Happily. Will get on it this weekend.Would you be able to send some detailed measurements? Intrigued to know how it fits.
OK, sorry to misinterpret you...I did never say that I wanted the 37J1 to fit the same way! Seems in my haste to finish the post before I left office after a 12 hour shift I got my wording wrong.
Similarly, with a button-out liner and water treated shell, I think it would be an absolute category killer in today's repro market!I do not understand why the USN did not keep the 37J1 in use for a longer time. If they added some Alpaca lining as in a B-10/B-15 or the N-1 deck jacket and do a different Collar as per M-422a maybe they would have had a great jacket to furnish their aircrews with...at least in the ETO.
