Venice Beach-based brand Coldsmoke is known for creating interesting and technical takes on classic outerwear silhouettes and for this season, the brand is setting its sights on a classic wardrobe staple: the MA-1 Flight Jacket.
Made in California, the latest release puts a heavy emphasis on fit and overall tailoring. Featuring a slimmer cut, Coldsmoke has elected to remove the traditional elastic bottom in favor of a tailored hem for an almost shirt-jacket like feel. Traditionally, the MA-1 Flight Jacket features arm pockets for style, but here Coldsmoke has elected to replace them with a single water repellent zippered opening that serves as a media pocket.
The outer shell is comprised of a Japanese-made water repellent flight cloth, and for warmth, Polartec Alpha insulation has been utilized. With both technologies working in harmony against the elements, the technical features of the piece allows for adaptation to a wide range of activities and environments.
The Coldsmoke MA-1 Jacket will arrive in three colors of olive, navy and asphalt, and will retail for $339 USD at Coldsmoke's official webstore.
