100 mission shearling

  • The Iconic Cockpit USA Collection, styles designed to withstand the Test of Time

     

    One could be forgiven for mistaking film classics such as “Top Gun” and “Pearl Harbor” as just box office hits that drove movie ticket sales sky-high! Fortunately, Cockpit USA is here to remind you there is more...

    Top Gun Movie and Cockpit USA's "Movie Heroes" Top Gun Jacket

     

    We remember stories of war and tales of loss. Moments of love, heroism, and redemption. A time when young men and women dressed in uniform fought for a country they called home-the United States of America.

    It’s there in the shield of armor we call American Style that we immortalize these historical events.

    Eight decades have passed since Amelia Earhart’s ill-fated flight across the Pacific but it’s her courageous step into harm’s way as the first female pilot to fly over the Pacific that inspires the narrative. It’s Earhart’s legend that still encourages young women in aviation today and also inspires our Amelia Jacket and coat.

    100 Mission Bomber inspired by General George S. Patton

    “It’s better to fight for something than to live for nothing”, said General George S. Patton whose decisive command decisions took the lead in the great Battle of Bulge in 1944. Patton’s highly recognized image taken during that fateful battle gives historical meaning to our B-3 sheepskin styles launched back in 1977.

    As art imitates life, we recount the story of American Heroes on the silver screen. Actors such as Tom Hardy and Cuba Gooding Jr. recreate these events in renowned films such as “Dunkirk” and “Red Tails”. While some may be true and others “inspired by”, it is the people that wore them that give them iconic immortality…

    Since 1975, our mission at Cockpit USA is to preserve and continue to share this history through quality garments that are timeless, classic and iconic.

  • Stories Of The Jacket: 100 Mission B-3 Jacket

    Don't let the January blues get you down! We may be in the midst of winter and snow storms may very well be on the horizon, but there's no reason to suffer from chills or shivers - especially with Cockpit USA's extensive shearling flight jacket collection! Among our favorites is the 100 Mission B-3 Jacket. Crafted with the greatest accuracy to a combat worn garment that has seen at least 100 missions over enemy territory, this B-3 jacket cannot be distinguished from one over 60 years old in age! Featuring a body of American shearling full fur sheepskin specially treated to give the look and feel of an aged and authentic garment, this jacket resembles a true piece of history. Fine tuned in all its features, it boasts a single horsehide front patch pocket, horsehide covered reinforced sleeves with original Air Force shoulder decal and shoulder tabs on which officers rank may be attached. Vintage labeling, heavy latigo aged leather belting straps on each side of the waist and heavy belting straps around the snap down shearling collar (another original feature) makes this a classic must have.
