Anatomica Reproduces Rarely Seen Poplin USN Flight Jacket

Anatomica’s USN Flight Jacket in Navy is a nod to classic military aesthetics, blending historical design with contemporary appeal.

The USN Flight Jacket you’re looking at traces its origins to the J-7758A model, which evolved from the early 1940s AN-J-2/Spec. The AN-6551 was originally designed as a lightweight cotton flight jacket. Post-World War II, it was reclassified as MIL-J-7758A and saw continued use through the 1950s and into the 1960s. During this period, the ‘Army Cloth,’ a durable cotton poplin, was introduced for summer-weight jackets, offering a practical option for warm-weather flight gear. It also happens to look great, too.

Anatomica’s version of the USN Flight Jacket harks back to this lightweight design, specifically, the model issued to US Navy pilots in the 1950s. Crafted in Japan from the same material, the breathable jacket features four front pockets with flaps and button closures, a small pen pocket on the sleeve, bi-swing back pleats, and a half-belt back.

For anyone interested in a jacket that combines heritage and practicality, the Anatomica USN Flight Jacket stands out as a noteworthy choice.
