    Pretty damn neat, as long as you don't have to wait 2 years for one. Seems like an item like this could just be made in the specific sizes and sold.

    I've been wanting one of these for awhile. Definitely in navy blue. I'd prob just go with an alpha tho, based on current budget. Seems like an easy to wear style. Not as committed as an n3b.

    I did like my Alpha L2B, it was an easy wear and flatters the wearer.

    That's what I was hoping. An off the rack per se. Not sure how though. I assume he's making by hand but who knows.

    Not really my thing to be honest. I wish he would do more civilian jackets!

    If only John had some B-10 or B-15C in the making, with custom options, that would be awesome!

    That's interesting, I realised from Facebook that Diamond Dave is also making some L-2 repros. Are they pretty much the same things?

    John does several different half belts, a café racer, two Cossacks, and a Grizzly. He's got a decent range of civilian jackets, and they cover most of the bases. I just don't think that they're as common as his military pieces.

    They have worked together - I believe DD is/was an apprentice so to speak with JC. So maybe it's DD who is making these. DD has skills, so I could see this being done by him in some sort of collaboration? Just guessing though - nothing but that.

    @ButteMT61 , my bank account is already hating you!! Dang, I sincerely do hope production time will not be rwo years, and that John will offer some degree of customization for the sleeves and body length!
