    pretty often it pays out to have old workmates/pals all around the world ...

    I just received a new repop B10 outta china which a fellow workmate brought straight from Beijing

    the jacket was made by BOB DONG - a "competitor" for BRONSON

    I just snapped a couple of quick pics - as you see some of them in the restroom - and want to share with you guys

    the first impression is awesome - really like her and was exactly after one with the red knittings which Bronson as far as I know does not produce in my size (44)

    will give her a more detailed examination tonight at home and keep you guys updated

    don`t worry about my serious face on the pics - just didn`t want to smile in the restroom in case somebody would step in ... : )

    did not had time to try `em on but first impression ain`t bad

    finally I ordered what the call "Navy vest" - made out of djungle cloth like N1`s with the same hooks - 2 each side - which als where used on early deck jackets ...

    That's a great looking jacket! Any links to this?
    How does the quality feel in person?

    That B-10 looks superb Thomas and the fit looks bang on, nice one.

    Those USMC strides are very cool too.

    The name of the manufacturer is brilliant too, sounds like a 70s porn star :D

    That's a good looking B-10. I especially like the (wine or rust ?) knits. The jacket fits you very well for a China repro. Most of the time they are too small for the size they list on the tag. But yours looks great.
    Roll on down the highway brother! ;)

    Thanks - I looked after I posted and found the Chinese site. Sadly, all too small, but nice grab!

    The first link is to an eBay seller named Xinwater. Earlier this week I purchased a B-15a and a L-2b from her. For the prices quoted I took a chance on her XXL size for both jackets. Once they arrive I'll post some pictures and do a short review on them for you guys.:)

    Yeah, I saw that. Typical of the Asian builders, but until they start selling more overseas, it likely won't hurt them...

    Oh well ....... in that case they may be a little small on me. If that turns out to be the case, then there'll be a few decent deals in the "For Sale " section this month.:(

    will keep that in mind - actually I was considering to take all the rest of the clothes off but was simply too cold ... - and was the only available room with such a large mirror ... :)

    Well ... they just may. Let me show you why. A few years back I purchased one of the first B-10s coming out of China in a size 44. With the exception of some bogus patches that were put on the sleeves, the jacket fit perfectly and was super. The linning the knits and the fabric was very well done. Now I know I'm going to raise a few eyebrows here, but I have to say I like the jacket and the fit better than my Eastman Rough Wear , which was always a little short on me. The China B10 is also a little heavier ( read that warmer) than the ELC Rough Wear. In fact I like this jacket so much that my ELC B10 is currently up for sale on EBay. And with that here is the one I'm keeping;
