In the post war years of the late 40s/early 50s, American clothing manufacturers were not slow to take advantage of capitalising on the glamorous aviator image.

Hybrid versions of military style flight jackets started coming onto the market, which high street lingo soon dubbed as 'Bomber Jackets'; a general term used to describe a garment of this genre.

Famous manufacturers such as Sears and Montgomery Ward played a big part in this market; even some of the wartime contractors went on to make their own commercial versions of the Bomber Jacket.

Our offering is a design classic called The Air Comfort - a traditional brand name from that era.

We have used our amazing WarHorse® horsehide leather for this garment, which exudes a beautiful vintage character that only a high quality veg-tanned leather can. The rich colour and rugged texture capture the essence of this era

The extra deep mouton fur collar, with reinforced trapunto stitching to the rear, ensures you keep a warm neck if the wind gets up. A mouton covered throat latch enables the sumptuous collar to be securely fastened when turned up, holding the fur close to the wearers neck and sealing out any cold drafts which threaten to chill.

Highest quality, brushed-cotton moleskin lines the hand-warmer pockets, and top quality rayon-satin quilt lines the body.

The two, deep, inside pockets allow ample and secure stowage for all your personal effects.

100% worsted wool is used for the cuffing and waistband trim.

Available in sizes: 36 - 48
