I arrived at work today and was gifted by the sight of a man hauling a large DHL box. Turns out it was my B-10! Well, I must say I'm baffled by the quality! Anne did an amazing job with it, it's flawless! The shell is indeed dark, the 3 last pictures of tommy's are close to the shade, but it's defo not TOO dark. Just right to stand out a bit. The medium brown knits are offering a great contrast but not denoting too much. Craftsmanship is excellent, as with my Aero A-2. Ken's advise to go with a 44 instead of a 42 was bang on and will allow for layering in the winter. The only downside is, I think I should have gone for at least 1 inch shorter. It is ok with regular waisted trouser, but covering the pocket entries on a high waisted pair of denim. I'll try to get some pictures in natural light when possible, as well as a couple fit pic.
