Here's a riff on Aviator jackets (worn by our Spitfire ace Farrier) from the issue's Threads Column by Christina Newland.
'During the World War Two, the Royal Air Force’s casualty rate was higher than for any other section of Britain’s armed forces – meaning that their uniforms became a clear incarnation of bravery.
The military-issue jacket Niven wears in [A Matter of Life and Death, classic 1946 film set during WWII] is known as the B3 Shearling, or simply the ‘Sheepskin Flying Jacket’. It was designed by an Englishman named Leslie Irvin, whose company manufactured and supplied the RAF with the jacket throughout the War. It soon became iconic – a symbol for the devil-may-care bravery of the flyboys fighting off the Luftwaffe. Accordingly, the B3 jacket appeared onscreen in countless Allied propaganda films, from James Stewart’s 1942 recruitment film Winning Your Wings to William Wyler’s famous 1944 documentary Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress. But the B3 was more than a symbol – it was a necessity. At freezing high altitudes in poorly-insulated cockpits, pilots needed heavy leather and sheepskin to keep warm.'
