Interested to see more of your GW jackets compared to other makers.
Thx, IMHO a comparison only makes sense if the same contract from different ( same level ) repro-makers is compared and or if one maker officially claims “he is the only one” making the best high quality repros... ( and this 100% as per the originals...)Interested to see more of your GW jackets compared to other makers.
Greg, thx for your question...since I sold the “Frankensteiner A-2 “ long ago, I can only refer to my PC pics..so they are not golden at all ...but greenish (but claimed by the maker... “ best possible A-2 RW 27752 made”....!!!!).
Never saw one like that...never on the web nor as WW2 original ( on the web)...2 me another fiction or invetion..I understand, but there is an option for knits called "Golden Brown" - I was just wondering if this is the one that was chosen for this RW, or a different one.
Hi Greg,@Pilot , FYI looks like Andy FLOODED Facebook with posts and pictures claiming you are a liar. Now, I've never handled a BK jacket, and I would sure love to try one, so I'm not taking sides. But 1) You guys need to settle this "Clash of Titans" in a civilized way, in private 2) I find it unprofessional and generally a bad form from his part to go out and call people liars, trying to prove his jackets are the best. The comparison photos with original that he posts are great, and I think that's all we, the buying public need. He can even make a post about "false claims" without names, he's got the right to defend his point, but going out in such a hostile way full of personal attacks...I think it's very bad PR. My 2 cents. I've really been considering giving the BK Star a try, despite what Pilot's experience was, because I've read just as many positive reviews, and his jackets look amazing in the photos. I still think he's one of the top makers. Now I'm not so sure I want my money to go to people with this kind of attitude. Gary and the guys at ELC have always been helpful and kind, and it feels reassuring to know that my "arm and leg" went to them.
J.... you are very right... Thx for sharing... But when I pay for my prime car or jacket on instalments pe... ( 900 Euro plus plus jacket ) watch etc...I dont repaint it nor change dials nor relaker it ( great Job you did) etc.. nor refurbish repaint it nor redye it...sorry J... I am a paying customer...and now I am insulted. as many other BK customers have been (where is he on TFL VLJ and others??).. 100 Y-ago one would have been shot for that offence in the old US......Not OK according to nowadays standards... OK.I think the problem is you keep bringing it up and going on and on about it and posts like these and the “crease” thing just make you look like you are trying your very best to be defamatory to them as a company. You don’t have to name names to do that but even the way you make pokes at platon by always using the name “platoon” can be seen as bad form.
You had a bad experience. We all get that. But the jacket was moved on and I feel so should this matter or taken up privately. I thought I asked and you said you never did email BK and try and get an exchange or something. So who knows what may have happened if you did. My 2 cents.
People do read these forums though and may in fact steer clear of giving them business due to what you have woven around here in different threads.
Leather is not bad quality because it creases. If it were I would have to start my own campaign trying to get hundreds of dollars back from the high quality full grain veg tanned hides I buy.
Your origins are from Banat? Which part and country?Hey Greg, I know that...besides you are my second son if I may.......))
My first one is in Seged right now... for business...My Daughter will fly out (in the plane right now) over the WE and they will tour arround in Buda and in Pest (K&K )...you know of our (my Banat part) origins...
My other son works for an international institution based in Belgium, he already visited Denmark recently for similar discussions...but...maybe he can pay a visit to the insulters shop
