What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

does anyone know which waistband is specified for the AN 6552 ? Mine has two ply like an A2 but I’ve seen pictures of a version made by buzz with the rib-rack waistband. Or does this differ between contracts?
My original has the rib-rack, just as a comparison. But maybe other manufacturers started switching up?

Come to think of it, my original 1951 G-1 has the rib-rack, too.

Hello,

My Bogen AN-6552 has A-2 style waistband in a very nice reddish/orange color, like brick.

Here's me after a spin with the Triumph, that Buzz N-1 is very fun to wear for riding in this cold air.

Here's a quote from John Chapman's CD that answers the question:

The features noticable on Bogen jackets are an A-2 style waistband...

FWIW, I find that CD to be indispensable.

It’s honestly too hot for a jacket today ..but .. just to keep the thread moving,
It’s an Aero of Scotland Vincenza Horsehide repro of the original WWII Aero 15142P contract in a size 46. It’s a very comfortable 46, that can accommodate wearing a warm sweater underneath. ( the right cuff is there it just got sucked up into the sleeve ):)

Nice, I have the 15142-P Realdeal in russet with brown knits. Bought it in 2005. How prices have changed since then. Had it fitted with NOS Talon when the factory copy zipper went bad.

Those “real deal “ Aeros were decent looking jackets with a little wonkyness thrown in here and there, duplicating an original WWII Aero issued A2. But like most of the manufactures, the prices have gone up over time .

It's very nice - it wouldn't be yours, would it? ;)
It's a possibility. :)

It's pretty funny in that I completely forgot I'd sent that to John to use for the documentation so many years back.

Last year I was looking through the DVD and saw it and thought, "Wow, that's the same make and model as mine. Wait a minute..." :D

Yeah, it's hell to get old. :rolleyes:
