NOW IN STOCK, LIMITED EDITION RUN.
On March 18, 2020, our friend and hero, Al Worden, died peacefully in his sleep. One of Al's greatest legacies is his inspiration of others to reach for the stars, to get interested in science, technology, engineering, math, and the arts. He believed in Luna Replicas' mission to help support that inspiration, lending his name and partnership to his own special line of flight jackets. He wore the prototype Luna Replicas Al Worden Type 1A (A for Al) jacket for the last seven months of his life. In his honor we are continuing our journey to provide these jackets to the public.
A portion of your purchase of an Al Worden Type 1A Signature Edition Flight Jacket will be donated to the Astronaut Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship Fund.
Luna Replicas is proud to partner with Apollo 15 CMP Astronaut Al Worden, on a very special limited run of Signature Edition Type 1A NASA flight jackets.
These Type 1A jackets match the original "transitional" version of the Flite Wear line, combining features of the Type 1 and later Type 2 jackets. This jacket matches the style of jacket worn by Al in an iconic photo in front of a T-38.
Each jacket ships with a hand-signed 8x10 print of this photo by Al Worden!
These jackets are built from the ground up using historic examples to recreate the original jackets, exactly as they were made for the Apollo astronauts & crews.
Please check your size on the size charts below, and ask questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) before finalizing your order. Size exchanges may not be possible on these limited runs. Size returns will incur a 20% restocking fee for this jacket project.
All facets match the original jackets exactly: including single-piece woven cuffs, exposed sleeve zipper, navy blue colored main zipper, original new-old-stock black enameled pocket snaps, custom dyed lining fabric, and a water-resistant shell fabric that is indistinguishable from the original.
The water-resistant coating will be slightly stiff when new, but it breaks in nicely with wear and after a dry-cleaning or two.
Each jacket comes with a vintage-style "Type 2" NASA logo patch. These patches are embroidered on original machinery with vintage materials, matching the originals in every way (a $25 value alone). Every jacket also comes with an American Flag patch, as well as a cut piece of Velcro Brand loop tape for your name badge/wings. These patches are included but not sewn on, so you can configure your jacket exactly to your specifications at home. We also make custom vintage-style leather wings AVAILABLE HERE.
U.S. Men's Chest Sizes 36 through 52 available while supplies last. (SEE SIZE CHART)
