Im letting a few bits go as I need to downisze ahead of a move next year., and first up is this, purchased a few months ago from @58panheadfan, who described in his posts the history and details of this jacket better than I ever could, so Im just going to copy and paste his info - I hope this is OK. Heres goes -

"Introduction: Jacket was originally refurbished at Zip Stevenson and later sold to a reseller. I got it 2nd hand. Unfortunately the lining was worn and torn. Therefore I decided to relining by professional. It was time consuming and $$. The new lining material was sourced from an old stock and is as close as original incl. insulating material. I let the original United Carr press studs in place."
