MODERN AVIATOR

MODERN AVIATOR

The strait-waisted Modern Aviator is a flight jacket that no engineer or architect could pass by without a closer look. The pure aniline dyed leather is hand-rubbed, the seams are antique finished by hand-waxing, and the duel stitchlines are contrast colored navy blue; but what’s truly special is the detailing. Shoulder epaulettes and chest and waist-pocket flaps are functional button-downs, and concealed beneath the chest pocket and underneath the waist pocket flaps are zippered pockets–or pockets-on-pockets one might say. Even more intriguing, the strap at the top of the front-zip closure folds to snap to the wearer’s left collar stand or straightens and snaps to the wearer’s right collar stand, cinching the storm packet. Leather zipper pulls, created especially for this jacket, complete the well-engineered ensemble.

A detailed shot of the functional bi-pocket treatment. The flap unbuttons to allow side-entry to one pocket, while the leather pull unzips to provide side-try access to yet another, underlying pocket.

The leather zipper pull opens a pocket within a pocket–that is, the pocket accessed by unbuttoning the flap. While too many cooks may spoil the stew, the two-pocket system is a unique feature.

An Ode to Pockets and Plackets, this description might read. Or to paraphrase: the collar connects to the collar stand, the collar stand connects to the front yoke, the front yoke connects to the zipper gusset, the zipper gusset connects to the unbuttoned pocket flap, the unbuttoned pocket flap connects to the zipper pocket, the zipper pocket connects to the leather zipper pull…and so on and on and on, with more design details and special features than one can imagine. Did I mention that the stitchlines are a contrast colored navy blue?
