Made through the combination of three shades of warm teddy fleece fabric (Re Live Tex certified) featuring a classic plentiful collar and frog buttons on the shoulders. Added in the bottom of the jacket and sleeves, a border in lycra couleur bleu royal.
PAST A flight jacket is a casual jacket that was originally created for pilots and eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. It has evolved into various styles and silhouettes, including the "letterman" jacket and the fashionable "bomber" jacket that is known today. The B3 flight jacket was designed for aircraft bombers who needed to go up high altitudes. Thus it could be rightly referred to as the ‘bomber jacket’. The material composition are a combination of sheepskin and very thick sheep fur. The jackets were not meant to be just the regular types, as they were intended to keep people warm at an altitude of up to 25,000 feet. Thus earned the jacket its reputation as one that was capable of providing sufficient warmth. Each of the jackets had two leather straps that could be used to close the open collar; but unlike the other jacket type, B3 jackets did not have a knit waist band or a trim fit. The bomber jacket originates from military clothing which trickled down into subcultures such as punk and has recently made its way into high fashion.
