    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...

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
