Originally, the aviator jacket was a piece of military uniform associated with the pilots of the Second World War, first made of leather, then cotton, and then nylon. The main referenced models of aviator jackets were notably worn by American bombardier pilots. Different types of jackets subsequently appeared, the A2 model being the most famous, created in 1931 for members of the United States Army Air Corps, and made popular after the war by Hollywood actors and pin-ups.
Eight major steps are required to turn wool flock into wool cloth. After the traditional washing of the wool in order to maintain the natural resistance of the fibre, it is put outside to dry, combed, carded and then weaved. Solid, resistant, silky and insulating, wool cloth is a winter essential.
The word “flannel” is said to stem from the Welsh term for “wool”. Although flannel was originally entirely made of wool, it is now made up of cotton. Soft to the touch, the fibres are napped, scratched, and then raised to give the fabric that soft feel. Often used for winter coats, shirts and hats, flannel renders garments more waterproof.

A resident of the 13th arrondissement, on the dalle des Olympiades, the calligrapher and martial arts master is especially known for his traditional Chinese wrestling exploits.
