Huge thanks to @Stuart.T for sourcing a replacement Crown zip and zipper stop for my BRxWG MA-1.

Here's what's left of the old set up . . .

@den1mhead you are more than welcome...It was hardly a chore! I'm already saving for a return visit  ;)

P.s was fitting the stopper pin easy enough?

It was straight forward as its an interference fit so it took some force / effort to drive it home
(Interference fit also known as Press Fit or Friction Fit is a fit between two parts in which the external dimension of one part slightly exceeds the internal dimension of the part into which it has to fit)

@den1mhead @Stuart.T

How do BR jackets fit in relation to IH jackets? Do you guys typically go with your usual IH size? Size up? Size down? I know this may be a loaded question since IH tops fit differently depending on materials. I think my ihm-20 is the only IH jacket where I sized down to a medium, but my ihj-69 and IHxSE od type III are both xl's.
WTB:
IHSH-129 size L (blue)
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-19

@gaseousclay I have two BR jackets that are both 40's and I have a number if IH jackets that are also size 40's. I'd say the sizing is very similar.

Nice @den1mhead !!  I see you pulled the trigger.  Tough to go wrong with a B-15.

Thanks @BloodnThunder and you are spot on when you say "Tough to go wrong with a B-15". However, as  you can see from the previous post, the jackets real owner is @Black Orchid and I can freely admit that it looks better on Jules than on me.  :)

@den1mhead that's exactly why I won't let my wife wear mine.  She'll look way better in it.

Does anyone own an XL or XXL in the regular indigo Buzz chambray and would do me a favor and post IH-style measurements? They're all over the place depending on where you go on the 'net. I mean I guess I own at least 2 IH chambrays but need another one because I'm nuts?
