    For the record and for anyone considering a repro of this contract, the thread colour
    is grey-green.

    I’m probably asking a question that will make some shudder, so apologies, but could anything be done to clean the metal parts up? Or just wear and use the jacket? I’ve never hankered after an original because of it looking (and pongin’?!) 70 plus years old, I like ‘em looking like they’re used through the 30’s and 40’s, but if I could find one looking as nice and clean as this I just might be tempted!

    I would say just leave the metal alone. The discoloration is just cosmetic most of the time, and it adds patina that shows the age of the jacket. You could try nevr-dull but I'm not sure if you would want to get that on the leather so you would have to be careful.

    It really does look great now. Are you planning to wear it?

    So far only worn it indoors. Don't really have any plans to wear it outdoors, not going anywhere
    that might be a suitable occassion.
