Private White VC

Private White V.C.

One of the items that have always excited me was the bomber jacket as worn by the pilots during WWII. I have been into Airforce, pilots, WWII and planes since I was a little boy. Remember even drawing the Pearl harbour attack and Aircraft Carriers. Not surprisingly the moment I discovered jackets and coats made by British brand Private White VC I felt in love with them.

Anyhow, as I mentioned in the beginning of the post I want to present you brand’s wonderful jackets and coats. Private White VC offers many different style which include the famous bomber jacket, duffle coat or pea coat as well as biker jackets or even raincoats. In the RTW it is very important to use high quality fabrics and pay attention to details as this will be primarily spotted by customers. Natural fabrics like wool, cotton or its modified versions like tweed or Ventile are all being used for the best performance and comfort as possible.

What I really like about Private White is that their garments are developed and designed with a deep understanding of history of British Military history making it as stylish as practical. Everything from number of pockets, types of lining, way of weaving or copper details is well thought through and this is their biggest strength. You can get them from Private White VC online store or by visiting their premises in Manchester or London.
