DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A new product line is highlighting the Wright Brothers’ accomplishments in a unique way.

Wright Brothers Worldwide is launching an aviation themed product line.

It features flight and bomber jackets, aviator sunglasses and travel bags with the Wright Brothers logo.

The company also plans to add watches, journals and other items to the line.

All of the products are made here in the United States.

“This is a name, a historical brand and historical name that’s untarnished in history and we got to keep it that way. So we’ve created a line of very, very high end very top class of products that meet the expectations of a family in terms of the dignity of the name,” said Dave Lightle, Wright Brothers Worldwide.

A portion of the royalties go to the Wright Brothers Family Foundation here in Dayton to help maintain Hawthorne Hill.

The clothing rollout is wrapped around the launch of the brand’s online store slated to go live May 25.
