    Default Private purchase Luftwaffe flight jacket

    Hey guys,
    I understand that these are virtually impossible to validate without solid provenance due to not being an officially issued item,but are there any glaring red flags that you can see with this one?
    I like the medal loops and the insignia seem to match the wear of the jacket. Any thoughts are appreciated

    Opti zippers were/are made by an English company. Whether they were used in german jackets i do not know.

    Thanks Dan,
    This is apparently french made. The jacket is a "cyclist" jacket which were purchased by pilots privately with insignia added. That's what makes them hard to validate
