THE GREAT QATSPY® TOP ACE COLLECTION– Featuring the Natural Authentic Leather Flight Jacket Worn by Our U.S. Pilots & Elite Airborne Units

THE GREAT QATSPY® TOP ACE Collection is a simple, natural look and style, what some might refer to as a George Strait or Ernest Hemingway look. This look consist of basic leather boots, 100% Cotton blue jeans, button-down Oxford Shirt, and a Top Ace Bomber Leather Jacket, either an A-2 or G-1. Both of these gentlemen, George Strait and Ernest Hemingway, are naturist similar to that of Henry David Thoreau who stressed natural approach to life.

I’m shown here in my George Strait/Ernest Hemingway TOP ACE style Look at the Opryland Hotel meeting with clients in Nashville, TN. Even at my age of 65, you can still wear blue jeans, starch button-down Oxford Shirt and the THE GREAT QATSPY® TOP ACE A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that we supply to the U.S. Military.

You can never be out of place with this natural look and style that travels as well as it retains its shape and its classic style that goes anywhere, do anything, outfit for almost any and all occasion. This TOP ACE Style can hold up against the elements without the need of dry cleaning; just the basic wash and wear on the fly care. I even wear my Leather Flight Jacket while I’m riding my INDIAN Motorcycle or flying.

I ride my INDIAN Motorcycle to and from the hangar wearing my TOP ACE A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that is as durable as it is stylish that has that natural look. In the background is the P-51 Mustang this is like the one that Tom Cruise flew in the TOP GUN: Maverick Movie and that was in Lady Gaga’s video soundtrack Hold My Hand that did a flyover.


If you are a guy or gal that likes the outdoor & natural look and feel; but don’t like suits or the semi-formal wear, the TOP ACE Collection Style is your look for business or for leisure wear. You can go from the office or shop to a tailgate for those fall football games and fit the occasion perfectly without having to change clothes.


My personal TOP ACE Style

Taken at Vaught Hemingway Stadium on September 29, 2022 night before Ole Miss played host to Kentucky on Saturday, October 01. 2022. We are wearing our TOP ACE Collection Authentic A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that we supply to the U.S. Military.

More times than not while on business, I often don’t know the situation that I will be meeting my clients and must cover the broad spectrum situations. The proper attire is essential and I must have the ability to be like a camellia, and adapt to the situation. The only exception to my TOP ACE Style is having to opt for Chino khakis that have their roots back in World War II. I have a tie that I carry folded up in the front right patch pocket of my Jacket that I can tie with a half-Windsor knot when needed.

Fashion Magazine Articles Leaning Toward that Natural Look

Even as far back as the early 80’s, I was reading articles from popular fashion magazines that were pointing toward the new natural look and style consisting of cowboy boots, blue jeans or Chino khakis, button-down oxford shirt and leather jacket look. For that Fail Safe measure I starch my blue jeans and oxford shirts allowing them to look crisp and sharp longer.

The George Strait or Ernest Hemingway style and look gives me the ability to be a camellia to match my surroundings as needed while traveling. Traveling light is due to luggage restrictions on airlines in the current situation. Traveling light has a huge benefit as well, making it easy to stowaway your carry-on under the seat. No baggage to check and get lost in transit, a carry-on is very convenient to travel with, especially not having to take a sports blazer jacket and another jacket for the cool fall days and nights.

Keep It Simple is My Personal Travels Requirements

My travels take me on the open road, as well as, in the open skies where travel can take a tow on your attire trying to keep that sharp image look that is critical. The TOP ACE Collection is a great way to represent your business to clients and/or friends. If The TOP ACE Collection can take what I have to encounter traveling on the open road or in the open skies, The TOP ACE Collection will meet your expectations as well.■
