    I admire Buzz Rickson for some of the eccentric creations they come up with but this one is just wrong. B-15 Modified's look right and they were done officially but I'll bet Buzz have found a photo of just about the only B-10 with the collar removed and copied it. And what's going on with that waistband ? What do you guys think ?

    What in the wide world of sports is that all about? Waistband is like the wool A-1's, and looks 'orrible IMHO. Bleuch.

    No way I'm ever gonna buy that. It doesn't make sense, even knowing that BR likes to invent a fantasy could-have-been type of flight jacket every now and then.

    Looks like something Grandma fixed up for little Johnny to wear his first day of school.

    No, it's just their own design variant as part of their Aviation Associates line; it's kind of how they imagined a repaired B-10 might look. They have to keep coming up with new stuff and they know the Japanese market better than anyone on here...we can just ignore it. :)

    Not for me. But I'm glad there is a market for this jacket in Japan.

    you nailed it buddy

    anyway I have my doubts that they might find even in Japan - those guys usually are super-extra-mad about realistic highpriced repros so I think we`ll find them somewhen for discount price but even with a discount I won`t buy any of them
