Buzz Rickson’s was established in 1993. The brand name is taken from the character played by Steve McQueen in the 1961 movie’The War Lover’. We appreciate being recognized as one of high-end reproduction vintage flight jacket manufacturers in the world, although we recognize there are many fine products out there made by others. Knowledge, state of the art materials and sewing technologies of the times were combined to achieve this detail. We adhere strictly to the specifications, materials, and the craftsmanship to recreate the original charm of each garment.
Buzz Rickson’s strives to make true replicas of flight jackets. We carefully research and analyze existing vintage flight jackets. We then make every effort to duplicate the material paying close attention to the woven fabric techniques.
