    I recently missed out on one of John's sale jackets, a combat clone B-10 based on a Good Wear Leather Coat Co. pattern (http://www.goodwearleather.com/pages/sale_b10_0001.html), but have changed my order for one of the next batch of these. There are some nice details on this contract and the pocket flaps are a little more angular/pronounced than some of the other commercial offerings.

    In the meantime, John has produced a very fine B-15A from a pattern used by Hudson Garment Co.

    As I stated in the 'cloth' section, JC certainly knows how to make a damn fine repro, the master maker for sure!

    Not generally available yet (this is a prototype), but soon I believe.

    Woahhh, great jacket, very well made...no doubt.
    Just asking, is the Oxy mask tab ( leather triangle) unterneath the squadron patch?
    Love this jacket!, would order one unpatched.

    Interesting point you raise there...on originals, would pilots remove the tab before having the patch stitched on, which would seem to make sense, or would they just put it over the tab.

    Or just stitch it over with the patch, hiding the tab....there is anotherone for the oxy. clamp.
