As the credited suppliers of the flight jackets (and other associated apparel) to the blockbuster movie Pearl Harbor, we are proud to offer our special edition 'Time Worn' Pearl Harbor A-2.
As you may well have noticed we offer the Time Worn finish on many of our jackets now. However it was the Pearl Harbor A-2 where this popular and convincing aging technique was first introduced.
We refer to this model A-2 as the Pearl Harbor because it was precisely this specification A-2 that we supplied for the film; an Eastman A-2 with the pre-war style collar and used appearance - 'Time Worn'.
'Time Worn' was a process that we developed as a consequence of a request from the movie makers to supply 'used' looking flight jackets. This is a process that has been honed over the years to produce an extremely authentic vintage looking garment.
Made from high quality veg-tanned Horsehide this model A-2 is available in a choice of two shades: American Walnut and the slightly lighter Havana brown. It has a rugged, broken-grain vintage appearance that is appreciated on so many of those original A-2s we so dearly love the look of.
