Playing With The Boys…The Flight Jacket Of Dreams

Zara Aviator Jacket

Oh, the aviator jacket. I defy you to look at this iconic garment and not have the words “Tom Cruise” immediately jump to mind! I admit I’ve played up to the image with the shades, but really? who doesn’t want a bit of flyboy action in their winter wardrobe? A really great flight jacket has been on my wishlist for the past few seasons but so far nothing had really hit the spot – the Acne Aviator Jacket of dreams came damn close mind you – a snip at a mere £2100 – needless to say it has never migrated from wish list to shopping basket! As usual, Zara has come up trumps with this – I would say pretty much perfect – flight jacket. I’m usually a stickler for fabrics to be the real deal so the fact that this is both faux leather and faux sheepskin would under normal circumstances have me curling my lip but the quality and feel of the jacket are amazing! The classic sheepskin flying jacket was invented in the mid-twenties to meet the demands of both pilots and aircrew who, in open cockpits with altitudes soaring, were subjected to ever lower temperatures! Well, it can definitely get a little nippy here in the Scottish borders and this jacket is so super snuggly and easy to throw on over jeans and a tee – something I really felt was missing from my winter wardrobe. The jacket comes in the classic black/sheepskin combo or for a more modern twist theres burgundy, all black and khaki options – all under a hundred quid! I couldn’t style this any other way than full on ‘Maverick’ mode..ripped jeans, grey tee, black boots and the ubiquitous Ray Bans complete the look! Will you be buying into the flyboy trend this season?
