yup, nice color, a bit of a darker russet looks always great...plus the nice fit...
With thanks to Brett, MY Bob Dong (does sound like a 70's porn star) jacket has arrived.....................On this lovely sunny and hot day.
Nice pick up.
And you nailed the fit !
Looks great on you.
Perfect fit! Hell, that looks good. What size ELC do you wear again Steve? 42, 44?
This Dong travels fast!!!!
Yeah, that was a good deal, that jacket. Fits you as if it was tailor made!
My monarch is a 44" as is my ELC BoB Irvin.
First recent great photo without using an elevator... ...
Super fit...great B D B-10...All...nice pics anyway even if most in the mirror and stainless steel cage... thx for sharing.
Tah. This tells me that a 40 should fit me very well.
How quickly mail work, guys
I've got an Eastman M422-A arriving in the post tomorrow. Excited! 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...
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.
My photographer and copilot for today
Whats the Co-pilot wearing? Thats an awesome father-daughter pic Dmitry!
Dmitry that‘s a real cool pic with your daughter!
