The history of the Flight Jacket has had a long and colorful history from it’s inception during the early 1900’s. During World War I, when pilots flew in open cockpits, they were quick to wear whatever they could find to keep them warm. In 1917, The US Army established the Aviation Clothing Board and began distributing heavy duty leather flight bomber jackets, thus the American Flight Bomber Jacket was born.
Leslie Irvin first designed and manufactured the Classic Sheepskin Flying Jacket. In 1926 he set up the manufacturing company in the United Kingdom and became the main supplier of flight jackets for the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. However, the demand for the jackets was so great during that period that he engaged sub-contractors and that explains why there are so many variations in these jackets during that period.
