    A great collection of Jackets!
    I like the A1 under the Irvin.
    Must have been one hell of a cold day!

    Not really. I wore the A1 to go by train to meet the seller up in London. I kept it on because it was the easiest way to carry it home. Grant has it now.

    Probably the best B3 I have ever or will every own. Found it at an auction in a country market town. Sumptuous merino sheepskin. Went to Dublin for a while but I knew it would come home eventually

    Are those Perry tagged jackets sequentially numbered ?

    The early Roughwear B-6 I have has a pocket tag saying no. 0053 size 44. Presumably
    each size on the original contractor jackets having it's own sequence.

    It's been a while, but I don't recall any B-6 jackets. They had a size 38 and 44 Perry type B-3, the latter I bought at half price in their January sale. The A1 jackets they had weren't reduced that much and a little bit disappointing in terms of patina. They told me they were discontinuing Eastman stuff ? Fashion outlets like YMC seem to change gear on a regular basis.

    Keep saying I'm not into shearlings but see your pics and then think hmm, maybe! I'm thinking the less bulkier B6 is nice and would poss get more wear - to echo what I've said here before, it's rarely that cold enough and with no dog to walk I'm not sure aB3 or Irvin would see the light of day very often to justify the outlay, lovely jackets though!
    M44uk, your Roughwear B6 is really nice!!

    A B-6 is a great jacket for just what you described. When you combine it with a heavy sweater it can handle some pretty tough weather.

    Clearing out my photos from the disreputable photobucket site I came across this photo. Taken in circa 1990, the first ELC I owned. A terrible photo but a good jacket characterized by soft feeling fleece but still being of substantial weight. Satin brown exterior finish with 1" added to the torso.

    Eastman went through a period after this in the 2000s of using a wimpy light brown fleece before increasing quality again in more recent times.

    The jacket was written off a few years later in a motorcycle crash :-(

    Looks like a good combo with the sweater and a B-10 on a snow day.
    Cheers

    B-6 mixed batch, presumably an ELMC jacket

    Never saw those. Perhaps a ghost contract to a shop
