A captivating flight jacket.


Aging Man.

RIER that may only be cliché.

This is a modernized MA-1.

Hey Sugimura, you got it... Is that you? lol

A sloppy jacket.

Thank you for your help this year.

Naoto Alone.


Made in Spice Country.


This is Kinoshita from cliché.

I was very interested in flight jackets and ordered them from many brands.

The last piece has finally arrived.

The last one is authentic, and it is suitable for the end.

Real military champion BUZZ RICKSON'S.

Heroes always arrive late.


"B-15C (MOD.)


¥82,500 (TAX IN)

L-2B and A-2 are already available, but

I was worried about one more model, so I chose the B-15C instead of the MA-1.

The best one is MA-1, but...

There is a clear reason for this, which I will discuss later.

First of all, let's review "INTERMEDIATE ZONE"

A jacket for the temperature range corresponding to the general cold from 10 degrees Celsius to minus 10 degrees Celsius.

Flight jackets require cold protection and functionality,

Although it is essential, winter protection must also be adequate.

Fighter planes with closed cockpits appeared in World War II,

As the temperature environment inside aircraft has improved, we have switched from leather to cloth.

I wrote about the evolution to nylon in my previous blog, but

The first cotton jacket, "B-10", was born in 1944.

Its successor will be the "B-15" that we purchased this time.

There are four types of B-15: A / B / C / D. A is made of cotton, and B to D are made of nylon.

C became independent from the Army Air Corps in 1947.

It is dyed Air Force Blue, which is the symbol color of the United States Air Force.

When it becomes D, it becomes sage green,

The details were completely finished at point C, so

It is said that there were no details changes from C.

Then, with the appearance of MA-1, it declined and its history came to an end.

B-15C is a compact flight jacket that can withstand the depths of winter.

The liner contains wool pile and has excellent heat retention,

It's a heavy outerwear that has a range of motion and is easy to move around in.

Midwinter is spent without wearing down. It should be very stylish and manly.

yeah? No shearling on the collar?

First of all, how is it different from MA-1?

That's right.

B-15 is made of shearling and has a flat collar. It is completely different from MA-1.

However, this one is very similar to MA-1 with a ribbed collar, right?

The B-15C we purchased this time is not just a regular model, but a "Modified (MOD.)" model.

After World War II, with the arrival of jet aircraft,

Existing aviation equipment will undergo a major overhaul.

The same goes for flight jackets.

The best example is the introduction of hard helmets.

Hard helmets are so-called large headgear, so

It hit my collar and was getting in the way.

The idea was to remove the obstructive collar.

If there is nothing around the collar, the wind will get in and it will be cold,

This B-15C (MOD.) has been remade with wool ribs.

It is almost the same as MA-1, but the story of this work,

I feel that the traces left by this process have a story to them.

We were fascinated by the first flight jacket.

The white stitching near the collar and hem ribs,

This is to let you know that the collar has been reattached.

Additionally, a white label was added later to indicate that it has been officially renovated.

The original label is peeking out from the top, so you can see that it was reattached.

Although it is a small detail, it is quite noticeable in AF BLUE, so

What that? It's sure to pique your interest.

It doesn't stand out and looks good in the same color, but if you're going to be altering hundreds of clothes, you can use any color.

Although I like flight jackets and military and have been researching them,

I didn't know the story up to this point, so

It also gave me an opportunity to learn something else.

Beyond the military framework,

MA-1 has had a huge impact on fashion all over the world.

I wanted to recommend the model that became the prototype,

This is the reason why I chose this model.

Oxygen tab, pocket without flap,

Cigarette pocket, ICS loop,

Zigzag stitched wind flap.

Full of incredible details,

Authentic reproduction of real military wear.

The zipper is a size 10 crown spring camlock zipper.

The history of flight jackets cannot be told without the presence of zippers.

It is said to be a very important existence.

It is said that the crown was active and existed from the 1930s to the 1960s,

Now, Toyo Enterprises, the parent company of BUZZ RICKSON'S, has acquired the trademark.

It is said that only vintage items from that time or this Oriental type exist.

After all, it's only when you make it this far that it becomes the real thing.

It is no exaggeration to say that the dignity of a champion emanates from the zipper.

I like the military, but

As I said in my last blog, I don't like reproductions.

Of course, the original is the best, but...

There are some things that are hard to come by, and that doesn't mean that

You will never buy a repro that claims to be a faithful reproduction.

In today's world, it feels like the concept of reproduction is being looked down upon.

BUZZ RICKSON'S conveys the scent of the time from 1 to 100 as if it were the driving force.

It's already beyond the scope of repro.

Wearing size: 38 (168cm)


cantate "Crew-Neck Sweater" ¥93,500 (TAX IN)

cantate "Denim Flare Trousers" ¥40,700 (TAX IN)

Available in 3 sizes: 38, 40, and 42.

If you only look at the latest clothes, they look compact, but

This fit is what makes flight jackets so cool.

L-2B is a light zone, so

I ordered a large size because I wanted to layer it, but

Close contact also improves heat retention, so for B-15C, Sugimura chose 38 and I chose 40.

As for the margin, it's just right for wearing knitwear.

You cannot wear it under your innerwear any more than this,

It's not so-called batting or down, but wool is flocked to the cotton fabric,

It's made of brushed material, so it's warm enough.

The cotton wool pile in the middle has a notch near the elbow for ease of movement.

If you want to be strong, it would be perfect if you wrapped a muffler around it.

Wearing size: 40 (175cm)


cantate "Garment Dye Crew Neck Pullover" ¥55,000 (TAX IN)

cantate "Fine Corduroy Trousers" ¥55,000 (TAX IN)


It's all navy and has a BEIGE sweatshirt as an inner layer.

Flight jackets and sweatshirts go perfectly together.

Compared to the short-length jacket, the ribbing of the sweatshirt gives it an even better balance.

The part where the hem is slightly exposed when the zip is tightened is the best!

This portion alone can make three bowls of rice.

Wearing size: 42 (175cm)


cantate "Turtle Neck L/S Shirt" ¥27,500 (TAX IN)

cantate "Denim 1955 Trousers" ¥42,900 (TAX IN)

Nine Tailor "Kauri Watch" ¥9,900 (TAX IN)

salomon "XT-6 GTX" ¥31,900 (TAX IN)

42 is a size that can be worn comfortably.

Sugimura 38 and Kinoshita 40 are just a guideline,

If you don't want it to be too tight, you may want to go up one size.

However, this smells just like leather.

I don't feel like it's something I would go through the trouble of going up a size to wear.

Even if you force it, there is a possibility that it will only look unsightly.

I have no doubt that we will be together for a long time,

Choose the best size, keeping in mind that you will wear it even when you get older.

I was curious about the night atmosphere, so I took an extra photo.

The firm nylon twill is shiny, but

A unique dull luster or "slimy texture"

It has a high-quality look that you can feel at first glance.

As I expected, it looks good at night too.

B-15C is the sex symbol "Marilyn Monroe"

This model is famous for being worn when visiting US military bases.

At that time, it is said that they welcomed the famous actress' visit by wearing the ``MOSQUITO'' patch of the military stationed there.

The mission of "MOSQUITO" is to find enemy ground facilities and movement of enemy troops,

When a target is detected, smoke grenades are dropped to ensure a successful attack .

The mission was to provide radio contact through ground forces to fighter-bombers circling overhead.

The name "MOSQUITO" literally means "mosquito".

It was named because it is impossible to predict when and where it will appear.

This refers to a unit that has a history of being hated and feared by the North Korean military.

Even in this day and age, people appear out of nowhere,

The fact remains that it is unpredictable.

We have different goals, so

There is absolutely nothing that I despise...

No, he stole something incredible.

It's your heart.

I'm shocked.
