Maharishi M-1 flight jacket with embroidered dragon relishes in the fusion of military gear with peaceful embellishments.
In typical Maharishi style, the UK-owned Vietnamese-era Americana loving brand has embroidered a silhouette inspired by the United States Air Force’s M-1 flight jacket with the phrase:
“The greatest arrow is that which is broken,”
which, with its peaceful intentions, stems from one of Maharishi’s Art of War influences – either the indigenous American Comanches, Sun Tzu’s Art of War, or the Samurai’s code of bushido. Ironically, in the US military, a broken arrow refers to a stolen or inadvertently detonated nuclear weapon.
The jacket is also embroidered with deadstock US army patches and insignias, as well as dragons with Vietnamese and Chinese influences.
