William Gibson’s MA-1 Jacket

William Gibson gives some back story on how obsessive the Japanese are while talking about a jacket he invented in his book Pattern Recognition. I love how the Buzz Rickson’s company spent a million dollars on a machine that just makes the zips for the jackets and how the company seems more interested in getting their garments just so, more than marketing them to a larger audience. They seem more like artists than manufacturers.
