Dmitry, where'd you find this?
In one small "army" shop in Ohio in 2012 (was on retrain). In the same place I bought 3d pattern, which was usually issued to USAF (with a short sleeve) from poplin (I don't like rip-stop fabric on jungle jackets). Both small regular size, but this one fits more like medium. USAF version fits more like small. Both was mint and both original. Love this things.
Comfy in the heat for travel, walks or for shopping :)

Yes, there are loads of these on the vintage shops here in London, depending how lucky you are.
Once things open up again, I will be on the hunt ;) These are great everyday wearers and great travel buddies. Very hard-wearing.

Not a jacket but the first outing for one of my new BR sweatshirts...after getting two USAAF themed sweaters last year at American Classics, it was time for some USN themed ones...
Got me this one and a SeaBees stenciled one...both are the usual BR quality and I can highly recommend their shirts and sweaters...

Yeah... Also there I bought a couple of fatigue OG-107 shirts with short and long sleeves made of cotton, also from Vietnam era. Great in summer with jeans. Large chest pockets easy for wallet and a smartphone, from time to time I wear this shirts. Not very often but always with pleasure :)

Aero A-2 this morning. Definitely needs to be tamed; in time it should be more comfortable. Thick Vicenza; a fair bit more than usual.

I have the same jacket and while the hide is awesome , it’s going to take a lot of “wear the piss out of it” and “beat the shit out of it “ time to develop into want we all like in a jacket.

Yours too I see? It'll get there. Seeing the recent Eastman warhorse I'll admit that's pretty tempting. :)
