When I think about the origins of this jacket I envision pilots wrapped in their bombers confined to very small and rugged spaces encountering harsh conditions. However, when I received my jacket it arrived in a completely different way. For starters, it came with a hand written note that was just as personal as the bomber's finishing touches, which stated my mission: To wear with love and share it #TheArrivalsNYC. Folded perfectly in its beautifully wrapped orange box keeping safe from the elements, it looked just as perfect on as it did in its package.
Although the design and aesthetic of this piece is modern with sharp angles replacing the rugged and rounded feel of old bombers, it stays true to the garment of choice for pilots...but The Arrivals definitely take it to newer heights for the modern day fly girl:)
