Probably not a best seller for them...
Wouldn't be my choice. Can only imagine how dirty it wood look 5 or 6 years down the road.
A sponge and a reddish-brown aniline dye would make an interesting jacket.
I wouldn't say no to an ELC SFAD though but the new price is insane...
probably a babe's bomber jacket (lol)
Some guys can pull it off.....Some can't,
I would reside in that second group
I've never seen anyone wearing a normal Eastman B-3 here in England but I've seen 2 different females wearing white ones in the Soho film district.
They say the B-3 was based on the Irvin, and you can see it in that first version, sleeve zips, single collar strap, no pocket, no leather facings. Actually IMHO the untreated B-3’s only look good when they’re grubby, they look daft when they’re pristine. I agree though, they’re not for everyone, including me, although I do have a thing for the B-7. There was one in the Real McCoy’s shop in Covent Garden when I was last there, didn’t dare ask the price.
I wore my ELC .50 cal B3 in last two weeks in both London and Coventry.
Well that dude is getting away with it, I think for me personally, something more discreet, as if a big thick sheep skin jacket could ever be thst
Or, stand in the middle of a field where no one can see you....
Oh n grow a beard n long hair
Being a hipster about to get run over by a train qualifies you for the ELMC version...
He's probably daydreaming about brewing craft beer or whittling wood or whatever hipsters think about.
Damn , ya'll are ruthless. I actually really like the whiteskins. I think they look better when they get a bit grubby.
I actually like these jackets when they are well worn. Here is my 1937 original. http://www.vintageleatherjackets.org/threads/1937-contract-b-3.20044/
Sounds better than the stupid crap politicians and CEOs spend their time thinking about. I think the light version looks pretty outstanding on the Christian Bale model.
Terrible picture, but you can just make out this is an early white skin suit with under-arm gussets, narrow belts and no arm facings. Must of been the most comfortable B-3 spec.
nice version of a B3 - would wear it on the spot
