• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

Just find me an original and ill be a happy bunny !!! :)
In my experienced experience, unfortunately, WWII sweaters, typically, don’t hold up well, at this point in time. There must be some shelf life on knitted wool as I’ve had the same experience with scarves that are also mint. Once you clean them and think you’ll be able to use them, out of nowhere, a small hole (or two) will suddenly appear.

I asked Gary if they had plans do produce a C-2, but he said not at this time. I believe they used to make one years ago.

Some knit pulls in the wrists but pretty good for the price. I only took a peek at Yahoo because of the post. Gave up thinking I would get a cheapy years ago until I read this. 'Membership DOES have its privileges'.

Yes, different zipper makers. Also notice the zipper teeth on my C2 is brass and yours appears to be nickel.
