Same colour. The red isn’t to my personal liking tbh. The light knits make a good compliment to the dark hide. Reds make a contrast. A subtle difference.Nice - same color, or something new? I know it's not an aero, but with that dark seal leather, the aero red knits would look great.
Fear not, Hiltz is not in my plan. Hadn’t realised name tags were such a Marmite issue.Personally I think adding a name tag is the worst cheesy naff thing that can be done to an A-2, especially if it says V. Hilts, but each to their own.
Now if you were adding a Crown zip....and yes I know an ELC of this age my have a WWII Talon, but sell that separately...
I think your A-2 when properly restored will be worth more than £300. With that much patina and otherwise as new and with a new one however much ELC is charging today, I think £300 is conservative.
Credit where credit is due, that's super fast service.Sent the jacket off on Tuesday. Just had a call to take payment. Jacket is done and going in the mail today.
That’s service in my book !
Will post pics next week when i get it back.
Happy long weekend !
