I can't seem to find a pic of an original Superior Togs B-10 out there... My Google-Fu fails me. I look at it this way, I am NOT an reenactor, I'm not going to be subjected to an inspection of the knit color on my jacket (at least not in the 'real-world'.. Here is another story), and I kind of liked the color contrast on my Bronson B-10 with red knits. IMO, unless you are sporting an original B-10, ALL repros are indeed 'fashion' jackets, each with their own +'s & -'s regarding period accuracy. BR has authentic features which Eastman lacks and vise-versa. So unless one is taking a trip back in time for a military inspection, or is an avid WWII reenactor, WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE! I can easily solve the 'issue' by using green knits on a BR Superior Togs when the red eventually fails. Then, I have the look & style I like for awhile, and a damn good repro of a seldom seen B-10 contract (with the pocket flap shape I prefer over the RW) after the green knits are installed. Winner-winner-chicken-dinner for me at least!
