    I like the McQueen photo, well I like all the pics posted so far actually. I have read that Kevin Costner is a big fan of flight jackets and that is why he wears them in several of his movies.

    There can't be many examples of movie stars wearing their own clothes in movies. Excellent stuff!:D

    And I know it's not strictly a flight jacket, but here is Dirk Bogarde in Hunted in a nice leather jacket that resembles a Lewis lumber jacket. In fact, it is almost identical.
