WWII Aleutian Arctic B-7 Parka Size 36
This is an excellent example of a WWII coat that has achieved grail status among collectors. The B-7 arctic parka was only made at the very beginning of WWII, but was later discontinued because it was deemed too costly to manufacture. It was made out of sheepskin shearling and worn by flight crews in unheated cockpits in Alaska and other arctic regions. Quality reproductions by Real McCoys sell for over $5,000. This specimen is in excellent condition, considering it is 80 years old. It was made by Aero Leather Clothing Company. It shows normal wear and tear and has very few stains. Because these parkas are light colored, it is rare to find them without excessive soiling. The sheepskin is smooth and pliable, and the shearling inside is soft and unblemished. The coyote fur color is in good shape, and all the buttons and Talon zippers work well. There is only one major flaw with this parka, which is a hole on the left elbow. The exterior leather is split, but the shearling is still without holes on the inside of the coat. I am willing to have the hole professionally mended free of charge with the patch shown, but I have not yet done so. There is another small hole at the top of the right front pocket. The tag size of this parka is 36R. I am 5’8” tall, 165 lbs, with a 39” chest, and it fits me perfectly. Please see photos and measurements for more details.

這是一件所有收藏家都夢寐以求的經典二戰大衣。這種B-7北極抗寒大衣僅在二戰初期生產過一段時間，後來就因製造成本太高而絕版了。它是用羊皮剪絨製成的，為了在阿拉斯加和其他北極地區的飛行人員在沒有暖氣的駕駛艙內保暖而設計。它是由 Aero Leather Clothing Company 製造的，現今 Real McCoys 的復刻品都售價超過了5,000美金。這款大衣表面的綿羊皮光滑柔韌，裡面的剪羊毛柔軟無瑕，野狼毛的顏色依舊鮮艷光澤。所有的紐扣和 Talon 拉鍊都手感很好。鑒於它已經有80年的歲月沈澱，能保存到現在這種品相已經非常難得。要知道這類大衣由於是淺色的，一般都有很明顯的污漬殘留。但這件大衣只有一些正常的磨損和不明顯的污點。外部的皮革已有裂紋，但大衣內部的剪羊毛並不受影響。這件外套唯一比較大的遺憾是左手肘上和右前口袋的頂部有一個洞，我這邊可以提供免費的專業修補服務。這件大衣的標籤上的尺寸是36R。本人身173cm，體重75kg，腰圍84cm，穿這件大衣正合適。請參考照片和測量數據以瞭解更多細節。
