Thies, I think that's a cool jacket. Should be easy to wear, too? Is it blanket lined? Scratchy?
Thanks

The patch is an early work of Sean Collins. The jacket is ten years old, and I got it off Ebay... The seller was Barry Lyndon aka Spearhead Militaria aka Godars Inc.

Not sure if they still exist.

Back in the days they were the only option for me to get a budget early model M-41. The jacket is warm, huge for an Asian production, and therefore slightly out of proportion.... The sleeve ends and the waist are rather wide, for example...

Worn with a shirt it is not itchy at all.

Thank you Ties, it's great to sometimes mix up the leathers with some great cloth. A while ago I bought the book I have attached als there are some great air crew clothing combinations, pretty valid to use some items for contemporary life, as you did. Plus, the dimensions don't look too bad on your jacket, I think. And if it's comfy and non-itching, Bäm! Done!

Hi Greg, I will say that my BK's are a bit softer and a bit more pliable by comparison... that Liberty is simply amazing.
But yes, this jacket is breaking in very well... Wearing these interchangeably now.
As for shortening, I would not say so...

currently we are in the minus-Celsius during the nights but as soon as the sun Comes out it gets warm

due to that yesterday no leather but the USN dungarees made by ATF

got the set on their Discount side (pants 'n Shawl-Jumper for 59 bucks each)

top Quality for the Money - correct sizing (even though ATF usually runs biiiig)- just gave the set 2 or 3 rounds in the washer and use it for "around the house duties" to get a somehow worn look

Chambray and watchcap are BRONSON

Boots are Royal Canadian Navy deck-boots



don't breath ...

Thomas, may I call you Chesty from now on? Meant as a compliment as per one of my leadership favourites. Chesty Puller.

Sufficiently warm in the afternoon to switch from a B-6 in the morning to the 37J1 for the afternoon doggie walk...

Flight sim session to follow in the evening... I am currently deep into Spitfire flying (Mk.V mostly) and it's really interesting to see how one adopts the historic tactics just to stay alive - not even talking about becoming an ace here...
