Do you guys know where could I buy knit replacements for a B10 and a A2 jacket ? Sleeves are kind of short on these jackets and I would like to replace the existing knits by ones that would be a little bit longer.

Thanks

the ones he sells look like the regular size. I would like to find cuffs that are a little bit longer.

I actually have a Cockit G1 jacket that have 3 1/2 inches long knit cuff, so I know they exist.

All you know from that example is that Cockpit make long knits. Their stuff is synthetic and not accurate but maybe they will sell you a set of long knits?

Talk to Shaul at U.S Authentic. The G-1 that he made for me has abnormally long knits (3.5”) which I absolutely hate. Never imagined that someone would be looking for this, but since you are he may be able to help you out.

Hi! Total 1234, try this company from Japan - MASH. I ve deal with them in the past. Their service was great and they reply you promptly.
Here is the link to their website: http://www.mash-japan.co.jp/oversea/index.cgi

Hope that helps!

Where are you based Toto?
I second all the above. Both Larry over at Flight Jacket knits (lb4041j on Ebay) and MASH make good knit.
I have recently done this exercise with my AVI G-1, still have to 'propper' post pics, juts got it back. Had knits from Larry installed. You can have them installed so they do sit a bit further out and longer. Won't get an inch. These now sit very much like my Cockpit G-1's knits did, but these are of better quality. My sleeves are now a very comfortable length.
