First, we would like to share a little history of the Flight Jacket to give you a snippet of exactly why they were made and how it got to become a part of popular.


In World War I, most airplanes did not have an enclosed cockpit, so pilots had to wear something that would keep them sufficiently warm. The U.S. Army officially established the Aviation Clothing Board in September 1917 and began distributing heavy-duty leather flight jackets; with high wraparound collars, zipper closures with wind flaps, snug cuffs and waists, and some fringed and lined with fur. In the early 2000s, the jacket was popular casual wear in hip-hop fashion. The jacket has also caught on with several police departments across the United States for its sturdy design and heavy insulation. The jacket has had a resurgence in popularity during the 2010’s in street fashion, and is a notable staple of celebrities such as Kanye West.”
