As its name suggests, Cockpit USA produces classic all-American clothing and accessories inspired by aviation culture and history. Founded in 1975 by historian, collector, and American Airpower Museum founder Jeff Clyman, this New York-based label designs everything from plaid men’s shorts to kids’ satin jackets to luxe shearling flight jackets for female civilians. High-quality materials, comfortable fits, roomy pockets and other details add extra authenticity to Cockpit’s collection. Cockpit’s wares are so authentic, in fact, that the U.S. Air Force commissions the company to design its A-2 leather pilot jackets.
Here you'll find a fair share of jersey knit polos from three great American brands as well as a broad range of durable gear. L.A.-based Idol Radec offers short-sleeved dress shirts — like a poplin hiddenbutton Jacob shirt with straight hem — meant to be worn untucked but still elegantly. Though founded in 1975, Cockpit channels mid-century American styles with modern updates. And Relwen uses old-world weaving and embroidery techniques, durable materials, heavy-gauge knits and authentic military hardware to make long-lasting pieces.
America loves a military man, but even if you aren’t enlisted, Cockpit USA can make any guy look the part. These rugged sheepskin jackets, tough leather bombers and stylish apparel all take inspiration from military classics, with functional detailing and quality materials. Cockpit designs reference pilot apparel from the 1940s through the '60s, but their tailored fits and new fabrics bring their styles into the 21st century.
Plaids, tweeds, work boots, and waxwear abound in this massive, Americana-inspired sale. From US labels (Steven Alan, Red Wing) to overseas brands like Dunderdon and Scotch & Soda who just love the look, you’re sure to find something here to help unleash your inner (urban) lumberjack. Be sure to check out Alexander Olch’s wool neckwear and a particularly theme-appropriate buffalo plaid jacket from Woolrich.
You don't need a special reason to pull together a natty ensemble, but you do need to have the proper shirt. Our massive sale has hundreds of button-downs by the likes of Seize Sur Vingt, Steven Alan, and GANT. So rest assured: You'll be covered no matter what the occasion—or lack thereof.
