VF Solutions has reported new orders for parkas and leather jackets are through the roof. Sales are particularly brisk to the demographic of junior FOs & SOs flying the Greats and Grands, and all European fliers.

Not to be left out, however, are those turning 65 after Oct 2012--after all, this is their last shot at a (partially) subsidized parka or jacket to impress the (not so) young ladies at the retirement home.

It's the AOC. Lighten up. Who you tryin' to impress; your Captain?

Many of our group could use the help of the OAC! To see individuals (widebodies) trying to make themselves better is not something to belittle. "Lighten up", you say...You need to get off your high horse and think about how the things you say may be very hurtful to others!!

Absolutely. If I can't do it with my flying skills then showing off my guns in a sporty FDX wife beater is the next best thing. I wonder how that will go over in the Paris first class lounge.

Or how about we just continue doing what we want since wearing costumes is pretty stupid to start with. Another waste of money.
