Yuki Matsuda's Monitaly has always delivered on obsessively detailed garments. The CWG Blouson is a familiar shape, the nylon flight jacket rooted in the L-2B. From this template, Yuki stripped off some non-essential details and then built the entire garment from dead stock parachute fabrics. Each jacket consumes the best parts of a 1970s-1980s US Army parachute.
The front zipper (a vintage Scovill Gripper) uses the edge of the parachute where the webbing is extra-wide for support. The upper back utilizes the top of the parachute where all the seams join in a design reminiscent of the field shirts from the Korean War. Custom-knit ribbing is found at the cuffs and hem, made just for Monitaly.
For storage, two big front pockets (with snap closures) can fit all kinds of stuff in them, and there are two sizeable webbing pockets on the inside. Should you get stuck in the rain, there's a retractable hood concealed within the collar that can be zipped away when not in use.
Fits true to size. Dry clean or spot clean only.
