Flight jacket style worn by German Pilots,Aces of the Luftwaffe, the Messerschmidt pilots Hans-Joachim Marseille, Erich Hartmann, Werner Moelders, Guenther Rall, etc.
Throughout his service with the Luftwaffe, Major Hartmann can often be seen in archive images wearing his short leather jacket, which he no doubt acquired during the early part of the war when he was posted in France. Many Luftwaffe fighter pilots had this style of jacket which was originally commercially purchased (not issued) at ordinary clothing and motorcycling shops in France. In fact, they were actually referred to as “Cyclists Jackets” by the Luftwaffe pilots. Made of a fairly lightweight and close-cut construction, they appealed to the German fighter pilots both for their smart looks and their applicable use in the cramped cockpits of aircraft, such as the Bf109.
