We’re no pilots, but we’re also not above a little light co-opting when the moment calls for it.
This hand-sewn pilot’s cap comes from Bentley with a design that’s straight from the 20’s. It might be a bit more costume-y than our usual objects of desire, and we’re not sure we’d drop $200 on something that’s almost impossible to wear outside of a cockpit.
But if you’re looking for something to wear to your pilots exam, this is it.
You can pick up a vintage Bentley that once belonged to Sean Connery, the greatest Bond of all, at Bonhams' auto auction as part of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiast's Club's annual rally this weekend for a relative pittance. The beautiful 1961 S2 saloon, finished in two-tone Tudor Grey / Shell Grey with a contrasting red leather interior, is estimated at only £12,000 - £15,000, or about $24,000 - $30,000, a fraction of what a new, less distinguished model *sans* pedigree will cost you.
