In 1954, actress Marilyn Monroe traveled in Korea to entertain American Troops. She performed a surprise show titled “Anything Goes” to audiences which totaled over 100,000 home-sick troops in the course of 4 days.
Captured wearing an oversized men’s B-15 WWII flight jacket, Monroe was quoted saying “Was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I never felt like a star before in my heart. It was so wonderful to look down and see a fellow smiling at me” and the rest is history.
A fashionable take on an iconic WWII flight jacket, our Women’s B-15 nylon flight satin jacket is a contemporary version of the cotton flight jacket that replaced the leather A-2 as standard issue for aircrew and pilots after 1943. We have tailored it for women and added a removable collar for functionality and style.
Shown above, our tribute jacket to the iconic “Anything Goes” Marilyn Monroe tour is photographed on Cockpit USA's Pilot Ambassador, Annie. Now available to order on our website or link here. For more cinematic Hollywood styles, read our "Best Costume" blog here
