Manufacturers created the flying jacket to provide warmth and comfort to pilots, but it developed into a popular fashion item. Leslie Irvin pioneered one of the most famous flight jackets when his company supplied them to Royal Air Force pilots during World War II.
Today, a flying jacket makes a practical and stylish winter coat. The leather exterior and sheepskin lining provide almost unbeatable warmth, but faux alternatives are available. Stay chic and cosy with a flying jacket.
