  1. Man...that is a deep rabbit hole...it might help to know the intended use...casual wear...re enacting...collecting ...Flight Suits makes a mid range A2....5 star leather lo range but getting great reviews....Bill Kelso...high end...Cooper is the best bang for the buck...get the Saddlerly line...which is the USAF issue line...good luck

  3. This looks to be the main data tag for the aircraft..versus a part..... A forum member..also my supervisor on F4Es was able to remove...er..found the main data tag on our F4...very cool item to have
  4. Thanks Ken... The washers are not painted, and the sweat band has the adjustment buckle, not pictured...I bought it with the sweat band positioned as such, but I think the seller did that to make it look complete, the missing section was stuck up in the webbing...so I do not know when it was damaged and re-positioned.... Thanks for the input all...My main concern was if the NCO stripe was legit as it was tape...so I appreciate the confirmation...
  5. Was a running joke between a dealer friend of mine and I ...if he wanted to sell his WWII USN hammocks......he should stencil them USS Arizona...was always just a joke though ...No disrespect to the men of the Arizona
  6. yep...looks like an old LL Bean or Avirex 1970s era jacket... someone spent a lot of time on...replaced lining, knits etc...looks like a reenactor special... I kinda dig the label though...someone trying to fake? or just wanted to spruce up a new liner

  9. Heat stamp..under a lens looks to be 305A..not 355A...
  10. Fs SB Schlueter HS 355A with remnants of original chin straps...and what I think is the 3rd Infantry Division markings on the left side... In black...all I have seen on the net is the blue and white marking... Did not notice the stencil until I got home....found at the local flea market... Any input on being the 3rd? And WWII style stencil? Thanks for any input

  12. Thanks guys...yes AA9 is on the side...and if 13B is a seat shop...is it an ejection seat bottle? 2100PSI... Thanks for the info guys
  13. Thanks Ken...the forum is pretty good about jumping on fakes or not correct, so I figured it was at least ok...good to know the tape thing was not unheard of
