When we talk about vintage jackets, Monitaly Bomber Jacket always come to our mind. It is inspired by the iconic USAF Flight Jacket and the classic MA-1. It has a classic bomber jacket silhouette, water resistant Vancloth fabrics and a fur collar. Monitaly first introduced this B-15 bomber jacket in their FW17 collections. Since then, they kept renewing it every winter as it was a great hit. For example, in their FW18 collection, they use black waterproof zipper.
B-15 Bomber Jacket
In FW19, Monitaly bomber jacket is in their classic olive color. You will still find the signature fur collar with a small zipper pocket on sleeve.
The collar is 100% wool ribbing made in the U.S.A. And when you have it collar up – you will find there is a holding button. It can keep you warm in a cold winter with its high-loft synthetic fur. Moreover, there is zig-zag stitching on back of the collar to make it look even more classy.
One special feature about this bomber jacket is the zipper. The gold zipper is actually come from Talon Zipper – which was the first zipper manufacturer founded in 1893 in Chicago. As we talked to Monitaly’s designer Mr. Yuki Matsuda, he spent a lot of effort to source these vintage zippers. They are in a subtle vintage gold with a vintage puller.
When it comes to the hand warming pockets, there are changes too. There is also fur inside the pocket to keep your hand warm. And besides, the fur pops our a little bit around the pockets and give it a neat look.
Moreover, it has two inner pockets. The sleeves and body is also insulated for better heat trapping.
As usual, it has Monitaly’s exclusive fabric ‘Vancloth & Sons’. And the Sateen version has the strongest water-resistant.
