The MA-1 bomber jacket was first developed in the mid 1950s with pilot performance, safety and comfort in mind. Replacing its bulkier leather predecessors, the jacket was lightweight and warm, and eventually made the transition into civilian garb. Wood Wood‘s Park Avenue Jacket for Fall/Winter 2012 takes the classic silhouette and reinterprets it for modern times. Made of 100% nylon with a polyester lining, each piece features cotton ribbing on the cuffs, hem and collar, while considered details like YKK zippers, zip muff pockets, and an interior pocket make for a utilitarian transitional garment. The jacket’s slimmed down cut, meanwhile, keeps things contemporary, in keeping with the Danish label’s penchant for a clean aesthetic.
A blend of both classic and modern, and an ideal outerwear option for cooler weather, the Wood Wood Fall/Winter 2012 Park Avenue Jacket is available now from our online store.
