It wasn't long after man discovered how to fly, that he started using his new invention as a tool of aggression. The first major conflict involving aircraft was the First World War. It was during this era that the military pilot gained his glamour image.

On the home front, airmen were used extensively by the propaganda merchants, depicting them as dashing knights of the sky. Compared to the trench bound, foot slogging soldier, his life was certainly more exciting, as he roamed at will beyond the constricting front line of his soldier comrades - twisting and turning, diving and climbing, free as a bird!

The fighter pilots who mastered their skill best, soon achieved 'Ace' status. They would become house-hold names like formerday movie stars.
None achieved more fame than the notorious Baron von Richthofen, or 'The Red Baron' as he was to become popularly known. He, and many pilots like him, would commonly be seen wearing 3/4 length double breasted black leather flying coats. They were worn over their regulation uniforms to give extra protection from the elements. These coats were privately purchased by the wearer from normal commercial sources, therefore there is no specific military pattern to which they adhered - they were all slightly different.

Our WWI German Pilots 3/4 length black leather flying coat is most certainly fit for an Ace. Made from a premium, aniline dyed, supple Horsehide, this flying coat absolutely exudes quality! It is lined with an Air Force blue, 100 brushed cotton lining, as are the pockets and is furnished with real horn buttons to front and cuff. The detachable belt is correctly eyeleted for the single prong buckle, which in turn is leather covered and stitched. Its classic and thoughtful design combines sophistication with utility that it is perfectly at home in everyday walks of modern life - a garment of truly exceptional quality!

Available in sizes: 34 - 48.
