Flying.

Children have always known: concentrate hard enough (and in secret) and you will be able to fly.

That dream ended when it suddenly became true. People were able to fly anytime, anywhere. Without even concentrating. They just bought a ticket.

Today we might as well be taking the bus. Today, what we can’t seem to do, is soar. The way flying used to be, then, at the beginning—that, now, is a dream. P-38s, Wacos, Stearmans, Stinsons, Mustangs, Spitfires, will all soon be collected like Blue-Period Picassos.

The flight jacket of those days persists; it got better with time; then, in the mid-forties it became actually great.

This is as close to one of those as you can get. It rings true. No flashiness. Five hand-finished hides (goatskins) go into it.

It has the sweet, serious, mysterious aroma of real leather, of old leather library chairs in a room in Rome. The aroma goes with you where you go, like a companion. And it lasts.

Authentic Flight Jacket (No. 4565). With plenty of pockets, and located correctly. Antique bronze zippers. Acrylic rib trim. Gusseted back. Fully lined. Warm, handsome, comfortable. And exciting to own. Imported.

Men’s sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Color: Chocolate.

Disappointed
Bought it for my husband for Christmas. He always wears an XL because of his broad shoulders. The leather is beautiful but unfortunately it runs VERY SMALL. Wish it was offered in @ least a 2XL.

Good Jacket
Great jacket however, I have a long torso and can never get them to make these a little longer, although by and large, flight jackets were mean to be shorter due to activity level...still, I prefer about 2 inches in my jacket! But quality is very good!

Authentic Flight Jacket
Great Jacket Fits true to form and the leather is soft and supple yet rugged. It has the military fit yet you do not feel constrained in it. Great value for the price. I have had a lot of A-2 Jackets but this is the best. Don't look elsewhere. Mr. Peterman has a fine eye for practicable fashion .

Nice jacket
I bought this item for my husband several years ago. He loves it but the leather does wear. He takes good care of it, putting on conditioner regularly, but the seams still lose the color.

Buy it for him...
Trust me, he'll like it. I broke down and bought one of these for my husband last year. It's wonderful...handsome, soft, comfortable, fits true to size. He pines for it all summer long and will wear it when it's still a little too warm for a jacket. Totally worth the money!!
