Nothing wrong with that! Looks great, well done ;)
Appearance of fit is exactly like so many WW2 photos also, so no worries about that... I love the lengths.

Greeted the postman bearing gifts today, taking possession of a very well made B-10 by Mr Bob Dong. It is the exact same jacket as posted by Earloffunk. Same size too. When comparing this jacket with my Bronson B-10, I have to admit that it is a cut above. The wool lining is of better quality and denser than the Bronson. The collar is larger and more luxurious and probably too big when compared to an original, but I really like it that way. The outer shell is of a finer weave, but feels thicker. One thing that is really noticeable is the wind flap on the Bob Dong is thicker and firmer than on the Bronson. The only thing that is of higher quality on the Bronson is the knitted cuffs. The ones on the Dong are a little too short in comparison. This Bob Dong B-10 is definitely more of a Sunday go to meeting kind of jacket than its cousin the Bronson.

What with all this "Dong" speak, may I be so bold as to suggest that henceforth any references to Bob Dong be termed "BD".

Thank for the brief review. That sounds like the B-10 to own, based on the quality of the workmanship and materials. Unfortunately I’m with Ties in that until they make some larger sizes, we are out of the mix on this one. But I’m glad to see that someone is getting the benefit of a good quality produced B-10. Please post something again after you wear it for a while and let us know how it’s making out.
Cheers

the brass Zipper Looks a little bit strange, just like cheap copy of Repro Talon from Wartime.
But overall a nice copy of Buzz Ricksons B-10 for less money

I don't know if it will do any good but I did make mention to the ebay vendor dizlitchi2 ( Lee ) to try to convince the Bob Dong people to manufacture larger sizes. Sooner or more probably later the lights will switch to on for them.
I don't get why they won't do this! I'd be first in line to buy a...erm...bigger Dong.

I already tried to go that way via my Chinese pals but that was about 1,5 years ago ...

Was in Touch with both BRONSON and DONG but no interest back then

The more requests they get the easier they might get convinced
