Because at some point you want to discourage big people from wearing your stuff. It's a poor brand image given all the middle aged dad bods in military reenacting.I understand the argument that a 50 uses twice as much leather as a 36. But why the 34 and the 48 are the same price, and the 50 has to pay a high price.
Hey JanI was just wondering that the other day. I know it’s a low priority, compared to the leather and shearling offerings, but I’m looking forward to seeing what Five Star can do with some of the late-war flight jackets.
A regular B-15 (as opposed to B-15A, which I received from Bronson and am quite happy with). Right now the only options for that jacket are BR and ELC. If Shawn has the materials for a B-10, the only thing standing between him and a great B-15 repro is a pattern.Hey Jan
Sorry to jump into the middle of your conversation but what models are you thinking about when discussing late war jackets ?
It certainly would - very warm. Seal goatskin would be my choice, as the pattern is basically a G-1 with a plain back.interesting.
much more interesting to me: ist there any leather B-10 Version out there? I know it is far from authentic but I guess it would make a nice jacket.
