The Phantom Collection, our collaboration with designer Jon Contino, was inspired by the iconic bomber squadrons of WWII that bore names like the Red Devils, Thunderbirds and Bomber Barons. Despite the inherent danger and grimness of the task at hand, these squads brought a spark of charisma and wit to their assignments with intimidating nicknames and colorful, vivid iconography. Jon's "Phantom Squadron" is meant to evoke a creeping dread in the enemy. Once you hear the dull drone of engines in the distance, it's already too late; The Phantom has struck when you least expected it. Throughout this collection, you will find Jon's hand-drawn designs and lettering featured on each piece, visually telling the story of the famed and feared Phantoms.
Though they were created by the British Military in the late 19th century to combat the stifling heat suffered by soldiers stationed in Bermuda, the US Military has several iconic styles of standard-issue shorts. Our Phantom shorts were inspired by the classic Infantry Utility shorts, but feature a shorter inseam and more modern fit. We've also done away with the cargo pockets and inside drawstrings, thus losing some functionality, but gaining untold volumes of style. Just like the Flight Pants, the Phantom shorts feature pocket linings illustrated by Jon Contino.
