Product Description

In 1957, the US Air Force Flying Jacket MA-1 was introduced as a direct successor to the modified 1957 B-15D Flying Jacket. True to the early classic, the "BR14965 MA-1 Jacket Slender Long" is made of heavy, water- and wind-repellent nylon twill fabric and is lined with wool fibers. In addition to the exceptionally good workmanship and the specially selected, very original materials, the jacket convinces with a contemporary slim silhouette and cut. As part of Buzz Rickson's x William Gibson collection, it is not made in "Sage Green" like the original, but deep black: The idea for an all-black collection came from a fictional black MA-1 jacket designed by the science-fiction author for his protagonist in his book "Pattern Recognition." Buzz Rickson's brought the never before existed jacket to life, laying the foundation for the unique "Type Black" militaria collaboration.
