Chocks away and hand me my flying goggles!
Here I am hogging the internet again with something old from my wardrobe.This time it’s an aviator jacket made by an American company called Pall Mall.Has anybody heard of them?
This jacket is 15yearsand5months old,I can be so accurate because I remember buying it when I was pregnant with my daughter.I saw it in a shop in Brighton(again!) and fell for it however although it fitted across my shoulders I couldn’t actually do it up due to prescense of baby! I loved it so much I bought it anyway .luckily once I d recovered my pre baby shape it fitted perfectly.(don’t do this.Its not a good idea!)
It s made of nubuck leather so I don’t wear it in the rain and as it’s very warm I wear it on cold ,crisp winters days.I do tend to look after it but I still wear it every winter and enjoy doing so.
I ve included a photo of the label and I hope you can read what it says as I find it really interesting to know the history behind a style of garment.
Just as an aside ,I m grinning in the photo because my daughter who was taking the photos suddenly decided that she was David Bailey and kept saying things like “work it baby!”I had to delete most of the photos as I was laughing too hard.
