    They did an offer several years ago to replace knits for the cost of postage only. I took advantage of it and they did a good job on my ELC house A-2. No issues. Some of the things folks here are reporting are not acceptable. In the unlikely event that I order another new jacket, I would still consider a BK jacket-I like the look of their AN-J-3, for instance.

    I've only had one experience with BK and it was totally positive. The horsehides used on the Rough Wear they made for me were some of the best I've seen on a repro. Grainy as shit and thin to medium thickness so the jacket draped perfectly. All in all, it was a good experience.

    Mikey, you won't be disappointed with their AN-J-3, reckon it would look a stunner in liberty, especially if Grants jacket is anything to go by, it look unreal

    Thanks for all the comments guys helps a lot

    Grant that turns back the tide on what BK can do for us ,I am on board ,that's one of the nicest A2 jackets I have seen in a long while and that is including originals . If Headwind could offer an A1 like this ,I mean the leather drape grain etc , they would be on the way to greatness .


    Headwind are you listening my friend . Cha Ching

    Thanks all, yeah it's a dope jacket. Unfortunately, it was always a tad snug on me, so Vic is now the proud owner. Fits him mucho better and looks badass!

    See some worn shots? I noticed the sleeves are one inch shorter than originals and GW (my newly acquired GW 1401 has shortened arms, and now looks like this). The leather cuff end sorta line up with the leather hem

    Then Vic is what we commonly refer to back home as a "lucky bugger"!

    yup, purchased it from grant, but sold it recently on greedbay. it was, as noted, super nice to look at, but fit kinda odd...at least for me.

    Oh, they noticed. Check out their Facebook posts of 2nd April. Adorable and predictable. The Donald Trump of the leather jacket industry.
