    Thank you. It's my day to day work jacket, where knitted collar/cuffs look a bit too casual.

    A2 made by "NOBLE HOUSE" - was a testrun which was never officially sold - personalized by TIES whilst fetching my new car (AMG E63S / V8 Biturbo 4matic)

    Hi Tom,

    sweet car and a great color, too!

    I had to look twice, though, if you had sold the A-2 to a guy with hair! Looks good!!

    Indeed, that's a great choice of color!

    I was about to do the same remark as Ties, didn't knew you had hair and almost didn't recognize you! :p

    Yes, it is.

    I was looking for a lightweight nylon jacket... I have had in the past two Buzz Rickson L-2A / L-2, when almost nobody except for the neo-nazi / hooligan scene was wearing "bomber jackets". Never really wore them, sold them long ago.

    When nylon came in style for the "mainstream", the Rickson's were long gone... the Alpha is probably a lame substitute for the BR L-2A, but IMO it looks quite nice with khakis and a shirt. Nice straight torso, slender sleeves.

    Best regards,

    Ties

    being "bald" / shaving head for almost 20 years out of just laziness to cary all those "hair products" with my on my numerous bizz-trips around the world - think back then I have been one of only a few showing up to business meetings with suit/tie and a "shiny" head

    now that it gets more common to "shave" and I do not need to travel that much anymore - and out of a request of my wife `n daughter - I decided to "regrow"

    still need to find a style that suits me ...

    today wearing Buzz Rickson L-2 which I purchased couple of days ago via our forum from "pilot"

    would not have weared still without hair

    I was looking at one of these. No nonsense, no bank-breaking, common sense MA-1 for summer. Nice.
