    Gents,

    It has been two and a half years since I splashed out on an A-2. I thought that the DD/GW Bronco sitting in the original box would be there for a rainy day. Spied a ripper and had to pounce... I keep dragging myself back into the jackets?

    BR RW 23380 in a 42. LOVE the colour and the grain on the left chest looks good. Might be Simon Williams' next art task...

    Anybody need a BR N-1 in an XXXL?

    Regards,

    Couchy

    Some say, he has a secret wardrobe of rare painted jackets. And that after a good session of pints, the itch to wear them all at once is so overwhelming, he drags himself around the yard until eventually, after an hour or maybe two, the desire fades to just one jacket with a trail of destruction left in his wake.

    We just know him as...The Couchy!



    Nice jacket mate, another one added to the collection.

    Nice A2, really like the colour! Is it my imagination or are those sleeves extra long/the body short - maybe just highlighted in the laid flat pic?

    Very nice jacket! Buzz A-2’s don’t seem to get much coverage here but this one looks up there with the best of them!

    Just rolled in. Measurements on the listing are on par with the last few I have had. I had a great 23380 around five years ago but it was squeaky? Rarely see modded BRs on Yahoo aside from some hideous merrowed patches. They are 'normally' 36-38 sized. 42 and 44 go for a bit more but this one was well worth the purchase price. Most of my BR sales have been flagged here. Search Buzz Rickson posts by ausreenactor. They will all be there. B-10s and Tankers outnumber the A-2s these days.
