    I think if you go on there site and read the descriptions the B15-A was original material and B-10 is a modern material made the same way
    I assume they maybe only have so much of this material and like the Nos Talons they used back in the day, when it’s gone it’s gone
    Will jump to there site later but think that also accounts for cost of the B15-A

    Yep
    All three cloth jackets use different material
    B15 being End Zone Twill as was used by Roughwear for that contract and the A being Nos material and Nos fasteners on the pockets

    Just read the thread glad to see you went with Eastman. I've had both an Eastman and a Buzz B-10.... Eastman all day long and twice on Sunday !!

    OK.
    Will part with my twice worn B-15A size 46” and buy a BR equivalence instead...not happy at all with my B-15A from ELC.

    What is not good about it, I assume if it’s a recent purchase it’s made from original material and fasteners, can’t be many other makers boasting that
    I see what you mean about the label colour but I can’t imagine Eastman not making there label to that of an original given there research into these products
    You able to get some worn side by side shots up so the more knowledgeable folk can chime in

    Thx for it.
    Will not give it chance to get worn.
    Will sell it.
    Labels side by side ( BR B-10 vs. ELC B-15A orange tag are already in the posts).
    Thx anyway

    If you are planning on selling your jacket and planning on doing it on the VLJ forum please check and conform to the selling guidelines to give everyone an equal opportunity to respond.
    Good Luck with your sale.
    Thanks

    Thought it'd be interesting to see an original Rough Wear B-15A. Here's one in unissued condition. These are super warm jackets, much warmer than a B-10. B15AA.JPG

    I never received a response to my question so I'll ask it again.
    When was this jacket listed as being for sale? It was never listed in the Buy /Sell section. I'm specifically asking because I was interested in purchasing the jacket and waited for the listing to appear however it seems to have been sold in a side bar agreement.

    I think it never got that far, and no I didn’t buy it but someone’s got a great jacket
