    As the UK weather isn't very wintery at present, I actually wore my GW Dubow 20960 today which I really shouldn't be at this time of year but looks like it's going to be another damp mild one again this Christmas, bummer !!!

    I've been wearing my Buzz N-1 every day since I got it and I'm mightily impressed. As warm as an original and I now understand why they used that particular cloth for deck jackets. I've been caught in very heavy rain several times and it just doesn't penetrate the jungle cloth and also dries really quickly.

    Toasty warm this morning in my Pike Brothers B-10 jacket (blue).. No time for pics this morning, but it's just another of the heavily-built, and historically inaccurate Pike Brothers B-10's out there. ;)

    **Copied from the 'What jacket Are You Wearing Today' thread at the 'Hat-Place'**....

    Picked this one up from my Cousin for a VERY good price. :cool: He purchased it on eBay, and wasn't satisfied with it for whatever reason. :rolleyes:

    This is a sweet, vintage, custom deerskin jacket, made by Custom Coat Co. Berlin, Wisconsin. It has the unusual feature (to me) of a knit waistband, and zippered MC-style cuffs. Also unusual because it's in the A-2 configuration of a one-piece back, and two-piece sleeves. Must have been quite the large deer. ;) Fits me like a bespoke jacket.

    This must have been rarely worn, since the shell and lining looks like brand-new for around a 50 year old jacket. The grain on the deerskin is out-of-this-world, and also sports Talon zippers all around.. I love the cut of the collar as well. I may post a short review on it soon..

    Excuse the stubble seen.. I'm growing out my beard some before styling / trimming..
