Inspired by pieces from his personal collection of original military clothing, which numbers over 3000 rare pieces, the the Aircraft jacket, like everything in Nigel Cabourn's Authentic collection is constructed with particular reverence to authentic details. A Cabourn classic, it is made from cotton cloth coated in refined oil - a traditional weatherproofing technique developed for the British fishermen. Nigel has been working with this fabric since 1979 due to its quality and durability, and has developed the Aircraft jacket into something truly special. The jacket is closed with a military-spec RiRi zip, covered with a storm flap which fastens with rubber-backed metal pop studs. For fairer weather, the hood may be rolled away and secured with a flap at the rear of the collar.
