I have two BR B-10s in 44 that I am trying to sell... Nobody is nibbling... Keep lowering the prices too?
Ive had about 5 jackets for sale for the last 4 months , all of them reasonably priced but no takers. Listed a couple here, the rest on EBay . It’s just the way the market is right now. I refuse to give them away, so I’ll just sit on them until someone shows some interest.

As already mentioned by many... VLJ is no more the place to sell...
I had ( have) 8 almost unworn 46“ from ELC, RMC-Japan, GW‘s... Not listed here anymore...
Same for WW2 jackets and watches..

I do like this RMC Japan Staggs although sadly they are silly money from the UK store.

Curiously their Stag model had a white label with brown (as per original pics I can find) text until this year, but now has black and gold and I wonder why that is, if anyone knows. Regardless a fantastic jacket.

Thx a lot, got it from Japan during a trip there. Also, the ginger color fleece is a non standard feature and IMHO more like the WW2 originals ( seen on am. photos).
I believe this B-10 is not avalable in RMC UK, never saw one in their catalogue.
Regular RMC Japan price is arround 500 Euro, but searching a bit one can get it for less.

And I’m still looking for a size 40 BR Oldin-Dennis, it has a Crown zip you know!! And B-15 type cloth, a sort of transition model...

Try yahoo.japan auction or buyee.japan auction...best place for buying these.., 40” jackets of all sort are quite easy to find in Japan.

One of the good places to sell all prime jackets larger than 42”...compared with VLJ.

They have had them Pilot (out of stock currently) but aroun £700 depending on exchange rate. Have a look here https://www.superdenim.com/uk/the-real-mccoy-s-flight-jacket-type-b-10-olive.html

I had a 38” Stagg black label from WW2...too small for me...sold it.
Bought this one from RMC Japan instead...no difference in make and contruction nor quality if compared to my ex original WW2...RMCJpn B-10 is a truly superb jacket.
Older BR - B10 are great as well ( sold one here a few months back) . Recent are far away from the older versions.
ELC’s B10 and B-15 (A) are great, however in some they use ELC marked zips and studs...which is a bit of a pitty if as best as possible authenticity is regarded and sought after.
Only recent B-15 (A) from ELC are more like WW2 originals IMHE.
