BR14940 / BUZZ RICKSON'S AVIATION ASSOCIATES D-2 PARKA (MOD.) REVERSIBLE
Features
The US Army Air Corps adopted the D-2 parka as a winter jacket for mechanics in 1944. The predecessor D-1 model, made of sheepskin, was reexamined in its weight and ease of movement, and was modified to be made of cotton fabric with alpaca wool pile lining. While the officially adopted D-2 parka was a pullover type, this unique civilian model is changed to a full open front type to make it easier to put on and off, and also goes beyond the original D-2 parka with reversible specifications.

What's AVIATION ASSOCIATES?
From the 1920s through the 1940s , various types of flight jackets were commercially available at the market featuring the elements of Army spec. When examining the old photos during the World War, we were able to spot a few pilots with a non-Army issued jacket. Officially, soldiers were not allowed to wear non-Army issued jackets, but the regulation became loose during the actual war time. The difference between Army issued and non-Army issued can mainly be seen on the design and material usage, but the similar color was used in accordance with the original Army-issued products to meet military regulations. And also the design of non-Army products were obviously based on Army issued items, many non- Army jackets were somewhat modified with a bit of original twist, providing really classical look to the eyes. Aviation Associates was the legendary line that commercially manufactured by the previous contractor Buzz Rickson MFG. We would sincerely want you to feel the spirit of our product through these jacket.
