This flight jacket is taking cues from various military flight jackets of yore, such as the MA-1 and B-15 and is homage to the late Bill Dehen's service in WWII. It is made from the highest quality materials and great attention to detail, so it will provide excellent service both on a motorcycle and during everyday use. Features are:
- 10 ounce waxed cotton body
- Heavyweight orange satin lining
- Fold back cuffs
- Front welt pockets with snap closures
- Genuine mouton collar with tab for neck closure
- Heavy duty 2-way brass zipper with zipper guard
- internal welt pocket with snap closure
- wax cotton fabric
- gross weight: 1.57 kg
The “wrinkling" of waxed cotton garment happens when the (often new) fabric is bent, folded, worn, etc. Over time this happens less and less. In fact it is not the fabric wrinkling but the wax that leaves these lines at high spots. It is one of the defining characteristics of the product. Like denim, it will break in, develop patina and become very distinctive to the owner.
Should the jacket’s water-repellent properties diminish after hard use over a longer period of time you can restore the wax coat with a can of Dehen "Refinishing Wax". To apply this you will need a hairdryer and a piece of sponge. Warm up the jacket section by section and rub in the fresh wax to re-establish a new water-repellent coat. It requires about an hour to do a whole jacket.
