While living in Miami, you don’t get much as far as cold weather. The occasional cold front at the end of the year helps bring out the winter gear, but just for an hour or so. This didn’t stop us from picking up the our MA-1 Flight Jackets and going on an adventure. One of the benefits of living in a tropical major city is that you’ll always find a location of inspiration. From North Miami Beach to Little Havana, this calls for a photographic adventure and a true #AlphaMission.



As I heading out with a few friends and the flight jacket, I wanted to find places in Miami that would contrast and show how the jacket could be styled in different ways. The first stop was Little Havana, where you can find the most classic of cars. Since the flight MA-1 flight jacket is reminiscent of 1950’s air force gear, finding a classic 50’s light blue Chevy to shoot next to just felt right. We had to do a little sneaking around to get the shots, but the end result was worth it. The blues and greens popped perfect with the golden sunset light.



Key Biscayne was our next stop. We found a few miles of bridges and mini beaches. Light is key to any photo, so shooting during sunset is always my favorite time. Not to mention it makes the best time to play with shadows. For this location, my friend showed off his style and skill by contrasting the green jacket with all black ripped jeans and black Yeezys, while literally taking flight in the flight jacket. The long shadows and golden light accentuated the contrasting colors perfectly while I captured my friend in mid – flight.



If not street wear, my photos are usually of the beautiful women of Miami. I wanted to show that the flight jacket can be styled in a sexy way. For this look, my friend and I added a little of that Miami flare in the mix. We matched different shades of greens and a tropical backdrop with a bikini and flight jacket. The contrasting styles made for a great set of photos that shows off what my city is about. The flight jacket was along for the ride on our adventures.
