royalcrown33 Can anyone shed some light on my latest find? I bought this #usaaf #b10jacket #b10flightjacket thinking it was a replica. But it is fitted with an original made in USA #conmar zipper. Could it be an original? 1d
  •   bareknuckleboutique Label seems correct as well but im no expert 1d
  •   cheaterome About 10 years ago Buzz rickson did these. Look inside all pockets for cut off tags.Mine had it on the inside map pocket. Plus the front pockets will be very close to the waistband . Old will be old. It will feel old.the repro makers can't get the stiffness of the cotton fabric exact. 1d
  •   royalcrown33 @cheaterome Thanks for the info. I can't find any cut off tags in the pockets but the jacket feels too new to be old. But I never had a B-10 before.. 1d
  •   cheaterome Yeah they are great practical jackets. A collecter in chicago has a deadstock one in a size 42 . They are Super warm .I'm wearing my Eastman rough wear b-10 today. The repro toyo industries (buzzrickson) Stagg b-10, the pockets are about 1/2 inch too tall height and width wise which makes them go so close to the waistband. On a size 44 you won't even notice. Awesome jacket. 1d
  •   midnorthmercantile Label more than likely was black, looks like a repop 1d
  •   cheaterome @midnorthmercantile Both Stagg and LSL Garment Co. Had white labels in thier ww2 B-10 's LSL Even had white sheepskin collars on some of thier b-10 jackets not always mouton . 1d

nationalmilitaryheritagemuseum On this day in history, in 1944, the Eighth Air Force launched the first American bombing raid against Berlin. Fourteen U.S. bomber wings took off for Germany from England on the evening of March 4; only one plane reached Berlin (the rest dropped their bombs elsewhere and a few were lost to German defenses). Subsequent attacks in March were more effective. #todaysmuseumfind is First Lieutenant Ray Baker's WWII uniform. Baker served as a navigator in the 8th Air Force. #8thairforce #WW2 #WWII #worldwar2 #USAAF #usairforce #airforce #USAF #militaryhistory #themightyeighth 1d
