Continuing its anime-centric commentary on archive fashion and internet culture, Rough Simmons has now released its reimagination of Raf Simons‘ coveted “Riot” Bomber with Akira references.

The latest release utilizes the same black/white camouflage oversized MA-1 bomber blank used by Raf years ago decorated with printed denim patches all over. The hand-screened patches express and elements drawn from Katsuhiro Otomo‘s Neo-Tokyo epic that continues to inspire generations. A custom vintage treatment process leaves the jacket with a worn-in look and feel that adds to depth to the overall aesthetic character.

Each jacket comes fully lined with an orange lining and polyester filling for added warmth. While the large, double-pull brass zipper, two-snap closure welt pockets and zippered MA-1 pocket on the left sleeve provide the outerwear piece with essential functionality.

Priced at $650 USD, the Neo-Tokyo Bomber Jacket is available now on Rough Simmons’ website.
