    Replaced sliders on Magnoli jacket

    The only thing I didn't like about my Magnoli jacket was the shiney silver sliders on the straps. Now, thanks to that top man TK, I've been able to replace them with black ones! This sensitive operation was carried out with bolt cutters

    Much better look! I think that Magnoli's jackets look terrific overall. But the sliders are a definite weak point. The ones on the ToD for instance? I'm sorry but they're downright ugly.
    Out here not knowing a dang thing.

    Yes I never really understood the choice myself. Bright silver would have been the last thing I'd have put on an Indy jacket. They almost looked like plastic too. The brass coloured ones on the US Wings look like a far better option if black wasn't available for some reason

    Those look good. Are they blackened metal?

    They're just painted black or anodised not sure which. Fairly thin metal but do the job. I assume they're what they've put on some westeds or maybe TK sourced them specially?

    KT TK is my Stormtrooper alter ego...

    Those are some I found and bought a few. I think they are slightly to chunky but are a reasonable alternative I think. Better than shiney brass or silver anyways!

    I thought you had spent a bit too much time looking into the 501st, they are all TK this and TK that!

    Hate TK Maxx.
