Thought I'd post some pictures of a B-G Inc. I recently acquired.
That’s a beauty!
Have you done any research on Larry Shpiner USNR?
What is the history of the jacket. What age is it.
I see the USS Randolph patch dated 56-57.
I know he passed away June 23, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas. He was also a docent at the Air Force Museum in Dayton.
Here is a link to a picture of him from the 1956 cruise book from the USS Randolph.
He also flew with VA-65.
That's an absolute stunner.
This might be of interest...

Wow! Beautiful jacket. The bullion patch is a work of art.
Embroidered USN on the collar, never seen that before. Are all B-G Inc. G-1s like that? Pretty special jacket.
ya mon, i concur, watta knock out.
That's yellow paint not thread. The painted stencil is correct for that time period.
This style of painted USN is unique to B-G Inc. and is always yellow.
Yep I've seen the painted ones, I even own one. I have to stop looking at pictures on my phone, clearly looks painted on the laptop. Carry on.
Lovely 55J15 jacket, which dates to the 1950 fiscal year.
