Luna Replicas was proud to partner with Apollo 15 CMP Astronaut Al Worden, on a very special limited run of Signature Edition Type 1A NASA flight jackets.
These Type 1A jackets match the original ‘transitional’ version of the Flite Wear line, combining features of the Type 1 and later Type 2 jackets. This jacket matches the style of jacket worn by Al in an iconic photo in front of a T-38.
Each jacket will ship with a hand-signed 8×10 print of this photo by Al Worden!
These jackets are built from the ground up using historic examples to recreate the original jackets, exactly as they were made for the Apollo astronauts & crews.
All facets match the original jackets exactly: including single-piece woven cuffs, exposed sleeve zipper, navy blue colored main zipper, original new-old-stock black enameled pocket snaps, custom dyed lining fabric, and a water-resistant shell fabric that is indistinguishable from the original.
Each jacket comes with a vintage-style ‘Type 3’ NASA logo patch sewn on. These patches are embroidered on original machinery with vintage materials, matching the originals in every way (a $25 value alone). Every jacket also comes with an American Flag patch on the left shoulder, as well as Velcro loop tape for your name badge/wings on the right chest.
U.S. Men’s Chest Sizes 36 through 52 will be available.
Price: $475-$490 each, plus shipping.
Made in the U.S.A.
