Flight Satin Black
Flight Satin Olive
(Supersoft Quilt: 100% Nylon Flight Satin Shell with Rip-stop Nylon Lining)
Crafted in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
U.S. Air Force flight jacket developed in the mid-50’s has become a fashion icon throughout the major fashion cities recently. Monitaly takes our own path to refine the U.S. Air Force flight jacket by keeping a taste of the original details yet twisting fit and fabrication. Fit has been re-evaluated to make it modern silhouette. It is not a boxy silhouette like the original jacket, but instead it has achieved a longer length, better body shape and contoured sleeve. Some of the key details include a lower pocket with angled snap flap, zig-zag stitching detail on wind flap under the front zipper, and two internal pockets which are the original detail. Each zipper pull tab is equipped with tear-drop-shaped zipper pull made out of American cow leather and it’s attached with bar-tuck. A snap at the top left of the center zipper is for secure closure of wind flap. 100% wool ribbing for collar, cuff and waistband is used to keep you warm. Inside of the jacket is fully lined with rip-stop nylon.
Filled with seven ounces of virgin siliconized polyester, Supersoft Quilt used on outer shell mimics the feel of down but gives you the benefits of a synthetic insulation and less-bulky feeling. Unlike down which becomes heavy when damp, this super soft insulation remains light in weight even when a bit wet. Supersoft Quilt helps keep you warm in conditions where doing a little activity such as walking in a city. This quilt is made with 100% nylon flight satin, and the quilt stitching pattern is called “Dumbbell”, which detail is often seen on a classic military jacket lining. As its name indicates, the flight satin fabric is originally used for flight jackets in military. This fabric is very tough and windproof, yet it has a nice silky, shinny finish. It is also developed to have a high water repellent rating.
