Hi, I thought I'd share this Portuguese military leather jacket. This model has been authorized wear by army officers since at least the 1970s and probably earlier. It's a simple, distinctive design that is not obviously derivative, in my opinion. The interesting thing is that it isn't a flight jacket at all. The Portuguese flight jackets look similar to an A-2 but with a knit collar -- a little cheesy, in my opinion. And the Portuguese army has recently introduced a new model leather jacket, but it too looks too much like a civilianized A-2. This model, however, is unmistakably military, with clean, solid lines, and a classic look.
