    I couldn't begin to list my entire inventory as it likely approaches 100 jackets. I've got around 20 in the L-2 series alone. I don't live in a warehouse, but I do have a 10'x10' storage space in addition to what's in the house. :eek:

    I think we should kick this one off again. Far too long.

    good idea...so being a rather new guy here, let me start the thingie...

    all repro jackets as originals are nearly impossible to come by here in Austria:

    Leather:

    ELC G-1
    ELC B-3
    ELC B-6
    ELC 1940 Irvin
    el cheapo A-2 (just for the fun)
    old Avirex G-1 (looks more like a mix between a ANJ-3 and a G-1)

    Cloth:

    el cheapo B-10 (also just for the fun)
    RW B-15
    BR N-1
    BR 37J1 (incoming, hope it fits)
    Hayley Enterprises AN6551 (weird one, but still looking quite nice)
    Alpha N-3b

    as I am also collecting books, the jacket collection is rather small due to space and spouse restrictions applying....

    OK I'll be nice and play along:

    Eastman Star Sportswear A-2 size 40
    80s Airex A-2 size 40 (adorned with patches and a Memphis Belle artwork)
    AVI LTHR G-1 Size 42 (VF-84 patches)
    WPG Irvin size 38
    Bronson B-15 size 40 (487th FS patch)
    Bronson 1955 MA-1 size 40

    (not a very respectable collection compared to some of the above :( )
