    I found out about the Cockpit after Time Out NY pushed it in their latest issue. Its a division of Avirex with more of a military history theme, kind of like Buzz Rickson. Does anyone own a cockpit item? Thoughts? Reflections? It looks pretty good online and in the TONY spread. Prices on the USN Fighter Weapons Jacket are great at $115, as I bought something like it at NDG which cost 2x that price after a 60% discount. http://www.cockpitusa.com/

    nice, they make size 6XL.

    Just fyi, that Nom De Guerre jacket you bought was produced by Toyo Enterprises -- which produces Sugarcane and Buzz Rickson apparel on the exact same machines that they were produced on in the '20s, '30s, '40s, and '50s -- so although it's definitely pricier, it's a very well-made piece.

    I like the stuff in the fashion collection, especially the jackets and shirts. But not too into their online store stuff.
