    Eastman Purchasing: Direct from UK, or Through HPA?

    I'm thinking of getting an Eastman A-2, and am wondering if, as someone who lives in the US, should I buy direct from Eastman, or should I go through History Preservation Associates? I assume there would be advantages going through HPA, as communication, shipping, and returns might be easier...

    cockpit usa or us authentic

    I have a G&B Mark 43, and I purchased the G&B Air Force A-2 for my dad. Both are great jackets, and you can't go wrong with either one. The Mark 43 leather is tough as nails, although I did have to send the jacket back because the lining was deteriorating after only a few years - the only...

    B-Beautiful in a B-10..! (The ultimate American Beauty cloth flight wear)

    The B-10 is a great jacket. I bought one from Aero a couple of years ago, and I love it. Much warmer than an A-2, and much more comfortable to wear. In fact, it's such a great jacket, I wish some of the manufacturers would consider offering alternatives, such as a version with a cloth collar...

    Magnoli Adventure Boots - Krunch's Review

    Ooooh, those stitchless boots look really nice! I think I'm going to have to place another order one of these days. Magnoli, do you keep the customer's foot sizing information from previous orders, or would it have to be submitted again? Anyway, since we're revisiting this review thread I...

    Magnoli Adventure Boots - Krunch's Review

    I just want to add that I may have misspoke regarding the stiffness of the leather. The leather might not actually be softer than the Aldens, but that the construction of the Magnoli boot led me to perceive is as such. If you look at the first 3 pictures, you see that the Aldens have...

    Magnoli Adventure Boots - Krunch's Review

    Today I received my Magnoli Clothiers Adventure boots (Alden/Indy clones), which I had ordered during his recent $220 a pair sale. I ordered on May 12th, so it was only a three-week turnaround. As a made-to-measure shoe, I followed the measuring instructions as provided on Magnoli's site, and...

    WWII Theaters of Operation... Which Do You Prefer?

    Great Question Great question, Paddy! Obviously, I'm a big Army Air Forces fan in general, with most of my attention focused on the 8th Air Force. But what I'm very interested in is the American "silent service" of the Pacific theater. I read everything I can about the US submarines, their...

    Shocker: US Infant Mortality Rate

    In a document called Twenty Myths about Single-Payer Health Insurance" (PDF file, page 23-26) from the National Center for Policy Analysis, this stuff is pretty much debunked. A lot of interesting stuff in these 4 pages that's worth reading, but this paragraph struck me in particular...

    MY ALLERGIES ARE KILLING ME!!!!

    For those who use Claritin, there is a much cheaper alternative. At Costco, they sell their own version of Claritin called AllerClear. They both have the same active ingredient (Loratadine 10 mg), but instead of paying $31 for 60 tablets (50 cents/pill), you pay $12 for 300 (4 cents/pill)...
