MADE FOR A RESQUE SQUADRON, PARAJUMPERS
Posted on May 30, 2013 by Marco Maggetto
The occasion was not a happy one and we were all there sitting in a bar , sad and low, waiting for an occasion to talk about something else. One friend was wearing this military jacket full of pockets, padded out in fleece and with lots of grapples. The clothes oriented I’m, the casual wear lover in me couldn’t resit but ask to remove the jacket and give it to me for a functional analysis. That was, with no surprise, very well done, stitched to kill, finished up in marvellous way. I think I stayed in silence with the jacket for 10 minutes… and I said to myself, I want one. I absolutely liked it. The model in question was” The Flea Market” jacket by Parajumpers which is a new project deriving from the cooperation between Ape and designer Massimo Rossetti. Rossetti is a well experienced outerwear designer and also an importer of American brands for the Italian market. The idea of Parajumpers appeared after a meeting with a serving member of the 210th Rescue Squadron in an ill-famed bar in Anchorage, Alaska. Men of that squadron are highly trained for extreme rescues and recoveries in the wildest, most remote and hostile corners of the Globe. Whether it be ships adrift at sea, rock-climbers stuck atop a 4,000-meter peak, or submariners sunk at unimaginable depths, these men are called to intervene. All that functionality, all that strength and perfection, are now in a very interesting brand I warmly suggest you. I want that jacket madly, what about you?
