Buzz Rickson (Buzz Ricksons / Buzz Rickson's) is a Japanese clothing brand founded by Toyo Enterprises in Japan.

And the brand draws inspiration from the functionality and beautiful designs of the old American military styles.

Here is one piece from Buzz Rickson's brand : B-15D USAF B-15D Flying Jacke flight jacket (bomber jacket, pilot jacket) with 6021st reconnaissance squadron patch outerwear for Men.

The USAF B-15D Intermediate Flight Jacket was developed as a direct replacement for the blue B-15C Flight Jacket. B-15C Flight Jackets were produced in blue circa 1950 as part of an effort by the then-new USAF service branch to stand apart from the old USAAF and its association with the U. S. Army.

This B-15D flight jacket is the reproduction of the original vintage B-15D that was worn by the pilot of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing.

Outer shell is made of 100% heavy nylon twil.
Lining shell is made of 100% nylon satin fabric.

The jacket is filled with inner lining (58% Wool 42% cotton fiber pile undyed natural color), sandwiched between the outer and inner shell lining to retains heat and protect you from the cold.

The left sleeve features a cigarette and pen pocket(utility pocket) and USAF insignia emblem print.
Crown zipper with leather pull tab on sleeve pocket.

The bomber has historic details such as oxygen mask tab correctly sewn to left front chest that were used by pilots to clip their oxygen mask retainer and two snap-down tabs (one on each breast) for retaining headset and microphone wiring leads, exactly as on original vintage B-15D's.
