Alpha Industries Classic MA-1 Jacket

Alpha Industries MA-1 | The Style RaconteurBefore bouncers, punks, skinheads and Yeezy started wearing Alpha’s MA-1 jacket it was the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy. The MA-1  jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion.

AI’s classic flight jacket includes knit cuffs, a knit collar and waistband, as well as a strong front zipper with storm flap for warmth. There are multiple snap-closure pockets as well as the utility/pencil pocket with the “Remove Before Flight” key chain. An addition to the jacket in the 60’s was the reversibility to show off an Indian Orange lining. The reason being if a plane crashed, the pilot could reverse the jacket to the orange side to signal rescue personnel, exactly what you need on a night out up North!

This classic version has been kept as close as possible to the classic specifications, it has been the subject of many colabs over the years but this in its purist version is pretty iconic.

Passarella Death Squad x Penthouse

14-01-2015_passarelladeathsquadxpenthouse_brettrossitee_white_1I first come in contact with Passarella Death Squad in around 2008 when I saw a t-shirt print of half naked girls convorting with Big Ben (The clock!) since then they have taken us on a journey fron scantly clad women to vintage arcade games..now they have teamed up with storied men’s lifestyle magazine (Jazz Mag!) Penthouse to produce a limited number of prints, based on David Cronenberg’s Videodrome. The deeply unsettling film explores the darker corners of sexuality in the information age, and these prints owe their grainy affect to its exploitative VHS aesthetic. With models taken from the Penthouse archive, the images are perfectly clipped which ooze 80’s cool. Available now…there also will be an exhibition showcasing the prints so keep your peepers out here for more info asap.

Penfield Pac Jac Jacket

Penfield Pac Jac | The Style Raconteur

The Penfield Pac Jac Jacket was made famous when worn by both Gallagher brothers in the mid 90s when Oasis were in their prime and most memorably when Noel swanned on stage in Red and Tan version at Maine road in 1996 for what was most probably Oasis’s greatest ever set.

The jacket is made from showerproof nylon with drawstring to hood, inner waist & hem and large pouch pocket on the front with Penfield logo on. The cut of the jacket is pretty amazing with 3 drawstrings giving you the option to pull it in around the waist, hem and hood, there’s no wonder it was favoured by Rock n Roll stars and it’s perfect for gigs and festivals as it folds into its own pocket for easy storage.

Stone Island Garment Dyed Flowing Camo Bomber Jacket

Stone Island SS15 Camo Bomber Jacket | The Style Raconteur

A new running theme or side collection for Stone Island this continues for Spring Summer 2015 with an design inspired by an indonesian  camouflage from the 1960’s. The garment that stands out for me is the simple bomber jacket, the fabric is a double weave military-spec fabric, made with a cotton / nylon blend weft and a linen warp, which has then been treated inside to create a light level of wind and water resistance. A classic, athletic design, it is equipped with two welt pockets, a ribbed collar, cuffs and hem and is finished with of course the detachable logo patch at the arm.
