A couple of suits and trousers came as well  8)

The B1 suit, is , i think , unissued ??  not one sign of wear ,the HBT still has a "sheen" to it . The AN-S-31 suit is a better example than the one i have , so the " filler " i have ,can be surplus to requirements now .

The A10 pants , i think ill be wearing them this Winter !! :D

The A9 pants shown are what some of you that know me " right up Carls street !!!"  im sure these are unissued , again the "sheen" on the material is unbelievable for 70+ year old clothing !!  as are the suspenders that are on them !

I'd say your roll is outdoing mine! :)

Interesting to see the white outline AAF stamp on the A-9s.  Hadn't seen that version before on A-9s

Interesting.  I learn something new about this stuff every day :)

The marked on is LSL Garment Company.  The unmarked is Stagg, although I have an NOS Stagg pair marked with the same as the LSL Garment pair. They're on my MTO bomber guy at the moment.

The B1 suit, is , i think , unissued ??  not one sign of wear ,the HBT still has a "sheen" to it . The AN-S-31 suit is a better example than the one i have , so the " filler " i have ,can be surplus to requirements now .

The A10 pants , i think ill be wearing them this Winter !! :D

The A9 pants shown are what some of you that know me " right up Carls street !!!"  im sure these are unissued , again the "sheen" on the material is unbelievable for 70+ year old clothing !!  as are the suspenders that are on them !


The man is on a roll!  Carl does your wife think it may be time for an intervention?  ;D
