The MA-1 winter jacket by Shawn Stussy offers a modern interpretation of classic military flight crew coats adapted into a parka that can keep wearers warm in even the coldest of conditions. The coat features a revived bomber style aesthetic that has been adapted to offer more layering and durable material for outerwear.

The coat takes inspiration from flight crews that would wear leather bomber jackets to keep warm during their expeditions. The coat has been since spoofed up to accommodate a more universal winter wear with a longer shape design coupled with a water repellant and wind-resistant outer shell. Despite the parka design, the material is thin and lightweight cutting down on bulkiness, but still offering several pockets for storage.
