If you or someone you love absolutely loves the 1986 movie Top Gun, and we mean REALLY loves the movie, Top Gun, then you’ve got to head over to online shopping site, Hammacher Schlemmer, and check out the recently added, Authentic Top Gun Jacket!
If you enjoy the SkyMall catalog in the back seats of airplanes, then it’s worth your time to check out Hammacher Schlemmer, America’s longest running catalog for Unique Gifts, Gadgets, Electronics, and More. And one of those “mores” now happens to be a leather bomber jacket, meticulously reproduced with all of the details of the jacket worn by Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the iconic movie, Top Gun.
And the retail price? Hold onto your flight-stick, ONLY, $849.95 (and this is why we emphasized you must REALLY Love Top Gun)!
The jacket has all 17 patches found on the original, including those honoring the USS William H. Standley, the USS Galveston CLG 3, and other destroyers for their support during naval aviation strikes. It is made from vegetable tanned goatskin that is hand-cut, sewn, and gently aged to create subtle creases and a warm patina that evokes a classic, battle-tested jacket. The jacket has the iconic mouton collar and small details such as the Navy anchor pin on one of the front pockets and the wool and nylon cuffs and waistband that were hallmarks of Maverick’s coat. With a satin smooth lining, zippered front with a full wind flap, and vented underarm gussets. And here’s the best part, it has a Lifetime Guarantee!
With only 6 more Friday’s until Christmas, there is no time like the “present” (see what we did there?) to start your holiday shopping. Why not start with this!
