Thomas, thank you very much for your detailed photos and for sharing your experience. This is very valuable. Now I can definitely wash my jacket and I will not be afraid for the mouton.Hi Dmitry,
washed by machine ... - see:
veeeery gentle with max. 30 Degree celcius und no thumbling ...
Hang in there @Technonut2112 , I just ordered one of the new ones. I’ll soon get an inspection photo, I will share it as soon as I can. Then, when it arrives I will post some comparison shots of the 2.
The color is different because it’s green and yours is khaki/rust. I can’t comment on the thickness, I’ve never touched yours
As for the bulkiness, I was surprised how thick the alpaca was. Maybe it’s not the lack of alpaca that makes it seem less bulky
I was referring to the 'MOD', as I was under the impression that only the B-15 A's were given that treatment in any meaningful #'s.. No, personally, I do not consider the rust knits on a Superior Togs contract 'fantasy'.. I've seen enough of their other military issue jackets with non-conforming colored knits to take BR's word on it that perhaps there were some B-10's out there which sported them..Oh dear, not the rust knit issue again! Is that your take calling it 'fantasy'?
I actually like it but with a BR B10 (yes with rust knits) and 2x MA1's this just looks like a marriage of both!
