Experimental Flight

Fighter Pilots are seen in front of a U.S. Convair B-58 Hustler, showcasing Cubist Dragon nose art. Standard issue flight uniforms serve as inspiration for Maharishi’s Autumn Winter 2022 collection.

Flight uniforms by the USAF were introduced in order to aid access for pilots whilst sat compressed within cockpits. Through ergonomically placed zip pockets, pilots would have had full access to cargo stowed during flight, and held secure in the event of ejection.

Internal carry straps allow experimental flight jackets to be worn over the shoulders and secure pocket arrangements are fit for multi-situational use when travelling or commuting.
