Anyone know a source for a leather ww2 style USN leather nameplate other than mash or eastman, theirs seem too pricey to me, I have not bought one for years am I just out of touch with current prices.
I understand your point Grant if this was an expensive jacket I would pay more but I can't justify spending $51AUD for a Bronson jacket that cost AUD$110.As a tribute to one of my favorite USN aviators, I had MASH make me a John Thach of VF-3 name tag for my old repro M421A. The leather used is the proper thickness, has some nice grain to it and is wearing beautifully. IMHO, if I'm going to the trouble of having a name tag made for a jacket, I wanted the closest to what was made wartime.
