    AeroMarine featured on "The Dig" movie

    It was filmed at Norney Grange (designed 1897-8 by CFA Voysey for Reverend Grane). We used to rent one of the gate lodges for a couple of years.

    Real McCoys Oklahoma

    That looks great, far better than the Menlo. Deerskin is practically my favourite hide now.

    Attire during lockdown

    I wear my Old Town wardrobe that I'd normally use for work (cotton twill overhead shirts and twill, corduroy, or moleskin trousers; jumpers or sleeveless tank tops). Practical and comfortable.

    New jacket! The Real McCoy A-1

    That’s true. It’s certainly a softer, more compliant hide.

    New jacket! The Real McCoy A-1

    I’d suggest that you take it out of the classifieds, keep it and have the comparatively cheap remedial fix to shorten the sleeves. I have slightly shorter arms and I have to do this often with Japanese jackets (the makers e.g. FW and RM equate a larger size 42/44 with tall/long armed when...

    Tradeoffs - Himel Bros vs. Freewheelers?

    Here is my Freewheelers Brakeman in Sleeper Brown Shinki horsehide. Fading well, I think.

    Tradeoffs - Himel Bros vs. Freewheelers?

    This is the Freewheelers Jet Black Shinki deerskin, which is one of the best hides that I have owned. Great depth of colour and a subtle fade with wear.

    WTS/Trade Vintage Real McCoy Type D-1 Jacket

    The port of Dover is a very large, static lorry park where the bulk of our food, meds, and essential supplies enter the U.K. (see also Farage Garage).

    Help to Date a Scovill Zip

    Can anybody confirm whether this Scovill zipper (on a Spiewak Excalibur civilian ‘N-1’ deck jacket) is from the 1940s or 1950s please? Thank you.

    Let's talk about Deck Jackets (my grail has landed)

    Incidentally, am I correct about the Scovill zip, or is it later?

    Let's talk about Deck Jackets (my grail has landed)

    Practically my daily wearer at the moment when walking the dog on the wet, muddy roads around the village. Mine was produced a little later and is not an issued jacket (an Excalibur‪ by Spiewak). My most practical winter coat.

    N1 Deck Jacket Fit Check

    I’d advise that you should leave it alone (including the sleeves), that’s how they fit. As has been said, it’s a practical winter jacket, so you will want room for another layer with long sleeves.
