The Simmons Bilt Nasa jacket.

Issued and worn by many Astronauts in the 1960's & 70's we have created our interpretation of this iconic flight jacket. Our Nasa jacket retains many of the original features including the snap stud flap pockets and zippered sleeve pocket. We have however reviewed and redeveloped the pattern to ensure comfort and functionality whilst remaining true to the originals.

Although the originals had a smaller gauge main zipper we felt a size 8 Riri would be more appropriate especially on the heavier weight fabrics but zip options are available. After  a great deal of research we have managed to source a heavyweight knit for both the waistband and cuffs to ensure durability as these ares of tthe jacket tend to be subjected to the most wear and tear.

The Nasa illustrated in our gallery is made from 18oz navy canvas, produced by Halley Stevensons of Dundee who are experts in the production of both performance and heritage fabrics. The Nasa will be available in a range of cotton fabrics & colours should a lighter weight version be more preferrable.

Lining options available including 100% military viscose twill and hybrid cottons from Halley Stevensons (available soon).

NOTE.

We request your measurements for all our jackets so we can select the best size for you from our standard size range. Sleeve and Body length can be adjusted if required.

Due to the nature of the natural raw materials we use and the traditional method of manufacture we employ it is not always possible to meet exact measurement requirements. The products we build are not designed to be tailored like a suit, they will after a "break in" period soften and mold to the shape of your own body, our jackets are built to be worn.

We do not use a production line system or have racks of jackets ready to ship, each and every jacket is made to order, individually handcrafted here in Scotland by one of our specialists.

Bespoke patterns can be created if preferred, please contact us direct with specifications for a full quote.
