I returned home and here + 6 C. So tomorrow I’ll finally wear my Buzz B-15C :)
We had that awful thing when after the thaw yesterday it shot down to minus overnight so when I got up this morning it was mirror ice everywhere. After breaking my finger the other day falling on the stuff I was wearing the Irvin on the top half and some crampons over my boots on the bottom!

Grabbed the AVI A-2 today. This is the 2019 version (currently still on website). Very light and comfortable A-2. I had the slightly darker seal knit, replaced with seal knit from MASH.
Byson UK did the work, which was… ok.
I don’t think this version is as Bronco-esque as the V1 and V2 jackets, but its my favourite. So easy to wear.

@ties70 If I'm was you, I would wear this jacket only (no FS ;))

Although for creativity and patches... GW would be a of course a pity to spoil.
But the Doniger is so much more comfortable ;)

Honestly, this GW is absolutely fantastic, no doubt about that...but if I was looking for a high-end repro again, I would go for a contract with rotated / set-in sleeves. The GW is for show, the FS for comfort!

Can you share the link of the mid brown from Mash? I could not find it on their website

Comfort is very strong argument, I agree.
It was because of the rotated sleeves that I chose my Star among the other ELC repro contracts and despite a fairly tight fit will allow hand movements in car and even with yoke (once I managed to fly in this jacket).

My mistake, they are the Seal - 95-07-4032 Cuff Knit & Waistband Set, Seal Brown, Repro.(M.O.C.)
The seal that comes with the jacket as standard, is a darker seal from Larry and flightjacketknits.
