For Winter 2014, Kinfolk has linked up with Tokyo-based brand Brown’s Beach for a new iteration of the MA-1 flight jacket. And this time, the brand’s turned up the heat.
Inspired by Kinfolk’s first outerwear design, this piece is crafted from Brown’s Beach’s unique wool-cotton blend that was originally created in 1901 for general outdoor use—so you know the quality is on point. The slightly elasticized fabric results in a comfy yet tailored fit, while the water-resistant component elevates the level of functionality and practicality. But, more than anything, this jacket is just flat out sharp.
“I wanted to create, with the design team at Brown’s Beach, a contemporary silhouette without betraying the original purpose and aesthetic of the label,” said Jey Perie, Kinfolk’s creative director. “The shoulder structure, classic color way and high-end finish provide the perfect balance to our inclinations of modern fit, comfort and functionality.”
Take a look at the Kinfolk x Brown’s Beach MA-1 jacket in the images below. You can cop the design today at Kinfolk’s online store, but you’ll want to be quick as there is a limited number of pieces available.
