    Following my wanted thread, here is my Eastman Leather B-3, Seal and Seal horsehide trim, size 46. I believe this to be the older horsehide before they started using warhorse.

    Going to have to wait 6 months to wear it though...

    looks like a perfect fit, and in damn near new condition.

    Thanks. It seems hardly worn, there are some rub marks on the horsehide trim at the elbows.
    The shearling feels kind of dry-ish. Would anyone advise conditioning or is that a no-no?

    naw, dont wait 6 months to wear it. just twist up the ac to max, and slap it on while watching one of those great old bomber command movies, like 12 o-clock high. not to worry when your wife-girl friend comes home and does a wtf???? just say....oh nuttnhoney, just breaking in my jacket, hahahahahaha. been there, done that. my wife doesnt even scratch her head anymore, as its just part of the deal.

    Thanks dudes. I was tempted to 'try it on' again yesterday. To be honest, I'll undoubtedly do this....
