This season’s must-have jacket, with Vietnam War-era details, features washed brown flight sateen on the outside, and JT orange rather than standard rescue orange on the inside. The blood chit (or identification flag) contains an authentic message in several languages identifying the wearer as a U.S. Aviator.
The original purpose was to offer a reward for assistance in returning fallen airmen safely to American military bases; today it offers a heritage style detail. The ‘remove before flight’ flag is likewise JT orange with JackThreads’ logo.
