This MA-1 Jacket is a nod to the tradition of USA service men buying custom tailored jackets as a souvenir of their tour. The tradition started in the late 40s with American G.I.'s stationed in Japan and continues today. This particular piece is based on a vintage jacket worn by those in the 345th Bombardment during the late 50s. If you're looking for a lighter piece to take you into spring, this is it.
