This is a fully revamped design of this same glove style offered by Eastman Leather since 1999, but now made with Eastman's all-new, fully vegetable-tanned, fully aniline-dyed horse hide that is the most impressive they have ever offered.
This original glove type was the USAAF fighter pilots’ glove of choice. Ruggedly handsome and made from a sumptuous, fully aniline-dyed, fully vegetable-tanned unlined horse hide, the 1942-pattern gloves were available to all officers on flying status, as well as paratroopers (to protect their hands from parachute-riser burn). This is one of the most rare and desirable gloves styles to see action in WWII, now lovingly recreated and available in the same premium horse hide Eastman imports from a top Italian tannery as used to craft Eastman jackets; previously, the horse hide used on this glove style was not the same as that used to craft Eastman jackets.
Whether flying, driving or for sport or dress use, these remain a classic accessory - then and now!
Sizes available: 8 (XS), 8 1/2 (Sm), 9 (Med), 9 1/2 (Lg) & 10 (XL). Please see BODY MEASURING for instructions on how to measure your hand to enable you to purchase the correct glove size.
