The N3B Snorkel Parka was produced by the US Military flight crews stationed in cold climates in the early 1950s. The design was copied and sold to the civilian market by many manufacturers which varied in quality and specification. In the late 1980s the snorkel parka became unpopular and was associated with geeks and nerds, due to the jacket becoming popluar with train spotters. Then came a resurgence thanks to Brit Pop bands including Blur & Oasis. The AW16 version from Stand Aloné features:

- Front Zip Closure Partly Concealed By Placket w/ Buttons

- Faux Fur Lining in Hood

- Extra Long Drawcords at Hood

- Drawcord at Waist

- Two Front Breast pockets w/ Snap Button Closure

- Single Pocket on Sleeve w/ Zip Closure

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BOMBER JACKET / MA - 1 JACKET [LONG]

COLOUR: KHAKI, WHITE, BLACK.           SIZE: 2, MEDIUM.           FABRIC: 100% NYLON.

The MA-1 Bomber jacket was produced to replace the flying jackets used in the United States Air Force. Due to modernisation of aircraft they were able to fly much higher and colder altitudes, meaning it was colder in the cockpit. Their answer was the MA-1, made from the newly discovered Nylon Material. Once they became commerically available the MA-1 was adopted by British subcultures including punks & skins. The MA-1 still remains one of the most reproduced military jackets to this day. Stand Alone have updated the classic jacket by elongating the body and also features:

- Front Zip Closure

- Two Front Pockets at Waist w/ Snap Button Closure
