I had a couple of questions about some military jackets and I figured I would put them in one thread instead of starting two at the same time. As some of you know, I am currently having the sleeves on two of my jackets shortened by Dave Sheeley. As I do I searched around for his work before and after I chose him. While searching his ebay I noticed that he had a G-1 jacket that I had never heard of before. Has anyone heard of the Sheeley Parachute Co. G-1? The most interesting detail is the fact that the stitching is done with silk thread. I had not heard of that on a jacket before. Does anyone know of other jackets like this and jackets sewn with silk thread? I'll have a new thread up to discuss the results of the sleeve shortening as well. Should be done this week. The second topic/question is about the wool/alpaca lining on the Buzz Rickson B-10 and B-15 jackets. I've been needing a warmer jacket in the morning for work, but I want something that I actually like the look of and these are my two top choices. The only issue is that I'm worried about the lining being itchy or uncomfortable. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm sure @HPA Rep has some insight too, but I'd also love some experience from other owners.
