US Wings is excited to add USCG G-1 Custom Handpainted ship jackets.
In addition to US Navy ships, our renowned resident artist Jim Harley can also custom paint any USCG ship onto our Handpainted Naval Jackets! Using only the highest quality paint, which will never chip or peel, ensures that your handpainted artwork will last for ages and become a treasured heirloom. It’s a truly unique way to honor a ship that you or a loved one served aboard. Any ship you specify can be painted on the back of one of our leather jackets. Likewise we can paint the ship of your choice onto your own jacket.
Our Signature Series Goatskin G-1 is handcrafted in the USA from the highest grade materials. We are known worldwide for exceptional quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity. With its distinctive fur collar and pleated action back for freedom of movement, the G-1 is the leather flight jacket for USN & USMC aviators. It was made very popular from the movie “Top Gun”. It’s also worn by the USCG. We supply the US Military and many government and law enforcement agencies with this same jacket. You can be assured that this G-1 is the finest of its type anywhere in the world! Made in the USA.
