The suffix (C, M, L, X) determines the length of sleeves and back (from short to X long). The military size 92C corresponds to a French 46 or US/UK 36 with'short'arm length.Will fit a 36 to small 38 (a french 46 to small 48) depending on how tight you want to wear it. Please compare the measurements to a jacket that fits you. Length (from base collar to bottom) 60. Shoulder (upper seam to upper seam) 44 cm. Armpit to armpit 56 cm. Waist (adjustable push buttons 3 positions) (max) 50 cm. This 92C is cut for a man or teenager with a height in between 1.60 and 1.70 m, US chest size 36 to small 38. Although this is a men's jacket it can also suit a woman size FR 36-38, or US size 4 to 6 maybe 8, but check the length of the sleeves and the chest size. Beware of copies / reproductions passed off as genuine PN Jackets. Amongst genuine jackets (official equipment supplied by french Air Force) and jackets bought on military bases, yes or not made to special order on the base by the master tailor admittedly they might well be conform to spec but even then they are considered civilian copies whether they were used by'pn'(= personnel navigant) or not, as long as they don't have the'ordre de marche'(contract number and year of production) and older and present time reproductions again yes or not conform (for example with a horizontal seam in the back) it's not all that easy. As if it was not already complicated enough, a number of official manufacturers, did also commercialize civilian copies identical finish and cut, but often in a heavier less supple leather.
Distinguishing characteristics of a genuine PN jacket ("blouson de la dotation" or jacket from the Air Force endowment). 7 pockets 2 exterior pocket, 2 inner'orders'pockets, as well as 1 pocket in the lining with the emergency jacket, 1 pocket on the chest for the grade and 1 pocket (circular on the early versions, rectangular on the latter) on the left sleeve. Elastic wind stoppers in the cuffs.
Waist adjustable with push buttons three positions. , military size and contract number ('ordre de marche'). Main zipper is a heavy two way brass zipper ECLAIR (ECLAIR and not YKK).A red orange (NOT YELLOW) emergency jacket, hidden in a small pocket in the lining. A removable brown (and NOT BLACK) synthetic mouton fur collar, fixed at first by button later by zipper. A black (and NOT BLUE) removable lining fixed by zipper and velcro (not on first generation jackets, those with the circular pocket on the left sleeve).
Zig zag stitching on collar. Take in mind that the copies / reproductions most often fail on criteria 4,5, 6 and 7. Regretted by figther pilots when the model was discontinued and replaced by the Kermel tissue jacket, this jacket is still much appreciated by pilots. Represents a unique present -- late Christmas present? -- for pilots, collectors and aviation enthusiasts or just simply for someone looking for a quality jacket.This is a rare opportunity to acquire a brand new original'pn'pilot jacket. It might be a unique opportunity if it's your size. Please verify the given measurements against those of a jacket which fits you. As is wearing the young man below.
It won't have the no longer produced ECLAIR brass zippers though. And not necessarily the zig zag stitching on the collar.. Check my sales history and corresponding feedback.
