Freewheelers Heavy Wool Melton A-1 Civilian Jacket

When we talk about Freewheelers garments, we ain't got no jokes. They are seriously one of the greatest brand out there making garments for those who only one the best of the best. We bring in this awesome jacket for you this winter.

You can tell from the name - the A-1 Civilian Jacket is inspired by the classic A-1 flight combat jacket but in a civilian style. The normal A-1 jacket normally made out horsehide and since the horse leather is relatively stiff, it create a "structure" when you put it on. The "structure" helps the users to wear something warm underneath but still move around easily.

By "civilian" style, Freewheelers mean to create something that is much easier for daily compare with the traditional heavy combat A-1. So Freewheelers custom made this super unique high density melton wool for this jacket. The wool has been so tightly knit it will give you that "structure" like a horsehide. So the change of shell material doesn't change the classic flight jacket look. This fabric is so beautifully knit and dyed guarantee to be something you never seen before!

Not just the shell, the lining fabric is also interesting. Freewheelers create this beautiful cotton and wool blended flannel that looks like denim when you first look at it. With wears, they will age gradually through using. The jacket has been so strictly made and details are everywhere. If you looking for a serious winter jacket, this could be your best choice!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
