Our long favorite local menswear brand based in the city of Bandung known as UNKL347 recently released the iconic “BMR” mens MA-1 inspired bomber flight jackets for the month of June 2015. This mid-weight nylon jacket is made with scads of versatility as the MA-1 navy fighter pilot jacket was the first military flight jacket to cross over into civilian fashion. Their interpretation of nylon flight jacket includes knit cuffs, a knit collar and waistband, comfort rated in temperatures from 0 or minus degrees Celsius, as well as a strong front zipper with storm flap for warmth. There are multiple snap-closure pockets as well as the utility or pencil pocket with the “Remove Before Flight” keychain. Their version of MA-1 jackets are not reversible to its bright orange on the inside, making them not an ideal piece of equipment for rescue missions or in other times when visibility is imperative. This current version has been kept as close as possible to the classic specifications could dating back to the early 1950s. For those of you who are willing to spend your money on this product, the “BMR” bomber flight jacket by UNKL347 is now available online with retail price of IDR 400.000. It comes with modernized tall T sizing, which offers slightly longer torso and sleeve lengths for body fits.
