The aircraft carrier deck crew wore N-1 deck jackets during World War II and the Korean War. The thick cotton shell and alpaca or wool lining gave the deck crew the needed warmth and protection from the elements during extreme cold weather conditions. The initial series was produced in Navy blue to symbolize the U.S. Navy before it eventually changed to Khaki.
This is a reproduction of the 1943 version of the 1st Type N-1 jacket. The cuffs are wool, with gaskets and a gun belt under the arm. The wool lining is light brown. These are details that remain true to the original.
In order to best determine fit, it may be helpful to compare our garment’s measurements to a similar garment you already own. Lay your garment on a flat surface and take all measurements from the outside of the garment.

Fantastic Jacket! Sized up from my usual size 36 to a 38 as recommended. The fit is great, and as the wool lining is so thick I doubt much layering will be needed. If you want to layer with a thicker sweater etc underneath, consider even sizing up x2.
Great jacket, great fit. Good price. Be sure to order one size up your regular size, even two sizes if you prefer roomy fit with plenty of room for your thick submariner woolen sweater.
Fantastic jacket ! Love it.
Looks great, amazing quality, will definitely be a returning customer
so good...I bought another one !!!
Very satisfied with the product, very good quality and very warm jacket.
A lot of models of N1 jackets on the market but for me Bronson is the best.
