The MA-1 VF 59 is the slim version of the regular MA-1. Although the name sounds rather enigmatic, you don’t have to be Alan Turing in order to decipher it: the VF stands for “Vintage Fit,” indicating that this version offers a slimmer fit than the original. The digits “59” mean that this particular item’s fit is inspired by the MA-1 from 1959. Consequently, the MA-1 VF 59 is the perfect choice for anybody who want their flight jackets to fight more tightly. The VF 59 does away with the bulky appearance of the modern MA-1 to achieve a sleeker look. Other than its differing fit, the MA-1 VF 59 features the same innovative flight nylon outer shell, lining and padding as the modern version. Pro tip: combine it with a 1950’s box cut and a ballsy attitude for the best experience.
