    I saw something on instagram that the L.S.L. Garment B-10 will be available in the winter of 2019.

    Hm, don't really like the almost white mouton collar. I prefer the russte/dark brown ones. But that's just me.

    I'm just amazed by the condition of the B-10 in the picture (wipes away drool).

    Good news, they should give us a LSL with brown mouton & sage green knits too as an option, to match an original B-10...

    Edit: I think the knits on the reissue above are a pale gray/brown shade, which is very nice and period correct.



    Thanx for sharing!

    It’s funny cos I really like the blonde mouton as a contrast to the green

    The one pictured above is an original in unworn condition (dead-stock)... Buzz did an excellent job with their repros, since the one I currently have (as well as another Buzz L.S.L. I sold) is about a dead-ringer of it...

    Hello,

    If the example above is a superb NOS, they should stick with the pale brown knits. The current buzz LSL comes with a dark green (Sovereign style) knits combo... Is it only me? :(

    Regards,

    D

    Yes, it is a superb dead-stock example of the L.S.L... Likely the one Buzz patterned from, then tucked away in the glass case. The knits on mine are a darkish green. I can see a similar green (a bit lighter) when looking at the lower right side of the waistband of the original above.. Perhaps it's the lighting making it look brownish. I see no reason why Buzz wouldn't follow the original color since they have such a prime example to repro from...

    EDIT: I suppose with age, the knits may have changed color from when it was new, like I've read in other discussions on changing knit colors for various reasons.. I would like to imagine that Buzz examined them well before constructing their repro, especially since they have the dead-stock example in their possession, and did such a great job on the collar shape / pockets / pocket flap shape, general pattern, etc...

    I wonder if they will make any without the AAF emblem on the shoulder? I'd like one without that, personally.
