Buzz Rickson's x William Gibson Type N-1 Deck Jacket - Black Demotex

$1,051

The good people at Buzz Rickson's have kindly extended their collaboration with novelist William Gibson, to include the legendary N-1 jacket. Many companies have produced their own version of this sartorial icon, but few have come as close to the originals as Buzz Rickson’s. With a keen eye for quality and attention to detail, the brand have accurately reproduced these jackets to be as close to those issued by the U.S Navy as they can be.

Boasting a vintage fit, this N-1 has been cut from a heavy woven 100% cotton fabric, affectionately known as Jungle Cloth, with a thick grain, and has been lined with a luxuriously warm alpaca wool pile. The underarm features a gusset construction, where steel grommet holes can be found for ventilation, adding to this jacket’s comfort. The vintage style zipper has been custom made for the brand and is fully bound by 100% cotton taping, no cheap plastic alternatives to be found here. That zipper is then concealed by a buttoned wind plate with reinforced buttons. The cuffs are a concealed knitted wool for a snug fit which prevents winds from reaching the arms.

Never one to shy away from details, the brand have stitch by stitch recreated the ‘Demotex-Ed’ moth proofing labels which were commonly found inside these jackets, and have custom printed the USN contract label on natural cotton for added authenticity. Draw string cords have been added to the waistband so that it can be comfortably cinched in for a custom fit.
