    Lookin' sharp Grant. I had a 2nd pattern Buzz tanker and I loved it dearly but I just couldn't live with it. The holes at the end of the sleeves were just so tight that it felt like the circulation to my hands was being cut off. The knits were fine. Just the ends of the sleeves where the knits join, and I don't have big hands or anything. Totally spoiled the jacket for me. Has anyone had similar issues with Buzz tankers ?

    Thanks Peter. I only own the one Buzz jacket and find the sleeves ok; then again I'm a skinny mofo.

    I have to agree with other guys, Grant. Nice jacket , this suits you very well indeed. And if you purchase these Dehner's (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dehners-Ta...015700?hash=item440e610614:g:d3gAAOSwyNNZkKda) you'll be one serious mofo...;)

    I looked at one of those a couple of days ago and asked US seller if i could make him an offer but he didn't reply, i recon he didn't want to sell out of US. These boots were later sold for 225 bucks (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dehner-Tan...084349?hash=item1a36c5d47d:g:12AAAOSwimhZ09W2).

    that was my experience, skinny wrists. Also, I love this jacket but I prefer a more olive green color than the almost tan. I am not saying anything against the tan, just a personal preference. There were many shades of colors of Tankers in WW2. The BR's are very superbly made!!!!
