    This is good news. Hopefully they will have their Dubow at Duxford's Flying Legends.

    Great news for you guys in the UK!
    No more customs fees for Dubow reproductions coming from the US.

    That is true, but at £900 or so people will need to get saving.

    Funny about that. I am just about to order a 1755 from BK. Changed from the RW now that I have that.

    Just had a look at their Facebook page. The Dubow is going to be part of their Elite Units range, identical to the OP photo.

    Yes...I wonder if there will be a "plain" version available.

    Looks like he got the redish color Dubow knits down quite well.
    Mentioned on Instagram the sample jacket will be on display at the upcoming supper shows in July: Flying Legends 14-15, War and Peace 24-25th

    Eastman will definitely offer a “Sanitized” version of their Dubow. I can’t imagine going to all the trouble to create a repro of this contract and manufacturer, only to restrict its sales to a patched jacket that had limited interest to a specific market .
    If they did that, I think they would lose a lot of potential sales.

    I think Richard Winters' A2 with 506th chest patch and 101st screaming eagle shoulder patch is also a Dubow? That could be a nice elite unit jacket or?

    Nice...
    I am in for a 46” chest unpatched/ “unarted” not decorated...one with timeworn seal HH.
    Crown zipper will be a superb adding..
    900 £+/- plus shipping is fine (with me... ) ..A few months later it will be offered for sale here or elsewhere for a fraction...as usual..
    A big plus here...according to the photos of the colar...the studs are in a correct and homogeneous position...unlike many recent ELC jackets ( recently discussed here models/issue).
    Bravo! ELC.

    A bit bittersweet though, this Dubow has the omnipresent Talon zipper and I’d like a Crown zippered version :(

    The ELC HLB Corp A2 started out as an Elite Unit jacket and later plain ones were made available. The same thing will happen with the last contract Dubow.

    Well that looks stunning! Exciting stuff... I knew they were up to something! I asked a while back if there was anything new on the horizon on the A-2 front, all I got was a smile...
    I had thought either a Bronco or a Dubow!
    I bet its going to cost a pretty penny. Likely take a season or two before the plain version appears.
