What does a typical pilot wear? As a child, when I pictured aviation enthusiasts, bomber jackets and aviator sunglasses came to mind. As I have gotten older, I am able to reflect my personal style, and my interests embrace them. Those bomber jackets and sunglasses are more than just symbols to me, they are aspects of my style that I am able to add in to further explain who I am. Then, I stumbled upon Charlie Air Aviation Apparel, my style inspiration was forever changed.
Charlie Air does the difficult and unique job of creating functional yet stylish clothing for aviation enthusiasts. I was awestruck by the amazing styles and ideas that the brand came up with! I wanted to take aviation apparel a step further, it is a huge aspect of who I am. I teamed up with Charlie Air and took the challenge of wearing my aviation apparel here on the streets of Manhattan. Whether I was walking into a rural town airport, or walking the streets of Chelsea, New York, my outfit got numerous compliments!
Pictured I am wearing the “first solo” tee. Don’t we all love that blissful feeling of taking off all by ourselves for the first time? I think the gal on the back of my tee shirt captured my reaction perfectly.
Each of the designs seemed to tell a story. I made that story mine by styling the apparel to fit my personal style. One of my favorite ideas is to personalize my bomber jacket to make it more my own. I often add patches or pins that I collect from airshows. I cannot wait to see all the brand has in store to transform the world of aviation.
