What the William Gibson buzz Rickson based on ?Aint seen this jacket anywhere,
Appreciate your help,,regards PeterI'm not sure exactly which contract William Gibson B-10's are based upon, but I happened on an interesting article regarding the line. Apparently, the sci-fi author, William Gibson, had a character in one of his books wearing a black MA-1 made by Buzz Rickson. Well, Buzz really didn't make a black MA-1 at that time, and they had many requests for one after being contacted by many people who read Gibson's book. Gibson agreed to have his name on Buzz's new clothing line, and the rest is history:
We interview sci-fi author William Gibson about his line with Buzz Rickson's, working as a vintage picker, and how the internet has changed men's fashion.www.heddels.com
That’s the one I was looking at,,still prefer the original colour though ,There's one on ebay now, it looks good.
For sale is a rare Buzz Rickson's William Gibson B-10 Flying Jacket in size 42. I would rate the overall condition 9/10. It is an exceptionally well made jacket, with a thick black cotton outer shell, warm alpaca-fur lining and genuine mouton-fur collar.www.ebay.co.uk
Hah you’re probably right, instead of my Eastman G-1 I’d have a Lost Worlds G-1, etc. It would be nice to get some of the money back that I’ve spent on jackets over the years... so I could get that William Gibson B-2... but I can’t take the depreciation on selling second hand leather so they stay where they are. You’re swapping two for one, it’s crazy.I contend you would eventually have 80% of what you have now, slight variation in manufacturer perhaps.
We are all creatures of habit. Some variations in influence along the way might add a military or civilian jacket worn in a movie or trend. You will;; however, pay more for every one of them!
