There's a diff. purpose of superdenim's flight jacket thread. Don't get there to flood it with pictures of fahshunz jackets.

Yeah, that thread is 98% WWII leather repros. This thread is about MA-1s.

rick from around 07-08? with removed pocket. probably my favorite in the collection. others are hl x 3, raf, stone island, cp company, alpha. i probably had around 20 ma-1s over the years. hoodie under ma-1 forever!

wow all of the ocd ma-1 people just stepped out of the woodwork with the flood of pictures

kind of makes the thread hard to read though

anyway

in my head, i have this mythical "cayce pollard" way of wearing an ma-1, and while some of those girls are close to that ideal, i feel like no one has truly executed this look completely (with style)

the ma-1s that i have owned are all a bit too slim for my liking

ma-1s are great because it is once of the rare instances where you can totally get away with super oversized silhouettes

the komakino ones are especially dope if you wear em oversized.... like i am a size 44/46 and with a sz 50 it was dope as hell

yea ideally an ma-1 retains its characteristic billowy, voluminous shape. i feel that some of the modern ma-1 interpretations lose that by cutting the jackets too slim and leaving out the polyester insulation. the rick owens (fw 07/08?) ma-1 was a good compromise - it was slim but retained some of the classic shape bc it was filled with down

I've been thinking about makng my own MA-1 for a while now. It'll be based off an original pattern made to my specs.

For the fabric, I'm thinking of a water resistant dense weave nylon, but in a matte finish. As for the fit, I have a pretty clear idea of what I want; defined shoulders but with some volume and shape, not unlike vintage Helmut bombers. So a fit somewhere in between the Attachment and Chloe bombers posted earlier.

That would be awesome, the problem is that most of those girls are doing it in sort of fashionable way, where Cayce from Pattern Recognition did it because she wanted to be free from fashion...

Not exactly MA-1

But this is the most ideal flight jacket fit/sizing.

Hey what jacket is this?

Haven x Reigning Champ. Just ordered one in grey. MA-1 is just a great silhouette, and I think the sasquatchfabrix is my favorite. Anime reminiscent graphics tend to get a cosign from me.
