Does anyone have leads on jackets that are analagous to the MK3 RAF Cold Weather Jacket? They're rare and expensive and hard to find in the right size for me. Hoping to put this together in time for PAX unplugged, but beginning to despair! How hard could it be to find a cloth work coat with epaulettes, right? Ha.

Well, checking eBay for terms like 'cold weather jacket' or 'field jacket' will yield some loosely similar jackets, including some vintage US Army jackets that do have a storm flap, a big collar, and epaulettes. They tend to have a longer torso or body section, but that could be cut & hemmed.

You can check your local Army / Navy surplus store, if you have one, and the local thrift stores / flea markets as well.

I should be getting an inexpensive used Cooper A2 leather flight jacket so I thought an Alien conversion would be nice.

Parker's jacket used the dark shoulder patch, correct? Who has the best right now? Magnoli or some other source? I'm going to mix it up and use their Gold Bullion wings instead of the blue embroidered. Just assume I'm a former Capt.

Is there a good source for the officer division pins?

I read through the thread but now I can't find the info on the stencil. I think someone here had actual physical stencils they could provide and not just a file to take a sign maker. If that's the case, and you still offer them, can you let me know?

I figure I'm never going to get a Mk 3 Jacket that fits me (need a U.S. XXL and I don't think the Size 8 will do it) at least I can go the leather jacket route.

I haven't read every post so I don't know if this link to a blog post with some good costume pictures was ever posted. Some good shots here

A Japanese fashion company has made a replica of the RAF Mk 3 jacket. The cuffs are wrong and there may be other details that are off.

I have no idea how to order this in the U.S. The only sites I could find where in Japanese so I don't even know the price.

Still, I thought it might be a potential resource for someone. (And if anyone has a lead on those recent UK repros I need a XXL)

I've been trying to find information and reference material for the "gold wings" patch worn on Brett's jacket but haven't been having much luck... is anyone able to point me in the right direction or know of where i could find one?...
Yes , I did as did others--it is Bullion thread embroidered Canadian Army Para Regiment 1970s or earlier basic jump wings...inverted with a Weylan-Yutani Engineering pin in the middle. You can find some infrequently on Ebay or such.
