This Jacket, Mountain is made of relatively light and easy to move cotton poplin, and has a very luxurious design with all 2 layered fabrics.
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.
The Army developed and adopted jackets for use in mountainous areas in 1942. When World War II broke out and the United States entered the war, they sent troops to mountainous areas in Italy and provided them with special jackets and equipment matching with the local weather and terrain. This item is made of relatively light and easy- to-move cotton poplin, and has a very luxurious design with all 2 layered fabrics except the waist part on the back. In addition, the inner shoulder and sleeve edges are finished with piping. Since it does not come with a thermal lining, it is worn with a sweater as an inner layer to cope with the cold temperature, and from that premise, it has a roomy form as a whole. The waist pocket is buttoned, and there is a pocket with gusset on the front chest to secure the contents, and it has a pocket flap that can be opened and closed with a zipper, which is to prevent items stored inside from falling off. The most distinctive feature was the large cargo pocket on the back, which was designed to carry many equipment such as a sweater and foods, and to be able to carry out missions with light attire. In order pulled backward to prevent the jacket from being when a heavy object is stored in this back pocket, a shoulder strap is equipped inside, which is carried through the arm. The waistbelt is longer than the usual trousers belts for the case a wearer needs to hold things on the back tight with it.
