U.S.N N1 Deck Jacket Reproduction In Olive
|Size (cm)||Chest||Shoulder||Sleeve Length||Body Length|
The N-1 Deck Jacket (Ver 2) is a luxurious take on the 1940s deck jacket no.3. We have used a heavier weight Supima Organic cotton cord cloth which has a far more visible cord in comparison to our standard N-1 jungle cloth fabric that we’ve produced before. The N-1 is 100% Alpaca lined in keeping with the N-1 deck jacket characterisics. For this re-production, we’ve changed from the original Talon Zipper to the Japanese Made WALDES zipper.
The N-1 jacket was introduced around 1943 as part of the Navy’s new and improved line of special and protective clothing. The jacket construction requirements were covered by specification No N: 37-J-3 INT according to which it was a hip length jacket the shell of which was made by a heavy corded cotton grosgrain, a very tough fabric, more commonly known as jungle cloth. It was lined with alpaca wool which extended to the collar and it also featured two slanted pockets, a draw-string skirt, wool storm cuffs and a hidden chinstrap. The closure was zipper and it also had a buttoned flap for extra wind protection. It came in three colors, initially in navy blue, which was replaced by olive drab shade no. 3, and finally olive drab shade no. 7.
It was tested by the Arctic and Cold Weather Coordinating Committee of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations at Point Barrow, Alaska, for use by shore based personnel and was found to be satisfactory during moderate cold.
The N-1 was issued to Naval ground personnel serving in the Temperate, Cold and Arctic Zones to insure adequate protection under the various climatic conditions. It saw heavy use in WWII onboard ships and ashore and although the latest specification MIL-J-20026 – JACKETS, TROUSERS, AND HELMETS, WINTER, N-1, was canceled in 1951, it was used also in the Korean war and until the 1960s when was withdrawn.

Jungle Cloth is a very strong and durable material, so it was perfect for the day-to-day, hard-wearing, needs in an outerwear piece.
Also known as “Bedford Cord,” a cousin to the corduroy, the material was used in the U.S. Military during the 1920s-40s for its water-repelling properties in servicemen’s apparel. It was then termed, “Jungle Cloth.”
Today Jungle Cloth is made exclusively in Japan on special order to the garment trade.
