    Good WEP jacket repro?

    Capt …. Correct on all counts but… he’s looking for a size 48, I don't know anyone other than GW and 5 * who would make a 48 for him.

    Looks Like AVI is Back in the Game!

    Not to diminish your enthusiasm, but reading books and reading past posts on the “topic search” part of this forum, addresses most if not all of your questions. Have you tried either of these?

    A size 48 WEP is going to be difficult to find . Bronson makes a decent one but I think they max out at a size 44. You may have to have a custom one made .

    Looks Like AVI is Back in the Game!

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of it but the owner of AVI leather is a member on this forum. His screen name is “Mortene”. That might be a question you’d like to ask him about .

    Looks Like AVI is Back in the Game!

    I guess the answer to your question would depend on knowing some specific info with regard to the licensing agreements Talon has with other makers and what they actually produce themselves . If you check the link below you will see that they provide a shit pot of zippers for everything from...

    Jan I just did a Wikipedia on Talon. It kind of skirts the issue and says they are made in “Asia” . That’s a big place so I guess they’re trying to point to China without actually saying it. Just my opinion. Check my edit above .

    Not old stock and I’m pretty sure they are repros from China, but there are others here more knowledgeable than I am on the subject. Edit; Wikipedia lists talon zippers as being produced in Asia … so I guess you can make your own assumptions.

    What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

    Chandler I think it was, it’s just too big on him . Either that or he was a smaller body type.

    B15a new in original box of issue 1945

    Capt I agree with you but the question is : Who’s trusting enough to drop $35,000 on a sealed box and never open it to see the contents ??? I want to know …. Because I have a bunch of NOS jackets in sealed boxes ;)

    What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

    For those of us who notice the fit of WWII jackets take note of the top photo . I’d say that jacket looks to be about 3 sizes big on him.

    How would you restore this AN-J-3A? Would you? Who does it well?

    I use a little dab on my fingertips. The key word is little . Once you try it you will immediately get a feel for how much to use . The first application immediately transforms the look of the hide . Too much will make it look and feel too greasy. I apply it lightly in no particular pattern, but...

    Go as light as possible with the vaseline to avoid a build up . You can always go back over it later on. Stay off the USN
