    Mine are BR, but I would happily wear an Eastman. I think the UK prices new are about the same, but, from what I can tell, BR aren't that easy to buy new in the UK at the moment. On the other hand, you could always buy one from Japan via something like Rakuten, and your size is more in line with what's available from there.

    In the past I've owned both and find the ELC B-10 a more faithful reproduction. Just my two cents.

    If you were willing to compromise a little authenticity for a much better price, you may want to take a look at some of the Chinese made B-10 jackets. Some folks here on the Forum are saying good things about both the Bronson and the Bob Dong labels. I personally have a B-10 and a B15A by Bronson, and I'm here to tell you they are both damn fine jackets.

    I have BR's premier B-10, the Endzone Twill Olden-Dennis, in size 38, if you're interested.

    I have had both a BR and an ELC B-10. I still have the ELC. I love this jacket. I bought a 40 Long and its the one jacket, that I have kept after all these years. Highly recommended. The BR was top notch for sure, but the ELC was just 'that' much more authentic (as Grant said) and comfortable for me... the fit of the BR was also slightly roomier (size 40 for me).
    I also preferred that the ELC knits match the cotton drill, whereas the BR's knits were darker.

    ELC B-10, although I really like the look of the new Good Wear Leather pattern (the pocket flaps are more sculpted).

    Yes to RMJ! Still dig my 10 year old RMJ Stagg B-10. Not so impressed with their newer ones.
