These are pretty cool. I wish the Air Force was a 44R as that was my service back in the day.View attachment 1553864
Okay guys, I'm super excited for this!
Today I'm launching seven vintage M65 jackets. Matt Smith (Rebels and Rogues) sourced the garments and kept an eye out for ones with good proportions that would fit how we want them to. The coats date from the 1970s and were made here in the States by Alpha Industries.
We dipped all of them four times into a reactive indigo dye bath. The result is freaking awesome! The shell fabric takes the dye with horizontal striations.. and the color is a subdued navy. Patches and other details got totally dyed out. There's just nothing like it at all!
Sizing is individual for these, and we're going to have the following (approximate) sizes available:
38R (This one is already online and available)
These jackets are an easy fit, so the sizing will work for someone who's a bit off from that exact number too.
