Wow–these were the days! Digging through our archive we found a picture of our first store in 1986 that was on 595 Broadway in New York. We were the first themed, fashion store on Broadway, with a real T-6 Aircraft inside. Now you can visit the aircraft at the American Airpower Museum in Long Island and we've moved uptown to 15 W 39th St. Anyone else remember the old store?

Imagine after three months of your first flying lesson, you set a record breaking flight of 576 miles from Boston to Washington, DC, and land on the lawn of the White House. That's exactly what aviator, Harry N. Atwood did.
Atwood began training to be a pilot at the Wright Brother's Flying School in Ohio. Soon after his flight to DC, he began flying across the U.S. from Chicago to Milwaukee and then St. Louis to New York. Wanting to get more involved with planes, Atwood, left exhibition flying to build planes. He managed to become a flight instructor for William Starling Burgess and then General Aviation Corporation. After a few years with he realized that he belonged else where in the skies and went back to exhibition flying. On May 31, 1912, he made the first airmail in delivery in Massachusetts from Atwood Park to Lynn.
Military style has been around for centuries, a look that is inspired by ones nationality and military pride. Hannah Miles from the blog, M/LES, wore our mens “Vintage Vietnam war era USMC” Embroidered Canvas Field Jacket and mens “Las Vegas lady” Pinup T-Shirt for her story on the military style trend. We like the way she styled everything and made the look her own.
