Hi from a newbie who just wanted to say thanks for a cool thread, I've learnt loads about Deck Jackets today reading it.  Clap

And this is the first time I've seen another photo of a jacket I have, but didn't know if it was a real Navy issue jacket or not until recently. I had thought it was a vintage civilian jacket, similar to other flight and bomber style jackets in cloth and leather.

I've since learned from the scrap of a label in it that it's early '45 from the NxsX96660 in it.
It's had a hard life, and I've replaced the knits and zip. I guessed at the knit colour, and am pleased to see I wasn't actually far off. I was tempted to use green tanker jacket knits.

I've always been disappointed there are no stencils on it, but have resisted the urge to add them.

I'd be very interested if anyone could tell me exactly what I have here. I'm thinking I have something inbetween the N-1 Deck Jacket, and the earlier blue tanker style ones.

Cheers, Mike.

I was able to handle the deck jacket by Dehen 1920 last week and it blew my mind in every way. 10oz waxed cotton outer with full mouton fur lining. Luxurious and heavy. Steep price on it, at $1250, but totally worth it.

Mike, totally missed you post!

what a great find!!

I don't know much about your jacket, other than the B-15 might have been inspired by it's design. Or don't know if they are related to those NAF alpaca lined zip deck jackets, mentioned a few pages back and in the last image you posted.

I noticed 2 almost similar repro jackets, by Butcher Products (known for their excellent repros) and Radiall (not a pure repro brand, they like to mix and match in general):

"Import" explains why the ATF jumper can be sold for $60.  Amazing!  Haven't had any of their stuff but looks pretty good for that price. Appears they are responsive to customer reviews as well.

I have owned a few items from ATF over the years and their stuff is good quality for the price. It typically runs much looser than your average fashion forward company making fake military...i.e. RRL. I'm going to pop on one of these denim shawl jackets.

Their Deck Jacket looks good. I was interested in the comments made about stencils, and why they haven't put the U.S.NAVY on the back of theirs. I've recently picked up a cheap secondhand Pike Brothers one, also without the stencil. I'd like to put one on, and have googled all the images I can on them. Most seem to have exactly the same stencil on the back, making me think they were all done properly in the factory. ATF think differently though, although their reasons are mixed ...

At the Front We will not have US NAVY on the back. After all the caterwauling over the Air Corps stencils on B10's years ago, we are making them sterile. The stencils were done at the Navy yard or by ship crews- not in the factory. Not all jackets got them so this is also correct. This will DIY and then we won't have to fight with the experts over whether or not the letters are the right font, the right size, 1/4" too low, 3mm off center, what's the pantone color of the ink....

At the Front I've never had or seen a white stencil. They are a very light gray with a bit of metallic(?) something. (That doesn't show in the photo.) If you wear one of these out in public with the US NAVY on the back, it'll be "thank you for your service" all damned day. I know, a few people crave that but most of us get annoyed.

I'm happy with the Pike Bros one. It has niggles ... the sleeves feel long, and square ended. There isn't a taper in to the knit cuff. Other than that a good fit.

This came in the mail Friday and for $60 I'm not going to complain...looks really good and the denim is thin and grainy like the original. Maybe an oz thicker (comparing to actual vintage WWII dungarees). Size is spot on...L measured 24 chest, 19 shoulder and 26 sleeve. Compared to what other similar companies are offering, this one is much closer to the real thing.
