The one and only black flight jacket I own is a BR William Gibson G-1 in black buffalo. I never was a big fan of black clothing but when Charles at HPA told me it would go very well with a cashmere sweater, it was a shoe in. Haven't got the cashmere sweater yet, still paying for the jacket. Got to say this black B-3, if the term B-3 is still valid in this case, looks very up town. Everything in perspective of course.
