THE Buzz Rikson’s Flight Jacket Brown- L-2 Test Sample Brown Version BR14864.
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.
AERO MEDICAL LABORATORY (Aviation Medicine Research Institute) is constantly conducting research with the aim of enabling pilots to carry out their missions more efficiently and functionally. We will take a questionnaire to pilots who are limited to a certain period, such as whether there is room for improvement. A prototype is created by analysing the opinions of the questionnaire and integrating the requests. A test sample label is sewn on the prototype and is provided to the pilot who answered the questionnaire. They use it, refill the given form and return it to the Institute of Aviation Medicine. The returned sample is analysed and the specifications are officially established. Due to the urgent need for development and the situation before the official specifications, there may be many differences compared to the later government-supplied products. There are subtle differences, differences in detail, and sometimes even different colours from those used in mass production.
