Even if she does divorce you, we expect pictures. That's how it works around here.
just sell the wife in the classifieds and buy more.
Sorry about the slippers and blurred final photo. My wife was impatient and pushed my phone too hard. The colour of the wool is less yellow than shown and the overall gloss is also less In reality.
For fit I am 5 10 and 170 pounds. The fit is relaxed so I could probably squeeze into a 40.
Fantastic stuff, and great fit. Looks perfect for the weather you've got down there too!
Yes minus 6 degrees C in Waitrose car park.
That is one gorgeous jacket!!!!
Nice .... I'm liking the seal on seal look
That is stunning! I really like that the leathers are such a close match color-wise.
Stuart's clearly softening in his old age... time was any reqyest for something softer or "more accurate" was met with a diatribe about "jacket queens" who aren't manly enough for LW. :lol: Looks superb. It'll be interesting to see how that glossy effect ages over the next few years. The ANJ4 is a sharp design.
It's a beauty, John! Fantastic.
How do you find the weight on the shoulders? I know you've said in the past that the ANJ-4 can weigh on and tire the shoulders after a while … and when I tried an ELC ANJ-4 in the mid-noughties, that was my immediate impression too - but oddly, not last year when I tried one on at RAF Duxford (which I really liked). I thought it felt similar to a B3.
I have only worn it for an hour or so it is quite heavy as are all these jackets time will tell I suppose. It is probably heavier than the Eastman version, but with the waist straps done up fairly tightly some of the load is taken off the shoulders.
Thanks for the pictures the jacket looks fantastic!
How's the waist fit? You mentioned that the waist was a bit big on your previous LW ANJ-4.
Fits fine. I would it a a largish 42
Good to know - thanks!
It doesn't get any better then that! Wear it in good health.
John, that's a beautiful LW. I don't think I'd miss the dark russet reinforcements of the early ELC ANJ-4. Seeing the collar on your jacket convinces me, I will opt for this over the M-445 any day.
Don't hang around materials are limited !
In your review on VLJ you mention the zipper being a bit light for the jacket. Is the zipper size similar to the LW B-2 jackets. I have a B-2 (which I think you owned at one time) and while the zip works fine it feels like a toy compared to the rest of the jacket.
BTW bottom line, was it worth the price? I have to admit I've almost pulled the trigger a few times this weekend.
Hi,no I just mean the puller tab is light weight. The zip itself is very smooth and plenty big enough.
Yes worth every penny.
