Oderē | In the lining

Mode fascinē. Tādas bija manas sajūtas, kad izlasīju rakstu par MA-1 bomber jakām. Šāda stila jakas veikalos grozās jau vairākus gadus, bet pēdējā laikā ievēroju atkārtotu iezīmi - oranžo oderi. Izrādās šīm jakām ir pašām sava vēsture. Speciāli veidotas 1950to gadu modernākām lidmašīnām un to pilotiem, oranžā odere domāta glābšanas funkcijai - ja notiek negadījums, pilots jaku varētu uzvilkt otrādāk un viņu varētu vieglāk atrast.
Šis man atgādina, cik forši ir nēsāt lietas, kurām ir savs stāsts. Tagad ir sajūta, ka piederu kādam izbijušu pilotu klubam. Jāpiebilst, šī arī bija liktenīga satikšanās second hand veikalā, es nemāku to izskaidrot.

Fashion is fascinating. Those were my thoughts when I read an article about MA-1 flight jackets. Bomber jackets have been around for years now, but recently I noticed recurrent feature - the orange lining. Turns out these jackets have their own history. Specially designed in 1950s for more modern planes and their pilots , orange lining had rescuing function - in case of an accident, pilot could reverse the jacket and could be found more easily.
This reminds me of how cool it is to wear things with their own stories. Now I have a feeling I belong to a former pilots club or something. It should be noted, that this is another destined meeting in a second hand store, I don't know how to explain.
