    Hit if for six Burt, or if you feel it's worthy of a trifle more elegance than a slogged six, how about a beautiful cover drive to the boundary ;)

    Beaut B-10 BTW Tommy!

    B10 Spec # 3157
    A9 trousers spec # 3177
    ;) looks like the wrong label was stitched in at some point o_O
    So forget about the idea that the A9 is a rarity.
    Just a mistake somewhere along the line :)

    Yeah, me an Ken discussed that earlier in the thread. I guess when it was first published American Flight Jackets was fairly unique? But he clouds things himself by refering to both M442a and G1 as the same jackets for example.

    The B9 parka that is shown in Pinks and greens is quite obvious :)

    I observed that this new Aero B-10 has pockets that are sewn a bit further away from the waist knit than other repros and some of the original photos I can find. Is this an Aero style or are there original B-10s with "high" pockets?

    But your point about the exact spec numbers is still interesting, I just mearly wanted to make sure you knew about the earlier discussion. I come here, probably like all the regulars to learn about the small details.

    I think this is just an Aero interpretation. I suspect whoever drew up the pattern decided to move them up for practical reasons?

    The pockets on the originals were all over the place, height wise, we've been trying out various heights on the test samples, all within original tolerance.
    We'll decide in the next few days what the final production gap between pocket and waistband will be. We won't be influenced by any other makers repros however

    My personal preference, is for the pockets to be closer to the waistband.

    Whatever the finer points of pocket placement may be (and personally, I like the "higher" arrangement), this looks to be a really nice jacket. The darker colour looks particularly good.

    I hope that it gets into production in time for the autumn or winter.
