Military-inspired apparel continues to evolve and this includes the varying iterations of the flight jacket. Luxury fashion houses consistently incorporate it into their collections, which are saturated with historical references, homages and reinterpretations. If there’s one drawback to turning to the larger houses, it’s that perhaps they sometimes divert too daringly from its origins. There is no such danger of veering off course with some of the smaller artisans on TheRake.com as many of them who specialise in military outerwear have long-standing, deep and significant connections to some of the most important passages of military history.
