US WINGS®, The Classic Flight Jacket Outfitter for Fashion
The Word in fashion is versatility, as we are trying to combine functionality with fashion, without having to buy additional outfits or having to compromise protection. We always want something that offers the classic formal or casual look, but with the comfort and protection for our busy schedules.
NOTE: My wife wears the Medium A-2 Cape Buffalo Men’s Jacket that she prefers because of the feel.
We like our sports jackets, like the classic blue blazer, but the blazer doesn’t offer the flexibility or durability for traveling and outdoor activities. After Christmas is enjoyed with family and friends, we like to take to the slopes to enjoy the outdoors, but we are having to pack additional winter wear. THE QATSPY® Sport Apparel has linked up with US WINGS® for the perfect outfitter jackets that can go from formal or casual wear to the recreational outdoors, without you having to do additional packing for your trip.
US WINGS® Jacket that Goes from Casual to Formal Wear
I have enjoyed my A-2 Cape Buffalo Flight Jacket for years, either performing flying patrol or going to dinner with friends after I get back to the airport. My A-2 Cape Buffalo Jacket can go from the cockpit of the P-51 or Motorcycle right to a Holiday cocktail dinner with friends, with only a slight wardrobe change in the locker room from a khaki chino shirt with blue jeans into a Button-down Oxford shirt and tie with pressed khaki pants.
Walt Disney World, wanting to re-enact the adventures of Indiana Jones, went in search for an authentic version of the Indy-Style Leather Jacket. But Disney’s required that it withstand the daily production of their Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular. Walt Disney came to US WINGS® for their Indiana Jones Cape Buffalo Leather Jacket.
We supplied Walt Disney with the Indy-Style Cape Buffalo Leather Jacket, shown below. The Cape Buffalo Leather is some of the world’s toughest leather that has the Old-Antique, patina look and comfortable feel we see in the Indiana Jones Movies. This production is seen by thousands each week at the Walt Disney Theme Park, and this is a must-see production at Walt Disney World Theme Park.
The U.S. ARMY Retro Era A-2 Leather Jacket Issue
Starting in April of 2020, the U.S. Army will be issuing to its recruiters the original style WWII A-2 Cowhide Leather Jacket, because of its classic look and style. The U.S. Army is returning to this style of jacket that some of your grandparents or uncles and aunts might have worn during the war, either in the U.S. Army Air Corps or in the 82nd or 101st Airborne. Both pilots (men and female) wore this A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that is making a comeback.
Call me nostalgic, but the late thirties and forty’s provided some of the classic clothing designs that are still popular even today. This was the era when these jackets listed below were developed.
In THE QATSPY® Sports Apparel Online-Store, we carry the following US WINGS® Jackets:
- Retro A-2 U.S. Army Cowhide Leather Flight Jacket
- A-2 Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket
- G-1 Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket
- TOPGUN 2, G-1 Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket
- Indy-Style Cape Buffalo Leather Flight Jacket
- The Classic Motorcycle Cape Buffalo Biker’s Jacket
The CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket
- CWU-45 Standard Nylon Flight Jacket
- TOPGUN CWU-45 Nylon Flight Jacket (with authentic TOPGUN Patches)
NOTE: The original Nylon flight jacket was design at the end of the 40’s, but was updated to the CWU-45P Flight Jacket in the 70’s that a lot of pilots wear today.
The CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jacket made a perfect ski jacket that my wife and I, with a close friend, Miss US WINGS, wore when we recently went to Winter Park, Colorado, at the nice Arapahoe Ski Lodge. We were there giving a presentation to a Veterans group about THE QATSPY® Palmer Golf Technique.
These CWU-45P Nylon Flight Jackets made the perfect cross country ski jacket that attracted a lot of attention on the slopes, due to the TOPGUN Patches, as seen in the TOPGUN 2 Trailer below:
