    I bought this superb Eastman Perry B-3 in a size 44 at Legends in 2014. I have worn it every winter since and it has developed more character. I fitted an original M-41 Talon zip slider to it. It is an extremely comfortable and well made jacket. The Birman cat did not come with the jacket!

    Andrew. That does look good. Can you post pics wearing it please

    Was it a difficult job to change the zip slider ?

    I will see what I can do. Changing the zip is easy. First you just remove the stopper on the zip with pliers, take off the old puller, push on the new one, open up the stopper with a knife and reapply it, squeezing the teeth together with pliers!

    the jacket pictured is beginning to have that real deal look that only wearing a lot can get.

    It is breaking in nicely now and will get there in another four years!

    Jacket looks great! And you are a better man than me - I don't put any jackets near my cats. Yikes! :)

    Sadie is actually very good. She never scratches them, just nests on them if she can!

    Lovely jacket Andrew, breaking in nicely. I too have a ELC Perry B-3 but it’s got along way to go yet before it’s broken in.

    Great looking jacket! My all time favorite repro and looks like it's finally cold enough for me to wear mine for the first time tomorrow!

    Thanks chaps. I have owned quite a few ELC B-3s and this is my favourite by far.

    Here's mine, ready for tomorrow! I like the slight time-worn finish Eastman put on it...

    John, I'd gather they're all different from one another. Here's mine from a couple years back I've posted here before. I'll bet others are just as unique.

    Very nice, Andrew. The leather has loads of character.
