Up for sale is a vintage original World War II USAAF B-7 Parka worn for cold weather conditions. I purchased this directly from the vet himself -he was stationed in the Aleutian Islands during the 2nd World War and sold me this because he was moving. The inside fabric tag states that this is a size 40R . I have a pic of the tag shown.The parka is in Excellent Original Condition - t is normal light wear but no damages -some soiling and a few misc dirty spots. I have alot of pics and will let you judge for yourself. This is certainly not an area of expertise for me but by viewing all the pics you should get a pretty darn good of an idea in regards to condition.The parka was manufactured by Aero Leather Clothing Co. Beacon,N.Y. I believe that the parka is made of lambs/sheepskin.The pockets are leather and the inside is plush and heavy. I know very little about sizing - but tag says that its a 40 Regular. If you have specific questions in regards to size such as arm length please let me know exactly w to measure from. I have zero knowledge about this type thing. I see that one button loop is missing - but this is an simple fix .T is written in ink the person last name and a number on or near the neck area on the hood. You can see this in my pics - no biggy but noted.The parka is a bit soiled and could use a good cleaning.
