We have created this unique upstyled look using off-cuts of vintage textiles patched on to a vintage flightsuit. This army surplus flightsuit looks like it was for an army cadet or for training purposes rather than true army use as it's quite lightweight. It does still have all of the authentic and original detailing like the multiple zippered pockets and the double ended zipper on the front for 'convenience'!
We removed the black velcro patches on the front and shoulders where military badges would have been attached and replaced them with patches cut from vintage textiles, replicating the exact shapes to replace the original patches. We reflected this detailing with the large scale toile back pocket and some scattered patches which have been applied to cover some wear and tear and some green paint smudges (perhaps this made a great decorating outfit at some point!) which were across the seat and on the back of the legs.
There are still a few very small paint mark visible but we think that the eye is far more drawn to the patterned pocket and patches for this to be that obvious. It's all part of this flightsuit's unique character.
