  • Cockpit USA Returns to New York Men's Fashion Week

    New York Men's Day/ Fashion Week Fall/Winter Presentation

    Kicking off NYFW, Cockpit USA released a hand-selected capsule of their upcoming F/W 2019 collection at the CFDA approved New York Men's Day. Located at 55 Water St. in downtown New York. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come from such a wonderful event celebrating the creativity of some of the biggest names in fashion.

    The Cockpit USA Fall/Winter presentation showcased an avant-garde take on the brand's most iconic military design: a traditional N3B Long Parka style in a warm "ranch" russet sheepskin and a striking leatherized sheepskin flight suit,  both within the company's traditional DNA.

     

    A hybrid take on a historical tanker jacket, in heavy, motorcycle cowhide leather boasting fireman's clasps hardware closures. Other standout pieces included a wax coated waterproof parka in stark glacial white and a new take on the military nylon N2B short leather hooded bomber jacket in slick heavy-duty goatskin trimmed coyote fur to ward off the show.

     

    Since 1975, Cockpit USA continues to take pride in preserving American History by telling stories through the design of their garments, honoring those who have, and continue to fight for our country. Cockpit USA outfitted their F/W 2019 Collection items on servicemen of the US Military both active and off duty.

  • Stories of the Jacket: Type 440 USN. 1930’s Navy Fighter Pilot Jacket

    A true relic of the 1930s, the Cockpit USA United States Navy fighter pilot jacket is an example of the design innovations of yesteryear. Although closed cockpit flight was fast becoming common in the 30s, pilots were still required to leave the canopies of their planes open during take-off and landing, to ensure an easy getaway or removal by deck crews in the event of an emergency. This Type 440 jacket was designed to provide the comfort, protection and ease of movement needed during such critical and potentially fatal moments. Crafted from 100% government specified goatskin and decked out with unique USN specified diamond shaped, reinforcement elbow patches, the jacket features concealed side entry pockets, an interior chest pocket and adjustable buttoned cuffs with zipper sleeve closures. Lined with a smooth nylon material and finished with a straight cut leather hem, the 1930s Type 440 USN pilot jacket is a striking jacket perfectly suited for formal occasions. Proudly made in the USA by Cockpit USA!
