Buzz Rickson’s Type MA-1 Flight Jacket – 1st Model
€ 604.00 excl VAT
BR14900 / Type MA-1 “ALBERT TURNER & CO., INC.”
Buzz Rickson’s was established in 1993 in Japan. The company produces exact reproductions of vintage US army and air force clothing. An immense amount of research into the context of the clothing is done for each individual garment.
MA-1 is the most popular and longest-lasting flight jacket. The development of the MA-1 started in the early 1950s, but it was based on the B-15 series, which had been the seat of the official flight jacket until then. The B-15 is an improvement and development of the cotton B-10 that appeared in 1943, and has undergone a transformation in response to the rapid technological innovation and development of military aircraft. The MA-1, which was born in this way, was the model that had the greatest improvement by removing the collar of the flight jacket. Since its adoption in 1957, it has been loved by US Air Force personnel until the CWU45/P appeared in 1976. It goes without saying that in the meantime, minor improvements have been made, and it has continued to develop as a more complete product. The style has a great influence on the world of fashion, and it is no longer a military category.
