Original flying jackets are collectors' items. They are hard to find, expensive to buy, and in most cases, due to their age, far too delicate to wear. They are without doubt investments, and for these reasons are no longer practical in use. So, for those of us who wish to be able to wear such a garment, these reproductions offer that fulfilment. Eastman have been producing these fine garments for many years, and in that time they have gained a reputation for excellence. This is because all the jackets are made right here in the U.K., under one roof, by skilled craftsmen and women.This is what makes the Eastman collection so special, you are not going to find these jackets in abundance anywhere. So if you finally end up owning one, you will have something to be truly proud of.
