Celebrating the rugged life of the cargo pilot and the iconic propliners these heroes fly.
What defines legend? Where does a story begin?
PME Legend is borne of cargo pilots with their classic planes, pilots who exist on the fringe… you can feel the raw sense of adventure, almost smell the engine oil... this is the right stuff, an absolutely authentic ‘no sweat’ attitude. Free as condors they fly over the mountains into the jungle and back, living pure freedom unlimited.
PME Legend’s journey has, for more than fifteen years, been a history entwined with the legendary exploits of the last frontier of cargo pilots and their incredible flying machines. The rugged, hardwearing materials that form the essential work wear for these cowboys of the sky are echoed in the materials used and the standard of design present in PME Legend’s clothing range.
Tested daily by cargo pilots worldwide.
Flying high in cold altitudes or hauling crates on the ground, tough but comfortable clothing is the only choice. The sheepskin jacket was designed from scratch to conserve body heat and provide comfort on long flights. These traditional leather jackets epitomize quality craftsmanship and integrity of design.
From the selection of specific leather qualities to the execution of every detail. The arms of the flying jacket were designed with extra stiffness to give the pilots arms greater stability when piloting their machines and take the strain on long flights, giving them some ‘rest’.
It’s not just the flying jacket that makes up the unofficial ‘uniform’ of the cargo pilot. Cargo pants are the only choice for these unconditional airmen. The tough, hardwearing rugged wear won’t let them down.
Wherever they are and whatever they’re lifting. Pockets where they need them, none where they don’t, uncompromising but comfortable can only mean PME Legend Cargo Pants.
A cargo pilot has few essentials; they travel light and they travel easy, wearing only tough but comfortable clothing that works for them in the extremes of their environment. With the flying jacket and cargo pants, no pilot is without his jeans. Only the highest quality denims are used, each pair of jeans is hand finished with craftsmanship.
Because of this special workmanship no two are the same. They’re personalized, no mass production. The vintage inspired brushed hardwear, the heavy gauge stitches, the real leather labels & the lockerloop inside, built up to the distinctive, yet authentic look of PME Legend Jeans
Reportedly first appearing in the 1600’s, it was the Italian sailors of Genoa who gave birth to the term ‘jeans’. The term referred to the sailors themselves, known as ‘Genes’, but was inspired by the hard working material they used to make their clothes. Some 400 years later pilots choose jeans as their essential wear for their unforgiving environment; like the sailors before them inspired by the tough, hard wearing rugged materials.
