Flight jackets are a staple in many a man’s jacket collection and there is no rush in the classic demising any time soon. Originating from the military needing a jacket to keep their pilots warm during WWI when most airplanes did not have an enclosed cockpit, the flight jacket was born. Over the years the flight jacket has become a part of popular culture and appeal, filtering down from the sky onto the streets.
New for AW17, Norse Projects have taken the flight jacket and given it a modern take, making this a must have. Crafted from premium quality Italian suede and given no lining for a lightweight design while the classic flight collar has been kept in shearling for a warm addition. Other features of the jacket include 2 slanted pockets with shearling lining, Italian Riri zips to the front closure and designed to sit about the hip for modern stylish look.
