Cockpit USA Returns to New York Men's Fashion Week
Kicking off NYFW, Cockpit USA released a hand-selected capsule of their upcoming F/W 2019 collection at the CFDA approved New York Men's Day. Located at 55 Water St. in downtown New York. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come from such a wonderful event celebrating the creativity of some of the biggest names in fashion. The Cockpit USA Fall/Winter presentation showcased an avant-garde take on the brand's most iconic military design: a traditional N3B Long Parka style in a warm "ranch" russet sheepskin and a striking leatherized sheepskin flight suit, both within the company's traditional DNA. A hybrid take on a historical tanker jacket, in heavy, motorcycle cowhide leather boasting fireman's clasps hardware closures. Other standout pieces included a wax coated waterproof parka in stark glacial white and a new take on the military nylon N2B short leather hooded bomber jacket in slick heavy-duty goatskin trimmed coyote fur to ward off the show. Since 1975, Cockpit USA continues to take pride in preserving American History by telling stories through the design of their garments, honoring those who have, and continue to fight for our country. Cockpit USA outfitted their F/W 2019 Collection items on servicemen of the US Military both active and off duty.
