    Outstanding DC-3 photo!
    and from the rounded collar points, I'm guessing that's your ELC Monarch???:)

    Nice photo, cool jacket, fabulous plane and tough man!)
    Hey Jeremiah, please stop posting photos of your fantastic Eastman Monarch A-2 'cause it motivates me to buy one more Eastman Monarch A-2!) Every time when I see your Monarch I just can't stop thinking of buying one more Monarch!)) Seriously, it's fantastic A-2. It's my favorite A-2 contract.
    P.S. Though both your BK's are absolutely gorgeous too!

    J I do admire your BK A-2 especialy when you redyed it.
    What was the dye you used? I have a WW2 A-2 and a WW2 Luftwaffe jacket who could need a good repainting.
    Thx for your help.

    A pro dye which is an oil dye in a spirit base. Sinks into the leather good. Will react somewhat differently depending on the leather finish already present.

    Fiebings makes if. You can thin it more with isopropyl alcohol to get a lighter shade and build up from there. This dye hyrates the leather as well to a small extent being that it’s an oil dye.
