Only four models of the Air Force jacket are blue, they are N2A, N3A, L2, B-15C. The B-15C(MOD) version replaces the wool collar with a ribbing one, it is made from a custom-made fabric that authentically replicates the true color and characteristics of the highly durable nylon material from that era.
Nylon 66 was invented by DuPont Co. Nylon 66 is more flame resistant and durable compared to other nylon fibers. Bronson has studied the original Mil-Spec formula to replicate its yarn, density and weave.
Both O. D. and blue B-15C Flight Jackets became icons of the Korean air war, and possibly the most famous of the B-15 Flight Jacket series, having been extensively photographed while being worn by film star Marilyn Monroe and her entourage while performing in a USO tour of air bases just after the Korean war.

Great quality replica in affordable price. Love the attention to details such as zipper and tags, however shoulder insygnia prints still need some work - they're quite low quality and start falling of after just few weeks of regular wear.
I love this jacket. Thick cotton and constructionBut chest size is small for me
I'm a spanish ww2 collector and I'd like to share some little modifications I've made to my Bronson's B15C
- Scovill's and Talon's NOS brass zippers
- 15th Air Force Original Patch
- USAAF original patch
- 332nd Fighter Group Repro patch [The famous Red Tails]
- Name Tag: Lew Archer
I hope you enjoy it.
Very nice Jacket and fits exactly.The jacket is very well made .Greetings from Michael
A very solid jacket with the real deal feeling, it’s made to last a lifetime and promise to keep you really warm in this upcoming winter
Excellent quality jacket using densely woven nylon and wool lining. Warm and comfortable runs very slightly trimmer than the Ma-1 one of my daily wearer’s.
Again a great jacket! Got already B-10 and MA-1. All my Bronson jackets are super nice and top quality. I‘m 192 cm tall and have a weight of 87 kg. 42 fits perfect!
Excellent quality. Now all That I need is a F-86 Sabre jet to go with it !
Very nice and well made jacket, and as a flying jacket collector You can’t fault it for the price . I will be buying more Bronson products.
