Just about to embark on my second budget G-1 / M-422A USN 'Fantasy' Jacket (1st attempt back in 2015, very close but no cigar). First attempt was a 'keeper' really but being in a ruthless mind-set at the time I moved it on (zippering final quarter of jacket caused a bit of mild leather pull). Regretted moving it ever since. Due to a forced reduction in activity due to C-19, I've saved a few coppers and gathered the usual suspects for another go (decent rust mouton, lining, repro buttons, Rack N Rib knits & a NOS G-1 Conmar zipper). And most importantly someone who I think can pull it off in terms of building the jacket. Looking at Seal Goatskin co-joined with the above in a fusion of G-1 & M-422A features with hopefully a USN 'tribute' type jacket at a budget cost as the end result (these days I'm not too bothered about accuracy, just a decent wearer). Completed jacket should hopefully be posted up mid-late June (this year). Fingers crossed Pictures below of completed first jacket & components going into the new build.
