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.
This deck jacket is one of the items in the US Navy’s “Special Winter Clothing” and it is used during World War II. The material used is cotton grosgrain called “jungle cloth”, which has wind resistance and water repellency. The front is opened and closed with a zipper, and the wool rib knit attached to the collar, sleeves and hem is designed to prevent wind from entering. The late deck jacket has a wool blanket lining, while the early one has an alpaca wool pile lining, featuring wind flaps and large patch pockets.
