Avirex Men's Coats and Jackets
Avirex military and brown leather fashion jackets are available in any size. Avirex items may also fall under the brand's Cockpit USA label. Avirex has a history of being a preferred supplier for several military branches in the USA, and vintage styles were once a provider to the U.S. Air Force.What is the difference between a bomber and tanker jacket?
Both styles of Avirex brand jackets are based on wartime designs for the military, which often reflect World War II styles. These items have evolved into jackets strictly meant for fashion, such as brown leather jackets or athletic team jackets. The bomber, in particular, is the basis for many varsity jackets. The vintage leather or otherwise more signature Avirex style jackets in the bomber category will instead be thicker and heavier than a varsity bomber and will often be fur-lined, with the fur exposed outside of the leather near the collar of the jacket.
A tanker jacket, on the other hand, may resemble a lighter bomber jacket with less lining and may or may not be made of leather. The jacket pockets of a bomber are often more distinctive-looking than the basic jacket pockets seen on a tanker jacket, especially in vintage leathers. The jacket pockets on a classic bomber are usually much larger, with external pockets set straight on the front of the jacket, and are likely to have flaps over the tops of the pockets. Tanker jackets will not typically have flaps over the tops of the pockets.
Classic bomber jackets usually come in dark brown leather. Tanker jackets come in a wider variety of colors but are more likely to favor military colors than the brighter colors of varsity jackets.What sizes are available for Avirex leather jackets?
Avirex leather jackets come in all common sizes, ranging from XS to 6XL.What kind of care does a leather jacket need?
Although a leather coat from Avirex should not need ongoing maintenance, a basic leather treatment once or twice a year can help a leather coat look new for generations. If you choose to wear a vintage Avirex, leather treatments can keep it supple and flexible. This is often done seasonally, either right before the cold weather season or just as you're putting them away in the spring.What linings do Avirex coats have?
Avirex coats can be lined with a number of different lining choices. These include:
- Real and faux fur
