Many in the style and menswear world are familiar with the iconic A2 leather flying jacket but its lesser know predecessor the A1 is worthy of equal praise (read more on the history of the development of American Flight Jackets).
Taking inspiration from the flight jacket which saw service from 1927 until the early 1930s, this iteration from Warehouse has been produced in an olive melton wool. The jacket sits high on the waist and features nut buttons, knitted cuffs and waistband, patch pockets at the hips and a roll collar.
With this piece, Warehouse are continuing the approach that they’ve become known for over the last two decades. Rest assured you’ll be getting top notch construction and high quality components from this leader in heritage, with that textbook Japanese twist and attention to detail.
Available for £725 (~$935) from Clutch Cafe London.
