This classic 1950s sport jacket was coveted by all fashion-conscious Americans of the time. The A-1 Flight Jacket, developed by the Air Force in the 1920s, was the precursor to the Varsity Jacket. The traditional model featured a wool body with leather sleeves, but it looks just as great in sandwashed silk, corduroy, or ethnic print cotton. Pattern includes instructions for optional hand-knitted ribbing for cuffs, collar, and waistband. Suggested fabrics: Medium to heavyweight fabrics such as wool, corduroy, gabardine; heavyweight cotton; suede or leather. Also, summer weight fabrics such as rayon or washed silk. Misses and Men's sizes XS-L.
