    due to the fact that I was pretty satisfied with the "red knit" B10 I purchased from BOB DONG I was checking wether I can also get hands on the greenish version of the jacket ...

    one of my pals got in touch with a shop which announced to not have any more size 44 B10`s on stock but something will come up within the next few weeks ...

    forwarded me these pics

    looks like a pretty naughty attempt to copycat one of the BR / RMC jackets (think I saw that distinctive "Chief" already on a BR jacket (B3???) and not so sure wether I want one of these printed jackets

    need to consider ...

    let me know what you guys think about it ...

    Saludos!

    If it was just the patches Thomas I'd be in like Flynn but that painted back? Hmmm, I'm not sure.

    These Chinese companies have a big future if they keep this up though.

    Smithy i‘m With you - only the patches OK but that print on the back really keeps me away ...

    I seriously believe that if a western distributor can be set up for these Chinese companies like Bob Dong and Bronson, they'd sell like hot cakes. That's probably the one thing which makes people hesitate is the ordering from China direct and the potential language difficulties/misunderstandings. Saying that though it does seem that it's getting easier to order from China and that they are trying to make it easier for us in the West to buy from them what with even Fleabay stores now.

    Part of me is tempted but I'm still happy with my ATF B-10 for now.

    I'm with Smithy on this one. The pin up in the back looks more like a part from a 60's ad than a pin up from WW2. The reste looks great, though!

    If cheap enough, sure. The patches and "paint" are a sure no-go IMO.

    If they get a copy of a decent nose are reference they will be on a gold mine...

    Cedric you nailed it! That "pin up" looks more 60ies than wartime ...

    I know there was something but couldn`t point it out
