Completely agree. I would thought the OG had them tbh, so was surprised to see it was on the updated one. That was what put me off my Beams one. Felt a bit flimsy and looked a bit too repro. This I feel strays just on the right side of ending up looking like Travis Bickle.

Cheers. Your fits were definitely a contributing factor to seeing how someone other than the END 'stylist' thinks it should look! Eye-wink

Has yours faded much/developed a patina? Just wondering as much orSlow fatigues have started too and would be good if it did the same.

Yeah lovely that and 100% agree on the epaulette’s. This is my biggest gripe with my Beams and another similar jacket I have. Actually got a quote from the local tailors to have them removed on both when they open again next month! Great price too Cool

I am tempted, but then it would cost more than the jacket did. Laughing out loud

bertoni has got a valid point though. liner makes it a much more versatile piece. you'll get much much more wear out of it with the option of a liner

Does the liner fit the 1st version? Think it says it only fits the newer one.

I've got a T5 Camper Van if that counts as a surplus vehicle for the weekend? Laughing out loudLaughing out loud

I will keep an eye out for the liner I think anyway. If the price is right, it also elevates the jacket as well.

I also like the M-1951, which I think has a hoodless version? May get it instead of the Six-Five I have.
