Flying.

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

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 (lambskins) 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.

Lambskin Flight Jacket (No. 1970), with plenty of pockets, and located correctly. Brass zippers. Thick cotton-blend rib trim. Gusseted back. Fully lined. Warm, handsome, comfortable. Imported.

And exciting to own.

Men’s sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Color: Brown.

Great jacket, but watch for fit.
This is indeed a beautiful jacket. However, if you wear an extra large, you better have VERY long arms. I am 6', 230, with a 18 neck, 48 chest, 38 waist, 32-33 sleeve - I can be a bit hard to fit, as sleeves are usually long for me (one reason I am looking forward to continuing to lose weight, so I can wear larges!)...but this jacket was especially long - by a good four-five inches! I find overall that Peterman items tend to run long in the sleeve, but this one was especially daunting. I did manage to find someone who modified the cuffs so I could wear it, so I kept it. It IS gorgeous.
