Limited Edition Collectors Piece Jacket, Only 300 Made for Africa, With a Special Metal Plate on the storm flap Interior.

Towards the end of WWII, a popular customization trend emerged amongst U.S. servicemen and women preparing to head home. Eager to bring back a small memento of their time abroad, soldiers and pilots frequently took their government-issued clothing to local craftsmen to be embroidered with unique patterns or regional motifs. Popular designs included dragons, tigers, eagles or even maps of forward areas they had served in.

The MA-1 Souvenir Shinto pays homage to the popular customization trend that emerged amongst U.S. servicemen at the end of WWII. The color-blocked jacket features the Shinto gods: the Japanese gods of rain and thunder & lightning. Only a limited number were produced so each has a special metal plate on the storm flap interior.
