@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!

Grabbed the AVI A-2 today. This is the 2019 version (currently still on website). Very light and comfortable A-2. I had the seal knit replaced with mid brown 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.

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.

Oh you know, ELC B-15 for a good part of the day. And now for the weather...

Today we had a dry, although chilly morning, so it was on with the ELC RW B-3 and out in the '43 Jeep for a quick trip to have a chat to someone a couple of miles away, then a quick spin around the neighbourhood before heading back to catch up with a few things.

Waaaaaaaaaaaay too busy to faff about posing for photos.

Perfect Irvin weather today. -4, light dusting of snow, snow is shining on the mountains. I'm as happy as a sandboy.

No jacket photo, you've seen it a thousand times before.
