Gotcha, I tried a 42", but it was slightly too tight. This is a 44" which is what I usually wear. I am 5'10".

I own one of them - will check for piccies tomorrow
Thomas you have a lot of dong and bronson deck jackets, do you find that the on the deck jackets does the the higher wool content in the lining on the dongs make any difference to the amount of loose fibres when you wear them.
Do you notice any difference between dong and bronson or is it about the same.

actually not!

difference inbetween the 2 B10's on the pics is the BRONSON already got a run in the washer which usually helps get ridd of any loose stuff - the "Bobby" hasn't been washed before so after wearing once i a while i find some fibers on my shoulders 'n arms

hope that helps

found another pic of the berry-knitted B10

Thanks everyone my mate is going for the lighter b-10.
Just ordered myself the dark dong dark N1D with the hooks I really like the style of the outside pockets, the blue one for me like you Thomas is not dark enough.
I wear my ww2 s chinos a lot now and it looks too much like I'm wearing a uniform with my khaki bronson,
Seems to about the same size as the bronson N1 except slightly longer and more chest room, I find most of my bronson jackets to be a bit sung on the chest if I don't want a loose a fit.
I wish they would stop doing the faded look on the stencils which is about the only fault I can find with them, whats the point on a new jacket.

you are right Dino,

i also always have th eimpression that "The Dongs" are slightly "roomier" than the BRONSON stuff. Attached is a pic of 2 BD N1 both in the "hook-Version".

The dark-dark-dark-bluish Color is a perfect match to my WW2 "new old stock" bibs



for comparison some foul weather hats in different stages of use and wear
