Thanks
That is an all original WW2 uniform. My uncle was a an ATC pilot in WW2. Had the "pink" pants but they were worn out. He wore them when he got out. I guess there was no reason to let tehm go to waste!
Here is what was behind the uniform.

So your uncle was a pilot! What great history!

What a sharp display! Great condition!

Who were the makers? Any tags inside?

Gotta love leather patches also!

Nice stuff for sure!

Thanks.
I love the way they sewed the bullion directly to the material.
The A-2 is by United Sheeplined Clothing Company. It belonged to a friend who was a P-51 pilot and then later a Combat Cargo pilot in CBI.
The B-3 is by Roughwear Clothing Company. It is what collectors call "Redskin" due to the early hand applied dye and color.
Yes, my uncle was a pilot in the CBI. Here is a copy of teh Hump Pilots Association book he is listed in. Ron
