  1. Five Star Leather out of Pakistan is getting some traction over at the VLJ. Seems to be a good jacket at a decent price.
  2. Maybe just hang it up outside and let the sun do some fading?
  3. Anyone else make good repro tiger stripes besides Moore Militaria? He seems to be out of stock at this moment.
  4. It does look cool, but with my OCD, I'd probably have some sort of mental episode.
  5. Haven't seen their current run, but I had one of their first ones and it was OK. Kept me warm, looked the part. I have a Buzz Superior Togs B-10 and it's a great jacket. Here's a link to HPA where I bought it: https://www.historypreservation.com/products-page/brands/buzz-ricksons-usaaf-b-10-intermediate-flying-jacket-superior-togs-co/ Now, that being said, on vintageleatherjackets.org, some guys found these jackets: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/2015-male-short-design-US-air-force-B10-cotton-jacket-free-shipping/1229407_32525147374.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.MXpGc5 From the pics from that guy that bought one, they look pretty good.
  6. My friends son wants to patch up a jungle fatigue jacket like his Grandfathers. He's not into living history, reenacting, etc; this is just something he wants to do and wear around on his own. Moore Militaria has some kick rump repros, but they're a bit out of his price range. Originals in his size are too pricey, too (kid is 5'11" and 190 at 17!). That leaves the Rothco brand jackets. What's the scoop on those? I see that Moore sells them on his website as a low cost alternative, so I'd think they aren't too bad. Has anyone purchased one? Thanks!
  7. I know what you mean. I have DCUs in my closet right now. Wouldn't take much to change out a few patches and suddenly, this uniform belonged to a dude in some Super-duper paratrooper unit. As Cap Camouflage Pattern I said, it's pretty easy to do.
  8. That'll be interesting if it happens. I have one of each in my collection. Oops.
  9. Dave Witmer was in my unit. I don't think I met the guy, but I heard of the name. When I joined in 1996, there were a lot of old timers that had flown the EC-121 ("Back in the Connie days"....and then a hush fell over the crowd) and did the whole Commando Buzz deployment to Thailand.
  10. The Guard is like that now. We had dudes there were prior Navy, Marines, Army and Coast Guard.
  11. http://www.imgrum.net/user/hawkwood_mercantile/2504451522/1282639335971491650_2504451522 These are Indigo, but he has the standard HBT color too.
  12. Before I retired in 2012, I saw a guy wearing one. He was a new dude, so I imagine he got it from his last unit. I still don't think anyone was issued with them in my old squadron; but then again, we're ANG.
  13. Looks great. It really did clean up nicely.
