    actually I think I already got a blue BRONSON in my collection - here are the pics - got the jacket 2 years ago and so far is the ONLY jacket in blue which matches my NOS US Navy BIB colour wise and from the print by almost 100%

    I also have some of those foul weather cloth helmets in various stages of wear and bleach in my collection and even there the jacket is a almost 100% hit colourwise

    Hi. The weave on the B-10 is not accurate. It looks much coarser, like an N-1. It should be a much finer cotton weave. The weave on a B-15 is different. It’s even finer again, with a sheen to it. Referred to as Sateen cotton I believe.

    The new Bronson N1s look fantastic, i’m In the process of arranging an order but struggling a bit with sizing.

    Thomas very kindly posted the sizing translation previously, but I know deck jackets are obviously designed to be bulkier and worn over clothing. I’m roughly 6ft, 38-40inch chest, fairly average build. I’ve got a genuine A2 deck jacket, which is 38 and fits perfectly, but had a Pike Bros N1 in their size small which I guess must be around a 36inch chest and doesn’t fit at all, while the medium felt more like 42 (with longer arms) and was too big. So as the sizing of this style of jacket seems to be all over the place, I’m really not sure what to go for. Based on Bronson’s sizing chart I was erring in a medium as they seem to come up slightly shorter and not as broad in the shoulder.

    Their XXL seems to be around the same size as my Buzz 42/X-Large N1. I've had a couple of their other jackets this year and their dimensions are seemingly bang on.
    I would check the measurements section via the link, just scroll down the page and it's there.

    I'll post up details and measurements of mine Soon as it's landed. If it fits then I'll be ordering one of the Khaki or Olive numbers!

    I ordered my actual chest size 44 which I also order from other manufacturers and fits perfect - so leave this "L" or "XL" away and rather check for your normal chestsize - should fit ...

    or whatdaya think "Cobblers"?

    Mine's on the way, I'll post up pics and measurements soon as it gets here, but yeh you're absolutely right T, the L/XL/XXL size indicators can be way off. Best to check the actual measurements particularly shoulder and pit to pit to check the fit.

    Thomas, the 2017 Bronson N-1's are very good, especially the Khaki version. Worth looking at.
