FIVESTAR Leather ANJ3 jacket

Since i think the cut of a G1 is more practical than A2 but the mouton collar is kinda too warm for use in the summer i always wanted a G1 without that fur around my neck - well basically a ANJ3

Checked with @Shawn Ali and found an ANJ3 version on the 5Star webside.

Ordered one using the dimensions i got on one of my G1 jackets (manufactured by AVI) - got it - but thought it is too big. Not the fault of 5Star coz i provided the dimensions so i decided to order another one just a bit downscaled. You know how things are: maybe bystanders would not even notice the different in size of both jackets but sometimes you simply feel not comfy ...

After a "facepalm" from my wife (do you really need 2 almost identical jackets) i still find the fit of the later jacket better ...

Anyway ...

For the 2nd jacket i decided for an orange lining coz the patch i got for this one is fictious - the first ANJ came with the more traditional red liner.

Color-combo for leather, knitting and thread are the same with both jackets: seal with olive knits and thread

Quality of both jackets is flawless as far as i'm able to see.



the "bigger" 1st version



the 2nd jacket



Details



The patch is based on the "BUGSTOMPER" design from the ALIEN II movie as a part of the "Colonial Marines" equipment



Overall i'm really satisfied with what i got.

Both are quite good jackets IMHO. I had originally scrolled down the pictures and thought that the one you're wearing in them was too large. Glad you decided to down size. I'd be far too polite to point that out if you hadn't said anything. Mom would have been ashamed of me if I had.

no offense at all - i do not want to walk around looking like a kid in a oversized jacket and people just "shoulder tapping" me i'm more interested in real opinions

you are right ... - even the smaller one looks kinda large compared to period pictures ...

i take that as "room for layering" ...

Nice jackets , I agree in thinking the G1 or ANJ3 are more practical comfortable jackets
I think that’s why I really love my branded G1 and schott 184 a more civilianized version
With removable fur collar and liner.
Shawn and his crew really did a nice job on those jackets , and I’m loving the aliens bug stompers patch
