This is my first post on this forum, so break it to me gently if my images don't work, I'm just posting picture URLs and hoping their links work. As for introductions, hello, I am Matt and I like firearms and clothes.
I thought I'd kick it off by asking if anybody has any idea as to what kind of jacket the Manfred Von Richthofen (the Red Baron) wore in many of his famous photos, or where I could obtain something similar. It's apparently black-or less likely, a very dark brown- with a black fur (or shearing?) collar. It's double breasted, and the leather is pretty soft looking. My, it does look handy in a cold climate. http://www.briggsenterprises.com/bluemax/mvr1916.jpg http://www.leisuregalleries.com/richthofen2.jpg http://www.earlyaviator.com/archive/...hofen_Voss.jpg http://www.flieger-album.de/assets/p...en%20%2302.jpg Again, tell me if my images are SNAFU at all. I know that WWI isn't exactly smack dab in the middle of the golden era, but there is a certain golden era feel to the flying aces of the day.
