    Was wearing a Barracuta G9 when a guy arrived to spring treat our lawn and he asked if it was original! We got talking and transpires he's into vintage cars and clothes and mentioned he has an original 'flying jacket' saying it hasn't a label but claims it's an Anj4 he bought in 1980 from his mates Grandad, who had bought it in 1948 for £15 from a well known south London surplus store - said he was told that they had loads do Irvins at £10!! He's threatening to show me it but already said he's unlikely to sell even though it no longer fits him.

    The Irvin in my avatar had another life post war as well, as a 50's biker jacket. It has been dyed or boot polished black, and someone has painted BSA B10 across the back.
