Couple of quick fit pics over a 3Sixteen hbt fatigue shirt.

This is an incredibly practical and versatile piece in my opinion. The alpaca lining is incredibly warm (just now I was watching the rugby and had this on over a t and an UHF and was toasty warm). I actually wear this more than my deck jacket at the moment!

The whipcord is an excellent fabric and works very well for use in a vest imo. Also, the alpaca collar is very soft and isn't scratchy at all (unlike the wool collars of a few Buzz Rickson pieces that I was eyeing up previously).

Hehe... Nope. Almost every other IH vest, and an N-1 jacket, but no N-1 vest. Tbh, I'm going to prioritise a C-3. Otherwise this would be mine...

@neph93  The reasonable thing to do is buy both!  ;)  :-X I will say that my N1 vest is probably my favorite piece of IH gear at the moment - it's that good.

I'm sure it is, and I'd love to own one. But it would be gratuitous, even by my standards

@Giles  any chance there is a XXL Khaki floating around Japan or in a random box somewhere in the corner of your shop?

I realize probably not, but figured it never hurts to ask...

Figured that was the case. Just means I'll have to be quicker on the draw for whatever H has in store for the F/W line up in terms of N1 vests.

Thanks for checking!

man, i'm really torn. I really like the khaki and the navy colors but can't decide which to go for. I'm leaning towards the navy since khaki will most likely show signs of dirt.
