  • The M-421A is an extremely lightweight flight jacket that saw extensive use in the PTO with navy and marine pilots during WWII. It's made up in a dense but extremely soft cotton twill gabardine and features a tremendously detailed construction. Notable attributes include a 40s style nickel plated Talon zipper, bi-swing belted back, gusseted underarms and large diamond shaped patches to reinforce the sleeves. Putting this jacket on and you'll be one step closer to being behind the controls of an F4U Corsair over Bougainville in 1943.

  • The Real McCoy’s was created by Mr. Hitoshi Tsujimoto, an esteemed vintage collector and dealer, as a way to recreate the classic pieces from his archive of American fashion from the 40s & 50s. Inspiration alone was not enough to produce the ultimate reproduction, it required the sensitive minds of detail-orientated craftsmen in Japan. Additionally, The Real McCoy's reproduce materials and parts using the same methods and machinery from the past. While they create the ultimate reproduction, they seek to make it even better than the original. The Real McCoy's brand is split into distinct sub brands, to give each a clear identity. The Real McCoy's refers to the Military reproductions from the US Navy, Army and Airforce. Joe McCoy includes American sportswear, denim and workwear.
