• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

Thanks. It's a roomy size 42 that I've had it a couple years now. I'm not big on research, but was told the original owner was a big wheel who commanded a bomb group. One of these days I'll do some digging and see what I come up with.
knowing the history makes it super cool mate and I agree with the cables being a bit blousy, my Eastman cable in a 42 but goat only feels comfortable when I’ve got a hoody underneath... not nearly as nice as yours

I'll probably get run off the forum for this but I have to say that my Missus gets a bit iffy when I ask her to take a photo of me so that I can post it up on an online forum for other guys to critique which goes some way to explain why I don't make a habit of doing so. I'll probably also get chastised for not appearing clad in this or that flight jacket. What the hell.

Well I know what you are talking about ...

My wife also gets that “specific” look in her eyes when I ask her to take piccies which I wanna share with a bunch of other blokes on a forum.

But since I allowed her to watch “over my shoulders” when I typed a message she’s ok - although once in a while there is that suspicious look again

Today my father wore his Lost Worlds G-1 (he hardly wears it) to the office and I thought I might take a picture of it with me inside(of course in the wash room...) as we have the same size. It is a nice one. Very heavy but buttery soft. Now its back to my Aero Bronco. But: G-1s rock!

Finally some real leather weather! 49° when I got up this morning and supposed to only top out to 68° And sunny this afternoon so a bit borderline later but for now I get to wear my 42–1401P roughwear by ELC . Have a great Thursday...

Nice...

I am lovin' the ELC leather zipper pulls now.. Much better than the 'forever' loose leather strip ties.

Took the little fella for a walk before bedtime here to tucker him out. Was pretty nippy just 1 degree Celsius and shoehorned a submariner under an A-2 for the jaunt. First time I've done this and was good and cosy. Those old submariner jumpers are damn warm and the A-2 cut any wind gusts. Pair of A-10s as well and I was as snug as a bug in a rug. Sorry no snap as too busy chasing after the little bugger. If I don the same tomorrow though I'll endeavour to take a pic.

The hide is our Bull Run Buffalo Hide. The break in time is extremely fast with arm creases showing on the first day.
