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.
Enlist your sense of style with Cockpit USA's military-inspired leather jackets and merchant-marine henleys. This retro-cool brand also makes plaid flannels, wool-cotton field coats and cotton button-downs with epaulets.
