Buzz Rickson Navy Pea Coat - USN 1910's Model

Buzz Rickson has gone to great lengths to reproduce the perfect classic pea-coat...

The US Navy's original pea-coat was fabricated from heavy, 32-ounce melton wool and, up until the late 1930's, featured black bakelite buttons displaying an anchor surrounded by 13 stars; the 13 stars were derived from the original 13 states when the United States became an independent nation and broke its ties to England in 1776. The large-sized collar of the coat was designed to block strong ocean winds and the corduroy-lined side pockets helped thwart the numbing effect on hands from the biting winter seas. By the 1940's, officer's coats were redesisgned and the heavy melton wool was relegated only for the enlisted ranks' pea coats and the 13-star buttons were changed to the fouled-anchor design still employed to this day.

Buzz Rickson takes it back to their favorite era of the pea coat, the 1910 style with all the classic stylings found on the original.

These pea coats are now available in-store and in our online store, reorders on Buzz Rickson products are not possible, therefore once gone, there will be no restocks:

William Gibson Party at Self Edge - November 9, Sunday The man and legend himself, William Gibson, will be visiting Self Edge for an intense four hour long party on Sunday November 9th between 1pm and 5pm. Some may know William Gibson from his venerable writings and creating and leading the cyberpunk genre with his world acclaimed novels such as Neuromancer, Count Zero, Pattern Recognition, and Spook Country. Others may know Gibson from the Buzz Rickson x William Gibson double-name line which is produced in Japan by TOYO (Sugar Cane). In our eyes the line started before Gibson ever met the men behind TOYO as Gibson wrote about a Buzz Rickson jacket that didn't actually exist in his novel Pattern Recognition. A Buzz Rickson black MA-1 Flight Jacket worn by Cayce Pollard set the wheels off and from there we've had reproductions of the most beautiful military pieces as seen through the eyes of William Gibson. Even a recent set of Porter (Yoshida & Co.) bags has pushed the line even further into the accessory field and a set of classic athletic sneakers has widened the footwear line for the first time into the non-military issue realm. William Gibson will be visiting Self Edge as a trip to further research all things denim and Japanese and at the same time to celebrate the William Gibson x Buzz Rickson line. Come by and meet the man behind it all and enjoy a beer brewed down the street in our fine city. Self Edge 714 Valencia Street San Francisco 94110 November 9th Sunday 1pm to 5pm First fifty people get a collectible Buzz Rickson Bandana... More specials to be announced closer to the date of the party.

^^Thats pretty amazing. Too bad I live on the other side of the world... just rereading Spook Country, slightly better this time around!

^ maybe i will give SC another chance; i was underwhelmed the first time around
post #55 of 80
^^ it might be worth it. It reads like a somewhat ordinary "thriller" novel though, which is dissapointing, but it has a nice pace, and some of the character work is really interesting. SC is imo his worst work together with Pattern Recognition, but still rather worthwhile.
post #56 of 80
SC had a "bridge to nowhere" feel to it. I still love PR for the dissection of Tommy Hilfiger, and the description of the BR MA-1, and whatnot. But yeah, the Neuromancer shadow looms large. I saw (the tall) Mr. Gibson speak when SC first came out, and the BR collabs were first hitting Rakuten, but Mr. Gibson never called on me during Q&A. I desperately wanted to ask him if he thought Cayce would be allergic to his collabo with BR. The answer would have to be yes.

Self Edge x Buzz Rickson Loopwheeled Crew-Neck Sweatshirts - RUM BATS!

A new take on the vintage military design of the Vampire Bats crew-neck sweatshirt originally reproduced by Buzz Rickson. Take from the design what you will... It holds true for us.

Available in limited numbers on Buzz Rickson's loopwheeled sweatshirts, the ultimate sweatshirt for those looking for a great fit from a super soft and warm fabric.

Buzz Rickson's Premium 1930's & 1940's all-cotton athletic sweatshirts are proof that yet there is still hope in finding simple basics made with the care that Toyo puts into producing these. Made from 13-ounce 100% cotton fabricated on 1920's-vintage loop-wheeling machines, styled with all the correct features found on the old sweatshirts and cut to hug the body in a flattering form without bulk just as the vintage originals did.

This is the real deal, meant for those who crave a slice of the good old days to perfectly compliment a pair of Japanese selvedge denim dungarees.

Modeled by Carl & Kixslf, shot by SidneyLo.

Available now in-store and in our online store in limited quantities. Along with the SEXBR sweatshirt we also now have grey sweatshirts which are blank:

Does anyone know if this jacket is made without the stencil: http://en.item.rakuten.com/takeoff-c/i00002412/
post #59 of 80
unfortunately not, only the the Sugarcane x mr freedom version comes without the back stencil but they are mostly OOS
post #60 of 80
Yeah i'm still beating myself over not getting one of those when the chance was there. Does anybody know of a way to remove such a stencil?
