US Navy introduced its first nylon jacket (BUWEP-U.S. NAVY JACKET, WINTER FLYING SUIT), later known as the G-8(WEP), in the mid-1950s. The initial versions are SPECIFICATION MIL-S-18342 and SPECIFICATION MIL-S-18342A (Light olive green, partial Khaki-green), the middle version SPECIFICATION MIL-S-18342B, and the final SPECIFICATION MIL-S-18342C (WEP) was changed to color Olive Green.
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.

It's actually smaller than expected but I love the quality of it.
I love this jacket, it’s very nearly the same as my father’s 1950’s Navy issue WEP.
The price is amazing! The quality is amazing!
One little problem, I’m a fat American, size 44 is too small. If you start making 46’s I’ll buy another deck jacket and an Ma-1! I promise!
Thanks for the great work and fast shipping
