    A-2 in chilly weather? Throw on an M41, silk parachute scarf and boom, no cold weather! Off on the bike.
    BTW, the A-2 is my trusty Eastman Monarch with painted brown Talon zip. #zipnerd

    A good use of layering, any particular shade of brown for the zip?

    Thanks Steve. Actually, Vic (aka Silver Surfer) matched the brown enamel to an original painted Talon and painted the puller for me. He also gave me a little extra enamel for the stopper box. I carefully painted the zip teeth with gun bluing. Yep, zip nerd alert!

    Thanks, it’s as good as an Eastman, nice slightly yellow colour shearling which doesn’t really come through in the picture. Heavy as well for a Willis and Geiger.

    A little bit brass monkeys here this morning, -4 Celsius but -13 with windchill, submariner and Irvin did the trick.

    Sorry Steve no photos, it was completely dark and I was wrestling with two nippers ;)

    Cheers Brent , I’m very pleased with it . Lighter than the b-3 and easier to wear due to the cape skin facings.
