Looks like a Buzz. I had mine on this morning for our daily exercise walk. We went out a 06.00 to avoid people, did a six mile walk and didn’t see a soul.

Wow. I just received my ATF fleece-lined Tanker jacket! What a very pleasant surprise, thought it'd take a lot longer!
Ordered on the 8th, arrived a few mins ago.
First impressions... Great! medium fits beautifully! Super comfy! Excellent quality. I am a very happy house-bound VLJr.
Pics soon.

A couple of months ago I ordered a SOF Tanker from the UK (Kay Canvas - China made). I ordered a 44, in which I swam in, sent it back for a size 42, the guys were very easy to deal with. Here is the 42. As to authenticity, I don't know. The ATF makes a stunning Impression. On mine, I definitely would have liked darker knits. Oh well, didn't break me financially. Lower, I found a picture (2018) with a BR Tanker. I like this jacket. Even got some compliments in the real World on it. It's simple but stylish, and well made.

I have 3 x Buzz Tankers, I absolutely love them so always have stock on hand in case they stop making them! I'm normally a 46 and a 44 Tanker is absolutely fine. 26.5" length too. The stitching in particular is unreal, so well made.

Five, potentially six BR Tankers.. First and Second pattern in 42, Second pattern in a 44, Second pattern 42 with a 2nd Armored patch, Second pattern 40 with the 511th art and possibly a First pattern in a 44. I know I have the M-41 in a 44 too.. They are a versatile jacket.. Not sure they will ever stop making them. The price will only go up, that's for sure..

If you maybe want to part with a Second Pattern in 44, I might be interested ...
