Buzz Rickson's x William Gibson U.S. Navy Deck Hook Jacket - Black


This piece from Buzz Rickson's is part of the brand's brilliant collaboration with author William Gibson. Originally released in 1943, this design is a lightweight but brilliantly warming military jacket. The outer shell of this model is cut from a 100% cotton 'Jungle Cloth', which is durable and designed to break in brilliantly as it is worn, whilst the  lining is a blanket wool with amazing warming capabilities. Between these two layers is a cellulose plastic inner lining which acts as an effective wind barrier, further enhancing the versatility of this jacket.

The underarms feature steel grommet eyelets which provide great ventilation, and the front hook clasps have been carefully copied from the USN 1943 originals. Two period correct ‘D’ pockets have been added for functionality and a vintage woven makers label adorns the inside collar. This jacket has been sturdily made all the way through, and heavy duty bar tacked at the stress points to ensure the longevity of its lifespan.
