The A-1 flight jacket revolutionised not just flight clothing, but the production of jackets in general. This new style of 'wind-cheater' which was lightweight, cut to the waist and used knitted components, influenced not only its immediate successor the A-2 but most sports jackets from its first development in the 1920's. 

Most A-1's were made from capeskin, a soft lightweight sheepskin leather ideal for use as it was windproof and comfortable, though it proved to be impractical for the rough conditions of combat. There were very few A-1's made from horse hide, though surviving examples have an almost mythological status.

This jacket is made using Buzz Rickson's 'Bronco' horse hide a veg (wood bark) tanned,  hand painted aniline dyed Italian horse-hide which has a superb depth of colour and variation of tones, which will age individually and uniquely.
