    Saw it yesterday. Maybe this is another collaboration between John and Dave?

    John never ceases to amaze me with his skill.

    Probably a logical progression for JC if he wants to expand his offerings of US flying jackets.

    Although it'll be interesting how he approaches this what with the huge demand already for his wares, you'd imagine if it's only going to be him doing this then this will blow his waiting times out even further. But maybe DD is going to be involved in these as well as zhz44 has pointed out? Would seem to make sense?

    One other thing, this will probably go down very well with the Japanese market, we all know how excited they get about USAAF/USAF cloth and nylon jackets.

    Frankly, I don't care about those places that make nice jackets and the largest size is a US 44 - on a good day! We need some USA made jackets in USA sizes for us Shrek look-alikes!

    WOW that's a really sharp looking B-10. Love the pocket details and the knit, mouton, and cloth colors look great together. Would love to see some cloth/nylon offerings from Good Wear.

    Roughly equivalent to the gestational period of an African bush elephant : 22 months, more or less.

    Talk about the elephant in the room, huh?

    Very cool. I have always wondered when/if John would do a cloth jacket. The wondering is over.

    I'm at the stage tho where I don't know if I'll live long enough to get a new jacket...

    .....or if you can afford one? Be interesting to see what they go for but surely they'll need to be similar to the high versions out there already! Blooming nice B10 that is for sure!!

    Yeah, both good points. My eyes are bigger than my budget, but we can dream...

    Interesting colour material (cotton I assume) on that B10! Knowing John's attention to detail I'm sure he'd have sourced a good condition original to base it on, it looks too as if it's been coated in a protector or similar or it that just me? Cracking jacket though, he's good that JC isn't he!!

    In the "About" blurb jpeg, it says that this is a test jacket and that the colour is browner than what they'd prefer and that they'll be using a more correct OD green colour. Interestingly it also says that they should have this model ready in about 2 months - so better get saving!

    I wonder if DD will begin producing these as well? Haven't heard or seen much from him these days. Hope alls well with him.

    Yes, DD updated his Facebook page with L2B jacket well ago. He also has 2 or 3 L2B jackets for sale on his Facebook page.
