Nice. My mum had a shopping bag similar to that back in the '60's.
Hi Dear Mr. TiesA new product from FiveStar:

Shawn made these in collaboration with our own @Thomas Koehle .
It's made in super nice and soft leather, red lining (you could get it lined in A-2 shades as well, of course), Talon zipper and sturdy canvas tape. Inside pouches for mobile or sunglasses.
The label is taken after original bags, and I personally think that Shawn's guys have made a terrific job:

Width is roughly 15.8 inches, so my laptop fits in nicely, with no "dangling around".
And yes, it is far from original canvas or nylon helmet bags, but a rather cool accessory to my daily mixture of flight jacket, denim and boots.
Keep the cool stuff coming, @Shawn Ali !
By the way, I decided to make a kind of semi-official FiveStar "squadron" patch, taking the 310th Troop Carrier and modifying it:
Five stars, a crescent moon, with center star and moon representing the flag of Shawn's home country Pakistan. The caricatured pilot wears an A-2, the large guy a B-10 and the one in the back a B-3... Should go perfectly with the bag!
