    @Smithy You pointed out the biggest flaw in my thinking! Cannot rely on secondary source and must dig deeper to primary sources. That being said, still a fan of the rust knits. Hopefully BR can either prove it or just say it's a fantasy, like the khaki deck hook jacket.

    For some reason I can imagine the look on the sales reps face when asked to look at the source materials for some of their more contentious jackets...

    A rep has spoken on another forum and it was apparently much less professional than that.

    All the original B-10s we have seen are not pink- knitted either so is that also no guarantee that no original pink-knit B-10s ever existed?

    They were issued to the desert crews who had the pink Camo:

    I was following this discussion already for quite some time and as per my personal impression it‘s finally gone into a direction where the question is whether BR will ever show some evidence.

    I think there are plenty of specialists here in the forum - some of you guys even produce jackets on their own - and none so far is/was able to show any evidence nor ever seen a red knitted B10 „in the flesh“.

    So why to expect that BR actually is able to proof the existence of such jackets? And on the other hand side will they ever admit they did wrong in producing repops with red knittings?

    I have to deal with Japanese almost daily and one of the toughest things for the ones I know is to do so and take responsibility in case of a failure/mistake. So far their way to deal with shortcomings was always to hide them. Well i‘m Part of building up a whole factory here in Mex with Japanese partners.

    Anyway I think BR does NOT have a „magician“ with a cristal bowl and found evidence if even here on the forum noone was able to find any proof. Maybe a colour Photo which we already also had on the forum with a discoloration or so.

    Bottom line for me: finally even if BR would have any evidence in their possession they still would not discuss such a point with a single collector.

    Just my 2 cents ...
