    Nice Collection.. always admire all the things you have and show... If I may ask, are you going to repair the arm on the A-2? Just bought a WW2 Cooper A-2 in great condition except a Little issue on the knitting...repair or not...?

    Yes - in the progress. WW2 Cooper A-2 ?????????????????? -> PHOTO pls:)
    If I were you, yes. Partly because I wear all my vintage stuff & am not going to sell it, so re-sell value is not a consideration to me. While something cannot be changed such as front length, I always alter the sleeves length to my exact fitting; I am more to the fashion side - not reenactment side though.
    At this point in time, proper restoration to me means to extend the Life of these historical pieces using best possible materials & method.

    Can show them to you in due time, but maybe I need them sooner or later...besides, not sure what to ask for it, since a very imposssible find and I bought them in a bundle... some of them need to be shortened if used for a jacket.
    If I put my expenses in the balance they might become a bit dear...No offence sorry.
