This aviation-inspired fashion and retail line and its loft-like space attract both airplane enthusiasts and European tourists. Upon arrival, shoppers are greeted by the nose of a Beach 18 in the entryway. The Cockpit is best known for its large selection of leather bomber jackets, including fleece-lined, brightly colored, varsity-style and traditional WWII replicas. If you're wondering why photos and memorabilia from Top Gun hang on the walls, you should know that Avirex designed the bomber jackets for the film.
