The all-black US Navy Pea Coat is part of the fruitful and limited collaboration between Toyo Enterprise and best-selling novelist William Gibson.
In early 2003 Gibson released a groundbreaking new book titled "Pattern Recognition". An absorbing and masterfully crafted novel with a setting immediately following the events of "9-11", featuring a high-tech, super-hip, cyber-chic, anti-fashion sophisticate, Cayce Pollard, as the heroine. The most valued object of Cayce is her Black (!) Buzz Rickson's MA-1 Flight Jacket which Gibson fictionalized as an admirer of Vintage clothing and especially as a fan of Buzz Rickson's. William Gibson was well aware that a black MA-1 jacket was neither produced by the USAF nor by Buzz Rickson's but in his vision Cayce Pollard's MA-1 had to be black! To make a long story short, by the end of 2004 Buzz Rickson's gave Gibson's vision life by creating this jacket as a center piece of their 10-year anniversary. The all-black William Gibson collection was born that year and turned into a cult in the year that followed.
The Buzz Rickson's x William Gibson Black Pea Coat features a slightly shorter length compared to the original US Navy Pea Coat and was upgraded with black leather pocket welts made from premium horse hide. Of course, all the hallmarks of Buzz Rickson’s classic Pea Coat are here: the thick high-density 36oz Melton Wool fabric, “13 Stars and Anchor” Urea buttons, the large-sized collar and the corduroy-lined side pockets.
