    I was wondering if anyone with original B15-A’s could post up some images of there jackets
    Particularly interested in the colours of mouton used by the makers
    Any close up images would be greatly appreciated
    I have to confess I know very little about these jackets other than what I have gotten from the Eastman site

    I used to own an original Roughwear B-15A. I’ll see if I can find some photos.

    Fantastic Peter thank you
    I have seen Grants one on a separate post and hope that some of the collectors here might post up some bits in due course

    A bit of a blue-ish hue as it is indirect window light only. They would fade a bit so there is variation.

    All the collars I've seen have been dark brown.
