• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

Not trying to step on the thread , but if anyone has seen any info on the new BD or Bronson B-15a jacket in a larger size 44 or 46 would you PM me the info?.
Thanks
Yeah, I'd be interested in the B-15A jacket in a 46 or 48. I like the slash pockets and the fur collar.

I got the inspection photos. Hard to tell, because colors on them are always more saturated and vivid compared to real life. Here is the inspection photo of the old one vs reality and the new one. The new model is either the same color or maybe a bit more faded. The collar should be a nice russety brown. I’m happy :)

The pic of the green knit Bronson which is actually shipping helped to motivate me just in time... Thanks! :) Looking for the best deal led me to an AliExpress seller, who is also the same eBay seller that approved my initial cancellation / refund. While negotiating on AliEx, I was literally down to the wire and informed by Mr. Lee that it was the LAST size 44 with green knits available. :eek:

I made one final offer for the jacket, which was accepted, and was pleased to have saved enough to feel that I received the best deal possible. I suspected that Mr. Lee was perhaps exaggerating about the jacket being the last 44 with green knits, but sure enough they are showing as out-of-stock on both his eBay listing, and AliEx now.... When stock of the larger sizes was exhausted last year, indeed, there were no more available until just recently. I'm still curious about the Bob Dong B-10 however, but I need to draw the line and be satisfied with the Bronson, and my Buzz ST B-10's...No matter how much I like the BD's scalloped pocket flaps.. ;) :p

Glad you could nail one. IMO color wise this new batch is the best I've seen, I like it far better than BDs. Out of curiosity, is 44 your size in A-2s too?

Has anybody bothered with the bob dong B15a that’s on eBay that comes in the green or khaki it also has a name tag and patch. £150 seems good for a work jacket the collar looks thick like Eastman and buzz’s and it looks warm as you’ll need. But seriously I can’t have no more jacket boxes turning up to my house it’s causing arguments

Art,

i received the BD B15 just before I got to holidays.

Had a short chance for a quick try on but was disappointed coz the first impression was the jacket is smaller than for ex the B10 I own from BD.

Materials and craftsmanship are fine just the dimensions ...

Well i‘m back home for some fitpics and deeper check Tuesday or Wednesday ...

Will let you guys know

Carl i checked the availability of the designs you sent me when I ordered - respectively my Chinese pal did that via email - and back then none of them was on stock ...

Simply they are sometimes to lazy to keep their HP updated

The only reliable way to find out is to send them a message but they will not respond if you write in English - all my „deals“ are done via my ex teammembers which are all native-spoken Chinese ...

Is always a hassle to get the stuff from China to Europe or to get the payment sent but somehow with a bit patience it works out
