    Nice! On the "Materials" page, is this the standard knit colour or a lighter caramel shade?

    Thanks! That photo is what the Medium Brown looks like when exposed to a close range flash burst. They are actually darker in natural light:

    Hello everyone, we have a lot of updates to check out on the site! There is now a growing "Testimonials" section and some customer photos as well. There are more Greatest Generation Mfg (aka: Steve S.) Jacket models on the way. They will be posted very soon on the site.

    I will be using this thread for future general updates on the site.

    Light coloured knits do look classy IMHO :) also lighter caramel buttons as an option would look fantastic. Just throwing it out there :)
    Good Luck - looking good !

    Thanks for the comments guys!
    That seal A-1 next to the airplane actually has olive knits and a mustard liner. I think it turned out fantastic! A great looking contrast of colors. I will post some other pics of that one soon.

    Here is a look at one of our recent custom jackets. This one is made out of our Seal Goatskin and has Olive Green knits. It is our standard A-1 pattern with custom sizing and options:

    Hi guys, we got some cool new buttons recently. We have some new Brown button options for our 37J1 jacket. Chocolate brown main buttons with Chocolate Brown NOS casein inner buttons.

    Also, a previously mentioned huge find on some NOS 1930's George Morrell Casein buttons in the original boxes! We have both the main buttons and the smaller inner buttons.

    Another completed A-1 goes out to a satisfied customer. You can see his review on our testimonials page: http://www.headwindmfg.com/testimonials.html
    This one is a size 36 our smallest size. Note the pocket size looks big because of the small sized jacket. You see this on originals where contract jackets use a standard pocket size regardless of the jacket size.
    Our A-1 is available now at our Spring Sale price of $475.

    We have procured some fantastic new buttons recently we are very excited about!
    100% genuine light brown Italian Horn buttons to go on our A-1 jackets. They are a great match to the originals with the light brown color and thin wide rims:

    Also we have a big stock of genuine Bone backing buttons as seen on both original A-1 and 37J1 jackets from the 1920's - 30's.

    These new buttons are available now as an option on our reproduction jackets, along with the previously mentioned brown Casein buttons that we recently procured.
