    Tah. This tells me that a 40 should fit me very well.

    I've got an Eastman M422-A arriving in the post tomorrow. Excited! :D I'll probably need to return it for a longer custom size, but we'll see - they're a longer cut to begin with from memory.

    M422A is quite a long jacket by defolt, it usually fits better to tall men.

    Yes - you're right. I remember the guys at the ELC popup telling me that they don't tend to sell as many of the USN jackets for that reason - I guess most average sized men think they look too long when compared to the image of a flight jacket in their head perhaps?

    Finally, cool to fresh evenings, one finds great joy in the autumn up north. Rejoycing over the Buzz Rickson B-15C, size 42, unpatched... IMG_3173.jpg

    It's M422A' feature, not all G-1's family jackets were such long as M422-A.

    Checked. Yes, the Frame says RE USA 14 on the left bayonet, Frame Italy on the right... they were issued, so I didn't care...

    Oh, amend, I may have checked the wrong glasses. Those in the picture were old ones. I just checked the ones before me and they actually have a blueisch tint, plus no bayonet but regular rounded ends which go behind the ears. Also issued, in 2012 (shoulder shrug). Don't know. They work. I can see better:)

    Yesterday's excellent MA-1's review from Greg, the right weather and my day off today pushed me to wear my MA-1 this thursday on walk.

    This is Skyline Clothing Corporation MA-1 jacket, contract da-36-243-qm(ctm)-8922-c-61 from 1961 year. My lovely piece of early jet era :) very heavy sage-green nylon and warm thick wool/cotton lining.This is one of the first contracts with the orange liner.
