are these in style? What age range? I found a standard brown jacket with the eggshell collar. Fits perfect, great cut, looks nice. But, is this costume-party-only?

I think it all depends on when and where you planned to wear it. Can look good in certain circumstances.

But I much prefer the vintage looks. The current crop of black leather "aviator" jackets look dreadful.

Scored a charcoal A2 from Avirex in October 1989 and it stillmcomesnoutba few times each year when the mercury dips. Always gets compliments. Like a lot of military inspired clothing (trench coat, blazer) they are timeless classics.

Thnaks, this is vintage style (judging by the movies). I'm targeting work (casual office), and out at night. I am way past my 20's...
