Shawn,

Matching olive drab knit to the cotton twill shell, and brown vintage mouton collar... By far the most common combination for B-10 jackets in WW2!
If you can get vintage brown mouton for the collars, that's would be best.
Talon zips are fine.
Personally, although alpaca is authentic, I don't think this matters so much. Rather use something soft and comfortable in the right grey colour.

Notice how the olive drab knit matches in colour to the olive green cotton twill shell, and the soft brown vintage mouton collars...

Have a look through this thread: https://www.vintageleatherjackets.org/threads/question-to-b-10-experts.21618/

Also. Please consider a grey/ brown fleece-lined B-10 as an option. A light fleece is quite practical.

Have a look here - www.atthefront.com/WWII-Tanker-Jacket-with-polar-fleece-lining-p/usutkf.htm
ATF's fleece lined Tanker gets many great reviews for wearability.

Do you have an idea how much these will cost and when will they be available?

Thanks

I quite like the jacket that Thomas posted at the top of page 3. The colouring kind of reminds me of the NASA jackets in gold. I know its not an authentic colour but it is kind of cute.
