    Thanks Big J. I'm looking forward to its arrival next week (delayed by the snow) but I have to admit that I'm still having a hard time believing that I pulled the trigger on this one.

    Ken has very generously made a jacket for me to borrow, using their very latest pattern. It's on its way so I should be able to post photos very soon.

    I have some questions regardnig ANJ-4. I intend to get red sheep skin reinforced with russet or maybe black goat. The second option looks more appealing to me, but I have not seen such combination yet? The other thing that I am interested is proper back lenght and the last thing what do You think about tapering ? The B-3 has more chubby look so I guess that tapering is not a case for such jacket, but for ANJ-4 maybe?

    The loan jacket was a good length,it came down below the waist so covered the lower back. Tapering was not an issue but remember this jacket would have been worn with shearling trousers which were bulky.

    You could ask Aero whether they'd be prepapred to do you a special order with black goat reinforcement panels; my guess as to the reason why you've not seen one like that as of yet is simply that most folks want to buy one that stays accurate to the original military spec.

    Very nice LB. The front is fairly short, which is probably accurate for the authenticity, but does it cover your belt?

    The collar comes way down in front so the 25 inches more than covers waist line/belt.

    John, are talking about your B2? I've seen yours posts about that, you mentioned it was very heavy and stiff. Was the leather 4 oz or 4+? I've ordered Stuart's B2 but haven't decided which thickness would be better for the jacket to be sturdy enough but not to weigh like a tank. I would say 4 kg is too much.

    No a LW Anj4. I bought another and it's superb.

    Although I have a Lost Worlds AN-j 4, I just got a used one from Eastman(ebay item 201471394653). Price was quite right so I could not pass it up. Also I am puzzled by the Eastman sheepskin grain.
    I'll post impressions on how it stands compared to the LW one.
    I'm also curious how ELC sheepskin feels (never handled one).

    That would be Paul's jacket, one of the first using Warhorse trim but retaining the snaps.

    That's right his name is Paul. Is he a FL member? I don't remember a user with alike id.
    The design with snaps seems a bit strange. I saw in other thread some OG pieces having also snaps. Was this part of the spec?
