Vera, I did take note of your comments as you own McCoy jackets and aren’t quick to snub them off as overpriced without handling their jackets. This makes 4 people that actually own mccoys have said the quality is better than the others. In my eyes McCoy are the creme de la creme in repros.

Nathan - I am new to this forum and very interested in purchasing a Mil-J-7823 B/C size 42 in good condition. I am a Navy Veteran and looking to purchase. Is there a way for me to post my inquiry to this forum and/or any recommendations for how I can acquire a nice jacket. Thanks Gerry

G’day Ken,

I’m from the south west of Western Australia & I think that I could wear a RAF flight jacket through our winter. I read on VLJ that your new merino pebbled BOB RAF jacket is actually lighter in it’s wool thickness vs your standard versions. Is this somewhat accurate Ken?

I’ve added more in an email due to post size.

Thank you for your time Ken.

Kind Regards
Steve Brown
