This Type N-1 KHAKI deck jacket is reproduced by "Buzz Rickson's", based on vintage jackets. The so-called N-1 jacket and trousers of the same material were a set and adopted for the U.S. Navy ship crew between World War II and the Korean War. The outer material is a cotton grosgrain commonly called "jungle cloth," the same material as other deck jackets. The lining is alpaca mohair and wool pile with excellent windshield and insulation. The N-1 navy blue model was adopted in 1944, and the khaki model was distributed in the following year, 1945. The changes made were not limited to color. The two models have distinctive differences, including the later model's omission of the alpaca mohair sewn on the inside of the cuff, simplification of the loop attached to the underarm of the lining and hem-drawstring, increased size of the hem drawstring eyelet, and relocation of the underarm eyelet.

We find that as Buzz Rickson’s is made to an original spec, the brand is small compared to modern fits; therefore we advise customers to try at least a size larger than their standard size. We recommend that you contact our stores so our helpful retail teams can offer advice and give exact sizing information before you purchase.
