Introduced by the mid-1950s, the MA-1 became the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew. An addition to the jacket in 1960 was the reversibility to show off an Indian Orange lining. The reason being if a plane crashed, the pilot could reverse the jacket to the orange side to signal rescue personnel. Part of the civilian line started in the 1970s, the MA-1 Slim Cotton Jacket updates the iconic look with a tailored fit and alternate fabrication.
