Dubbed “The Uniform for the Superjet Era,” and created for the new wide-body jet service, this 1971 Pan American uniform marked a new direction in Pan Am’s approach to fashion. Designed by Frank Smith (1927–2007), chief designer at career wear manufacturer Evan-Picone, this uniform was meant to be “a functional and fashionable wardrobe that could be worn in all seasons, and of such quality that it would enhance the Pan Am image.” Image: Pan American World Airways, stewardesses and Boeing 747-100, c. 1971. Gift of the Pan Am Association. 2000.058.0503.009
