    I think we had a thread similar to this a few years ago, and having received the below I thought I’d start one for this year…

    Starting today, fans of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can travel comfortably and in style with the limited edition Jet Legs tracksuit trousers. Jet Legs are available through KLM’s Instagram Channel and web shop.

    When KLM introduced Jet Legs, it commissioned a study to see what 1,100 Dutch, German, British, and Norwegian passengers prefer to wear when travelling. More than half (54%) put comfort first when they fly – whether on holiday or for business trips.

    However, they did not consider tracksuit trousers to be appropriate travel wear. Nearly 50% of the respondents did not find the idea of travelling in sportswear attractive. But if tracksuit trousers could be turned into a fashion statement, 44% would be willing to wear them.

    So KLM asked four fashion professionals in the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, and the UK to explore fashion-forward styling with Jet Legs.

    Jet Legs are available in a limited edition of 5,000 on the Instagram Channel and the KLM web shop. The comfortable, blue tracksuit trousers are made of recycled polyester and elastane, and the packaging is made of recycled plastic.

    Thanks for the Friday chuckle Mark !!

    And , here’s a warning, if you’re in that 44% and you see me, please stay away

    This is a classic example where you really need to understand the difference between what is fashionable and what is stylish before you press that buy button! 😉

    I know which camp I prefer to be in…. “and it ‘aint’ tracky bottoms” 😀

    Or perhaps a 2020 calendar celebrating 80 years of Dublin airport?…

    How about a tag upcycled from retired aircraft?

    Planetags.com has a range of helicopter, commercial, vintage and commemorative tags. They’re based just east of LAX. Website includes other items such as mirrors made from window panels.

    I wasn’t impressed with the tracky bottoms either!!

    I had a tag made from a piece of an old VS plane.

    On a LATAM flight from MDE-BOG on Saturday someone in LATAM baggage handling decided they liked the look of it, took the time to unscrew the metal chain and nicked it.

    Moral of the story: only use the tags for handluggage!
