The Japanese brand Buzz Rickson's are today counted among the few high-end reproduction manufacturers of military and casual garments in the world! They strive to make true replicas by carefully researching and analyzing original vintage garments, taking great care to duplicate the material while paying close attention to technique and quality. Their goal is to bring back old forgotten techniques and machines needed to make garments of outstanding quality without compromises.
This is a reproduction of the denim pullover used by the US Army in the 30s. Denim became a standard fabric used by the army as early as 1919, replacing the brown cotton duck work clothes that were used prior to that and the pullover was standard issue up until the 1940's when a jacket with lower pockets and a buttoned up front replaced it. We actually have one of those original shirts in our archive and wrote a blog post about it which you can read here!
The fabric used is a 10oz Japanese denim. The jacket is pre washed and won't shrink.
Johan is 173 cm tall, weighs 67 kilos and wears a size 36.
