    Burt,

    it is the largest size they make, a 44.

    It looks ok, but one size larger would be more comfortable.

    Best regards,

    Ties

    Gotta love the mountains at times...(Despite the Purgatory I consider my town to be) 46 F degrees this morning. PERFECT!! Again, giving my "new" Aero AN-J-3 a workout: :)

    Great to see, never get bored of seeing this jacket. Can't wait to get my hand on mine. Seal liberty, mid brown knit, should look similar to yours.

    After hitting 23 last week, the temperature has tanked here over the last few days in the sub 10 degree Celsius region with wind and showers so the B-10 has been getting used, even the ELC Irvin got dragged out again a couple of days ago.

    Today the temps were pushing double figures and I pulled out my WPG A-2. It's not a GW by any stretch of the imagination but the pattern is damn good, the goatskin drapes like a WWII one and it's shockingly well made and put together. The knits are something that let it down though but I have a set of mid brown knits from Larry so if anybody can recommend someone in the UK or close to Norway to fit them, I'd be very appreciative!

    @Smithy , that is a wonderful jacket! And you were doubting the length of THOSE sleeves? Please don't. Spot on fit!

    Looks as good as any high end repro which proves “ it’s the man who makes the clothes”;)

    Smithy, great jacket! Perfect fit. I'd recommend Byson Leather in the UK... Not the cheapest I guess, but they have a lot of experience with vintage flight jackets. I scoured around for the best people to fit my seal brown knits (also from Larry), to my replace my Cockpit's.

    Looks like you took our advise and just worn the hell out of that jacket. I also bet you crumpled that thing and threw it in the corner a few nights.
    Well done !
    Looks awesome!
