Slapping a tiny bit of conditioner on some of the leather this morning gave me the opportunity to grab some closer photos of the above B-3 for whoever wanted them. Interior and exterior light.Mild and sunny today. Despite not feeling great I felt I needed to get out so thought I would try taking a drive around the old airfield out the back here. The site has long history going back centuries, the airfield was used by several top secret projects during WW2.
I'm wearing an ELC RW B-3 apparently from hides especially selected by Gary in return for work by the original owner who I purchased it from. It had only been worn on a few occasions. Having lost lots of weight recently the jacket hangs on me now ....but won't be going anywhere.
I'm standing in front of an original T2 hangar. History was made here.
Back home now and very, very tired.

TimJust had to duck outside and check that the gate wasn't about to become an airborne missile with the wind really starting to crank itself up now. Jerry Sumpftarn '44 winter parka to the rescue, love using this coat to do anything manual when the weather is bad. No photo, it's pitch dark, winds are nearing hurricane force so not much chance of a pretty selfie.
For those who haven't seen it, here's the parka in calmer weather (btw these are terrific repros, colour, pattern, weight, even the little details like the "shield" buttons are excellently done)
Is this an ATF , or an S&M Wholesale repro ?
I was just browsing around their website and I don’t see them list anymore . I wonder if they stopped carrying them .ATF Burt.
Like all of the ATF stuff I've had this is really sturdily constructed which I love because if feels and behaves like proper military surplus kit not cosplay rubbish. I use it for physical work outside and it's brilliant, rugged and tough as old boots.
They do them in Splinter camouflage as well if that tickles your fancy more. They're sized just like originals too so get your normal size and you have room to layer under it as you should do.
