Buzz Rickson's U.S Navy WWII Utility Hickory Jacket
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 jacket was worn by the U.S Navy during WWII. The indigo denim versions are more common and in this version the material is pretty much the same except the stripe pattern used. It features a rounded shawl collar and patch pockets at the bottom. The button is a specification called "change button" that is fastened from the back with a G-ring, and unlike tuck buttons, it does not require a special tool, and since it is not a thread fastener, it is a reasonable button that does not come off due to thread breakage.
The fit of this jacket is perfect to wear for both men and women.
Johan is 173 cm tall, weighs 67 kilos and wears a size 38.
