I've begun work on a new project that I'm really excited about, a 1930's aviation outfit. I've always had a fascination with jodhpurs, mainly from seeing them in Star Wars and Indiana Jones, and I think they're rather fabulous. And this will be the perfect outfit to wear at Historic Flight events because 1) it'll be vintage. And 2) because it'll be warm. The majority of airshows I attend are cold and windy, so I usually shy away from wearing vintage because that usually means skirts. Skirts+cold+wind=a disaster. So this is a great solution.
My original inspiration came from this picture of Elinor Smith on Pinterest.
I did a bit more research and found that not only was this a common style for aviation but also for other sports such as horseback riding, golf, hiking, etc. from the 1920's through the 1940's.
