    Hi Bob,

    Thank you for the heads up on the jackets for sale. I just purchased the m-422a and I'm very excited to receive it! Always wanted to add a WWII original to my collection and now I have.
    Thanks again! :)

    FullSizeRender.jpg FullSizeRender.jpg FullSizeRender.jpg Hi @Big J thanks for checking in, my friend. This H & L Block pretty much completes my collection (we've all said that before! Lol).
    Awesome patina and fits very well. I posted up on page 320 of "What jacket are you wearing today" the day I first wore it. Really comfortable and in excellent condition for a 70 year old jacket!

    Glad to hear you're well!
    Ooh! That's a beauty, isn't it? Great condition and fit! You must be really happy with that!

    'Completes my collection'. Famous last words! I just bought a super ratty '67 C series for 50 bucks coz I know I would never wear a better jacket hard enough to get so much character! Like my wife says, 'NEXT!'.

    Wear it in good health Thor!

    Thanks for all the kind comments gentlemen. This jacket is very comfortable to wear (I had on a lightweight crew neck cashmere sweater in the photo, providing warmth without bulk) and, IMHO, it's got the right blend of vintage wear and structural integrity.
    I'm 100% happy with this latest acquisition (but I know I'll always keep an eye out for a possible addition to my stable of leather jackets!). :D
