Starting with the Raw Material

Italian Lambsuede

Handmade finishes in Hong Kong

This blouson is cut from a paper pattern and includes handmade details like buttons, and pick stitching. The A-2 flying jacket was standardised by the U.S. Army Air Corps as the successor to the Type A-1 flying jacket adopted in 1927. This model is most commonly seen as the jacket with paintings on the back; these paintings could be provocative pin-up girls, or comic cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny. During WWII, many young men were enlisted in the Army Air Corps; these A-2 leather jackets became canvases for them to draw and express their rugged individuality. Some images included the name of the planes they flew, the mission they had accomplished and the number of missiles indicating designated missions flown.
