  • History of the Souvenir Jacket

    Detail of the embroidery on Cockpit USA's 7th Air Force Souvenir Jacket Detail of the embroidery on Cockpit USA's 7th Air Force Souvenir Jacket

    The souvenir jacket originated shortly after World War II in occupied Japan. American soldiers who served in the Pacific Theater commissioned these beautifully hand embroidered jackets as a memento of their travels and time abroad. The souvenir jacket reached the height of popularity during and after the Korean War (1950-1953).

    The popularity of souvenir jackets grew in both Japan and South Korea, following the Korean War. During the Cold War, U.S. military base exchanges around the world, imported souvenir jackets from Asia to sell at their kiosks to meet the demand. These jackets featured “Local maps” combined with some of the more popular Asian motifs. More unique custom graphics also increased over time. Not surprisingly, as souvenir jackets gained popularity with servicemen, these decorative jackets sparked a trend with friends, family, and eventually the general civilian population.

    Established on 19 October 1940 as the Hawaiian Air Force it was part of an expansion program of the U.S. Army Air Corps, activated at Fort Shafter, Territory of Hawaii. After the attack on Pearl Harbor and suffering a considerable loss of aircraft and personnel, the HAF was re-equipped and re-designated in 1942 as the Seventh Air Force based at Hickam Field. During WWII the 7AF retained the mission of providing air defense for the Hawaiian Islands and also engaged in combat operations primarily in the Central Pacific AOR. It was assigned units engaging enemy forces in the Gilbert IslandsMarshall IslandsCaroline IslandsMariana Islands, and in the last major battle of the Pacific War, the Battle of Okinawa.

    During the Korean War the 7AF was based at Osan and Kunsan Air Bases in South Korea and have remained there till this day. A combat ready Air Command and serving as a deterrent to North Korean aggression.

     

    Aloha Hawaii Souvenir Jacket (Coming Soon)

    World War II dramatically changed the Hawaiian Islands forever. In the aftermath of the attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the Naval bases and surrounding Air Fields became the hub of US Pacific Theater Operations for all services. The beauty of the islands were also now seen for the first time by hundreds of thousands of servicemen and women who transited on their way to and from the battlefields of the Pacific. This new exposure would bring more Americans both in and out of uniform to the Hawaiian Islands beginning in the 1950s. Once again Hawaii played an important role during the Korean War from 1950-53, and then again during the Vietnam War. Since then the islands have been home to generations of servicemen and women and still play a vital role for the US Pacific Fleet, and Air Forces.

    Our souvenir jacket is inspired by the mementos purchased for off duty wear in the 1950’s and 60’s by Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen alike. These jackets were often customized based on where one traveled, or was stationed. Often adorned with maps, and local symbols the jackets were eye catching as they were finely tailored from silk, nylon or rayon. Our jacket features a beautifully embroidered map of the Hawaiian Islands, hibiscus blooms and palm trees with references to the famed landmark Diamond Head volcano and Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu. The Cockpit USA Aloha Souvenir jacket is a great piece that celebrates the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, and its rich history.

    Prior to the United States declaring war on Japan in December 1941, a group of American volunteer pilots and ground crew, joined the Chinese in the fight against the Empire of Japan. Nicknamed the Flying Tigers, the American Volunteer Group (AVG) was eventually absorbed into the US Army Air Forces on July 4th 1942, the 23rd Fighter Group was the official new name for the AVG, but kept their nom de gar “The Flying Tigers”.  The Cockpit USA Flying Tigers Souvenir jacket was created to honor the bravery and commitment of the AVG.

    Our Flying Tigers Souvenir Jacket is available for men and women.

  • Customer Story: Tomislav

    "Four years ago, when I was on a business trip, my USAF 21st Century A-2 jacket was stollen and with it a lots of memories from the time I served in the air force. Since it was a huge blow my wife decided to make it up to me and surprised me for my 40th birthday with a brand new WWII Government Issue A-2 Jacket. It was like I got my memories back. It was great to feel that smell and sound of leather again. It reminded me of the days I was wearing it on the job (in the 21st century…not in the II WW-:)).

    I always appreciated how the jacket is slim and tight because I never incidentally turned on any of the million switches in the cockpit…and the cockpit can be tight. The pockets are a bit small but if you are an aviator you always travel light…a wallet with a credit card and some cash, keys and a mobile phone…everything else I can do without. It’s is easily folded for a carriage in a transport bag (or between the handles of the bag, if you want it to be close at hand). It doesn't look like it, but It’s very warm. It’s around +5 degrees C outside now and all I wear is a shirt and a light pullover bellow it. It’s enough to keep me warm while I walk downtown. Since it’s leather jacket it works great in windy conditions too.

    Anyhow, I’m happy as a child again because I finally got my second skin back (and this time I plan to keep it for a long time!).

    At the end, a big THANK YOU to everybody from COCKPIT USA, to Stephane and Laetitia from CAPACHAT.COM and to my wife Iva for putting such a great effort to get the jacket here on time for my 40th birthday celebration (you wouldn't believe what Murphy’s law is applicable to)!!!

    Tomislav"

    This is one of the most heartfelt reviews we've ever gotten. It is always a joy to hear how much love and memories go into the jackets we create. Enjoy for the many years to come.

  • Bring it on. And wear it well.

    "Over the years I have learned that there are five things that a man looks his absolute best in; a real A2 is one of them. This Mustang A2 is a real one. If you look at the styling of the pocket flaps, the collar latch, the cut, the overall appearance of the jacket - its real. I have one and I can tell you that its not just looks, its made that way. And it has that thing - life-worn toughness, I suppose - that makes me look good in it. Until someone comes up with a way to bottle that feeling and that look, this jacket will do me just fine, thank you. If you want pretty, get a designer 'bomber'. If you want a well-seasoned second skin, this is it. What the jacket brings to you is important, but its what you bring to the jacket that counts. Bring it on. And wear it well." - Diesel

    Wise words and an excellent compliment. Thanks Diesel!

  • Cockpit's ANJ-4 Jacket

    The ANJ-4/AN-6552 was a late WW2 development of a sheepskin jacket designed to be more accommodating in a cockpit in lieu of the bulkier B-3 sheepskin, which was used by all aircrew but was not as comfortable in a tight confine. Experimental test samples were developed of this same jacket in leather with various types of linings for warmth and flexibility to accommodate those crewmembers that needed a lighter less bulky material. So a leather version of the ANJ-4 was drawn up and sampled but never produced.

    ANJ-4 Jacket ANJ-4 Jacket

    Cockpit has taken this concept and created our own engineered version of this universally useful jacket, as it permits the wearer to use its two-way zip to sit in a cockpit or a vehicle and loosen the waist as well as side buckles to tighten it to keep the wind out, with added zip sleeves, similar to the British flight jackets, to allow gloves to fit under the sleeves; great for motorcycling as well. The leather is a supple but durable vintage lamb and carries the features of its sheepskin predecessor with USN style patch pockets and a large real shearling collar with throat latch to keep wind out and warmth in. The modern lining is our WW2 parachute pattern nylon quilted to trademark Primaloft for extra warmth, softness and flexibility and two added inside pockets for modern convenience. A truly unique, contemporary jacket with a vintage configuration that sits slightly lower than the sheepskin jackets of the same era for additional weather protection. Proudly made in the USA.
