Classic B-6 Bomber Jacket
Forget freezing cockpits and dogfights.
Think the streamlined sex appeal of a 1935 Auburn Boattail, sipping morning coffee in weather you can see your breath in, castle-hunting on English moors, and being instantly more likable but not entirely approachable (they once called this mystique).
The classic B-6 bomber jacket is one of those few pieces of history whose splendid aesthetics were the result of practical ingenuity. Whether you were the gunner on a B-29 or the pilotof a P-38 Lightning, keeping warm was a very personal thing and a variety of jackets were tried, all in the hopes of striking the perfect balance between warmth and maneuverability. The B-6 was that balance, the Bentley of shearling-lined bomber jackets—substantial, nimble, and not for the faint of heart.
Classic B-6 Bomber (No. 5870). Slightly weathered lambskin shell with contrasting goat leather trim on zipper placket, slash pockets, waist and collar belts (both adjustable). Lined from top to bottom in supple shearling with exposed shearling at sleeve, collar, and bottom opening. Substantial and striking stand collar. Zippers on the underside of your wrists. As warm as it is striking.Imported.
