Pilot uniforms and equipment - IJNAF #2

The one-piece Navy pilot's winter uniform below was also recently sold on the Japanese ebay. It's a Type 1942 and was almost identical to the Type 1934. The fur on the lapel could be brown or white.



The tag says "Supplied by: Second Uniform Factory Arsenal - Made in: September 1943 - Size: 3 - Name: ?" 



Below is a photo of W.O. Suzuki Kiyonobu, a Navy fighter ace with more than nine kills. He is wearing a Type 1934 uniform and is standing in front of a Mitsubishi A5M.
