1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Free shipping in Canada and the Continental USA.

    This jacket is amazing! Dated 1945 (see photo), but it is in perfect condition (no tears, moth damage, wear ). These were the famous Ike Jackets issued to US G.I.s at the end of World War II and also worn by President Eisenhower. A short, wool jacket with concealed buttons, waist adjusters and snap bottom, it was a trimmed-down, fitted and streamlined jacket. It reminds me of the famous Perfecto Motorcycle Jacket design. Very cool!

    It is a very comfortable wool (maybe wool gabardine), but not too thick or itchy (you can wear it with a short-sleeve shirt). Tag says 38 S and fits true to size. The model in the photos is 5'7 and 165 lbs. See measurements:

    Shoulder to shoulder: 18 inches
    Chest, from pit to pit: 20 inches
    Sleeves from shoulder to pit: 24 inches
    Waist, across front, from side to side (side belts untightened): 19 inches
    Length, from bottom back of collar to hem: 22 inches

    Please contact me for a shipping price if you live outside of Canada or the Continental USA.
