Yes my Toys McCoys B3 is on sale at MARRKT. The fee they charge makes the jacket too expensive so I will ask them to send it back this week.
It's new with tags so I might try eBay when they next have a zero fees offer.

Aero gets first spot in manufacturers that are still in business. As you know McCoys closed in 2015.
I have always consistently said early Eastman are hard to beat particularly the Irvin

Looks good,but the decals a shame,How does it compare to aero,?
David,
I think the Aero would be an excellent choice, it would be lighter to wear and obviously cheaper. McCoys made a B3 that was very solid and heavy. The straps are particularly thick just like originals.
Sorry about my previous less than helpful reply.

Thanks John ,I’m thinking of getting down to aero to check out the sheepskin,I know Greg has left but I don’t know if it’s tony who does most sheepskin now.
If there was a sale on that could swing it but doesn’t seem as if there is one this year.

Tony has been our only full time Sheepskin machinist since 2014, Greg split his time between Sheep and Leather, Wendy has taken over his sheepskin duties

I won't gamble on a jacket with a decal again. Too often they lower the resale.... unless it was keeper like this then some art would have to cement it as part of the collection.

This is a ripper all the same John!
