J009873 (IJN) NAVY PILOT’SFLIGHT SUIT.Olive drab rayon one-piece flight suit, as introduced in 1937. It has a zippered vertical front closure, with a hook and eye to its top, and a four-buttonholed fly to the left side the zipper. The latter mates with four large wooden buttons to the right side of the closure. Its lay-down collar has two smaller wooden buttons to its left underside through which a horizontal tab is attached which, when unfastened from the farther button, swivels forward to mate with an identical button to the right underside of the collar. An approximately 8cm x 6.5cm patch is sewn to the left breast. Underneath it is a roughly oval-shaped patch pocket whose vertical closure is fastened by a button identical to those found under the collar. A vertical belt loop is to each hip and the center of the back. Vertical slashes are to each hip, each with small wooden button closures, allowing access to the interior. A two-button vertical fly is beneath the zippered front closure. To the front of both thighs are pleated patch pockets with scalloped flaps, again with small wooden buttons. The cuffs of each sleeve and to the base of each leg have zipper closures with wind flaps. All of the zippers still function perfectly. The interior is fully lined in dark blue quilted cotton. Roughly a size 42. Excellent example.
