Cockpit USA Introduces Fall 2014 Sweater Jackets

February 18, 2014 (NYC) - Cockpit USA introduces for Fall 2014 its new sweater jackets. For over thirty years Cockpit USA has demonstrated an unsurpassed commitment to excellence in style, creativity, and quality when it comes to designing fashionable men's lifestyle wear, and their new line of sweater/leather outerwear continues in the same vein. Made of the finest materials and meticulous construction, the jackets are not only great to look at they are also assembled to last.

The company has taken several of the most iconic military coats the A-2, G-1, B-3, MA-1 and the Navy Peacoat and reconstructed them into attractive endurable woolen sweaters with strategically placed calfskin leather sleeves and accents. The designs are consistent with the company's history and commitment to demonstrating the best of military styles. In addition, to their new sweater coat the brand also carriers another military inspired coat the N3B Parka and it too has leather placed in intricate place throughout the coat.


About Cockpit USA:

Cockpit USA is a brand built on the firm foundations of an affinity for leather, aviation and an all American heritage. With a story that begins in the skies… It was in the early 70s when President and founder of Cockpit USA Jeff Clyman was taking flight in WWII aircrafts sporting his father’s Army Air Corps aviator jacket, when he was bombarded by crowds of people wanting to know where they could get their hands on one too.

Based in New York City and originally started in 1975 under the corporate name Avirex Ltd, Cockpit USA has a vibrant history. As a current contractor to the U.S. Government, Cockpit USA has supplied the USA government with various products including since 1990 the A-2 leather pilot jacket. Cockpit USA has also supplied various foreign governments with their own version of the A-2 pilots’ jackets as well as Navy jackets for certain USA submarine units and international Navies.

Cockpit USA is a name synonymous with authenticity and a sense of strong American legacy. A lifestyle that has been adopted by iconic celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone, (Rocky III wearing the company’s B-3 shearling jacket), Governor Arnold Schwartznegger, Bruce Willis, Nicholas Cage, Steven Spielberg, Steve McQueen, Tom Selleck, Jerry Seinfeld, Lenard Nemoy, Dan Akroyd, PDiddy, Hugh Jackman, Richard Simmons, Sharon Stone, Christina Aguilera, President Bush and President Obama and just recently Beyonce!

The contemporary collection, Civilian Pilot Training, is a capsule under Cockpit USA specializing in leather and textile outerwear, knitwear and shirting. With each piece being a translation of the company's vast treasure trove archive of genuine historic military finds, styles are recreated with expert craftsmanship and commitment to quality. A true salute to garments of times past and the heroes who have worn them, Cockpit USA maintains a signature standard of execution; manufacturing 80% of products at home in the U.S. using only leathers of the highest grade, heavy duty hard ware with inspiration drawn from military design.
