Be strong ... the dark side is calling you .o_O

But of course I buy shearlings in the summer , live in Florida and talk a lot of shit about being strong, so I’m not the guy to listen to;)
Vader... Is the dark side stronger?
Yoda: No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Just looked at the Bronson site -- nice looking pieces. Always eyeballed the U.S. Army mackinaw. ATF stopped making it a while ago.
If you look at the reviews section I’m pretty sure you”ll find a couple of reviews on the Bronson B-10 and B-15a jackets .

Both the Bronson and the Bob Dong B-10s were nice. Great value and well made. They are slightly different jackets in details and fit.
I read somewhere that ATF has revamped their B-10, so I'm keen to see how it compares to the above.

Good point .
I hope they come out soon.

I am glad that AVI is making a comeback and wish them the very best. I remember there was an issue with their old jacket maker that may have ended with some theft of their patterns. I know they parted ways and switched manufacturers. That was a very unfortunate situation.

I have a Bronson B-10 and I really like it. Very warm. The mouton had a few bald spots, and a button popped off in the first few weeks. For a cheap repro though, I am happy. The pattern is very nice.

Hi,
Could anyone on here be able to help me out with a couple of measurements for AVI G-1 jackets in a 40 and 42? I have the basic measurements off the website but would like to know sleeve length , front length etc. I emailed morten over a week ago but have heard nothing as yet.
Cheers.
