    Pilot,

    I’m sure you know far more about it than JC does, perhaps you should email him and let him know he made this one “incorrectly”

    As already admitted, I ( just me) newer saw an original from WW2 with these studs open ...What John makes is perfect and I value , respect his work, skills, knowledge a lot.
    Thx for the info.

    Dubow 1755

    Crappy fit pics may follow.

    Update: thanks to my wife here are two fit pics.
    The jacket is about 2-3 years old (don't really remember) and is being worn regularly in all types of weather and all kinds of "missions".

    Thanks, looks good, not crappy at all. Did you go for your normal size? Does it feel tight or restrictive in any way (lifting arms etc)?
    Thanks again...

    I followed Andy´s advice regarding the size - I guess he was right with it. ;-)

    The Dubow 1755 is my favorite contract. The combination of the dark seal and purple knits looks great.
    The fit looks good on you.

    Fit and jacket look sensational Earl. Is that Liberty? Different colour from the swatches listed here? Your looks similar to my ANJ3 in Victory dark seal

    Pilot, Gary Eastman had an original 2nd contract Bronco as I said listed in his book and the photo clearly shows a internal collar stud in natural metal finish not cloth covered as the earlier contracts were

    Received a note from BK a few days ago stating that my ANJ3 was nearly complete and would ship this coming week.

    Recently received the latest Liberty leather samples from BK. Looking really good. I am sold on the Seal... Love that neutral mid brown colour! The russet is very nice also (A Werber in the russet would be beautiful). These samples match the ones I have from late last year, so... pretty consistent.

    My jacket should arrive this week, so we’ll have a better sample of Liberty to take a look at.
