bronson now has a warehouse in the state of Delaware- so shipping is MUCH quicker to US customers now!!!
Easy ordering, great product!
Superb quality reproduction for usaaf sweater C-2.
Great quality C-2 sweater, the fit is period correct and it is heavy weight wool with solid construction. It's just as nice as the much more expensive reproductions, but not overpriced and made for daily wear. If you are looking for a WWII correct sweater to wear under a flight jacket, look no further.
Easy to order
Sales dpt replies immediately on Sunday !
