Because I have a very nice original G&F M422A!
I like a slightly larger size in a naval jacket Scott. Not sure about hwt. Lets see how it breaks in.
I thought the fit looked right on and comfortable. The only thing I noticed on two two BK jackets with wearing pics here is the knit looked loose. They look the like very nice knits but with very little tension.
That's what got my attention too. I'm sensitive to it as I have a wider shoulder and smaller waist now. Shirts, jackets, etc. the cheapo G-1's I've had I liked as they didn't have that issue. Cheapo in the relative sense.
congrats looks great. I really like my BK W&G m422 and I took it over the G&F M422a because its a pretty rare jacket and I like the symmetrical pockets. I really like mine and gald you like yours to and I agree that it is very very well made.
Thanks Alan. I bought mine for the same reasons.
Why is that, as there is so much more flexibility and movement in a Navy jacket compared to an A-2 ?
hi roughwear could we see the original willis and geiger side by side your new bk to compare the two
There is just one problem-I don't own an original! :lol:
Bifold back gives you more play at the shoulders.
This is certainly the case with this one.
I think that's why Peter asked. A jacket with bi-swing back often allows one to size down.
I've thought that some of this model from BK appear on the large side for the wearers. Just my observation. Maybe that's not what Peter meant...
I see what you mean Scott.
You're correct. That is what I meant.
What happened, did you sell your original G&F? Did you not even have an original G&F. Dementia setting in?
I have a very nice original G&F M422A, but not an original W&G M422.
I thought the only W&G M-422 contract was the S-74892. Has another been discovered?
