I shy away from replica, military style jackets - especially those with excess straps, buttons and/or trim. For civilian use, these features, though eye appealing, interfere with the simple, weather repelling, on-off demands of my daily commute. As it were, the EG Aviator jacket pares the original military style down to its essential features.
My two favorite jacket features are the corduroy lined hand warmer pockets (not pictured!) and the knit cuffs trimmed in wool.Instead of a full storm flap, the FWK EG jacket comes with a snap front, semi storm flap. Here, I love the visual bling of these three snaps but the sturdy, two way zipper has a tendency to catch on the flap when I zip up the jacket.
