More Eastman news. Following on from the excellent Quality Mending Co. collaboration, this Thunderbird Field Jacket from the mainline offers more leather goodness from the label. Thunderbird Airfield, Arizona was the brainchild of Hollywood producer Leland Hayward alongside big name investors James Stewart, Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Robert Taylor and Margaret Sullavan. In 1941 the field, constructed to look like the mythical Anasazi Thunderbird from the air, became a United States Army Air Forces training base. Step forward this jacket from that period. Based on an A-1 Instructor’s Flight Jacket, it features olive wool serge for the body, seal-brown WarHorse® hide for the sleeves and rayon-satin for the lining. As if this wasn’t enough it’s also decorated with the original rayon patch made on 1920s looms, a spot-on reproduction. More info on this awesome jacket over here.

Schott NYC and A Bathing Ape have reunited for the 2012 fall/winter season, resulting in this exclusive leather jacket. This time around the classic Schott NYC Riders jacket has been chosen as the base model. A rather in-depth process went in to choosing the type of leather that was used for the outer of the jacket. By selecting the hide of a cow that had birthed a calf over two years before, the team found that the resulting product was smoother and thinner than that of a steer but stronger and thicker than calf skin. To make sure whoever does purchase this jacket does not forget that it is a BAPE product the nylon inner features an OG Green Camo pattern throughout. All other branding has been kept to a minimum, with no obvious logos on show, not even the traditional BAPE tag. The A Bathing Ape x Schott NYC Riders jacket is expected to release in the fall with a Japanese retail price of ¥84,000 JPY (approximately $1,070 USD).
