But it's a minor collection compared to most here I guess. I have three original military leather jackets. An A-2, an Irvin, and a B-3. Not really into jackets that I can't wear, so the B-3 is out since it's very delicate. The Irvin is wearable, but only good for really low temperatures anyhow. Might not wear it to a pub say anyhow, since it is a historical piece. The original A-2 is ok to wear, but it is a named with provenance jacket, so I don't think I would or should wear it much. So haven't worn it in ages.

1980 Gibraltar Tanker Jacket New Old Stock the unbagging. Inspector tag still in the left hand pocket.
It seems that the smaller jackets are much easier to find in this condition than the larger ones. The prices on them are really good and it’s a very functional warm jacket. I like it a lot .

Yup, this seller has a box full of unissued Small/shorts. This jacket size fits me pretty much exactly as a 38 size chest five foot three guy. That's why I had to take advantage of this. The last one I bought, the seller said it was NOS but it looks a little worn. This one is definitely never worn/issued. Has original tags as said previously. I'll leave it in the bag with the tags and save it for later on when my other two are getting threadbare. These are my favourite jackets for everyday ease of wear when the weather is fall/early spring chill weather.
