Art,

which model are they?

I got my first pair last week and decided to get the UB 101's.... They are called "skinny", which they are definitely not...

I should have gotten the UB 401 "Tight", as they are closer to my GAP selvedge jeans, but they didn't have my size...got them from Cultizm, by the way.

Your right mine are the 101s skinny’s 14.5 oz and although my legs are twigs they fit more like regular. Mine have faded pretty well I’ll post a pic later

Glad my photo brought a bit of a laugh to the forum ,we need a few laughs in January, been enjoying the posts.
with ref to the weight of the barnstormer coat, it's a bright sunny freezing morning in London so thought I'd dig out my old 1930s/40s long grey leather coat I bought from a Frankfurt flea market back in the late '70s when I lived there for a year..... this one is heavy ! Not sure if it's military or civilian, has a buttoned side fastening, unfortunately has lost its belt buckle
So that's where you've been hiding all these years Herr Otto Flick!!! ;)

Cocker,

I have the thinner corduroy CPO shirt from PB and it's a decent shirt...it's just not a proper CPO shirt.

The one in my photo is from Fidelity, and it's just awesome. A thick and robust wool / nylon blend, very warm and tremendously versatile: Works in winter, with shirt and wool vest, works on chilly late summer evenings, too.

I got something similar over christmas, made by a swedish company named Sarva. Same principle, but with side pockets:

What's not "good" for a proper CPO shirt, except for the material? I also have a flannel one, but it's not the same at all as the wool one. Smaller buttons, shorter collar, etc etc... Pretty close to their Roamer but with 2 buttoned chest pockets. Still a pretty good shirt, though.

I’ve been riding out the cold spell in like fashion, Mike. Sheepskin sure does insulate. I even started to work up a sweat in mine today. Missing getting to wear an A-2 out and about though.

Yeah, I love being able to wear my woolly bully but at the same time look forward to putting it away
And putting on my other jackets, like my A2 or G1, a denim jacket.

Still wearing the Barnstormer. It's been hovering around 0 with snow and sleet all this week and the Barnstormer teamed with a submariner is perfect. Jumper keeps me warm, CXL coat keeps the wind and wet out.
