The thing is, the plain monkey/surfer was a garment that totally disappeared, it was never revived, not by revival mods, revival skinheads, no one. It simply vanished off the face of the planet in about 1968. That's why I don't think it could have been any influence at all on the replica MA-1.
For one thing, there already was a replica MA-1 going round just after the brief appearance of the batch of surplus originals (winter 69/70). It was in a different fabric altogether, and no one much wore them.
No, I think you're making a connection that just isn't there. Sorry.
This is the Gospel according to Man of Mystery haha!!!!
Seriously, how can you make such a sweeping statement, you must be the font of all knowledge, regarding these particular jackets, you can honestly say the these jackets .......completely disappeared from the face of world....... actually everywhere in the world from 1968 onwards?
Your actual knowledge of this statistic is amazing,
where did you get this Information, Wickipedia haha!!!!
You seriously need to get down of your high horse, your highness,
Tell you what........ if your statement, turned out to be proven correct, I would apologise and doff my cap to you.
Somehow though, I don't think it's true.
I just think it's arrogant and think your ego has got the better of you.
