The U. S. Navy's Zippered Deck Jacket from 1941 remains a classic. It was the first of the jacket styles adopted by the USN that would become iconic during WWII. In 1942, this style, along with the later hook-front and blue N-1 jackets, received a "U. S. NAVY" stencil in silver-gray lettering across the upper back, but the early-production jackets had no such stencil and this Buzz Rickson's version of an early 1942 model is 100% authentic in not having the stencil. All of these Buzz Rickson deck jackets utilize the same period-correct, heavyweight, corded-cotton fabric found on the heavyweight N-1 jacket, but blue was the only color the zippered style was originally made in; in every way, this is a jacket style that is faithful to the original design and materials utilized.
