I too believe you can only get a descent A-2 only from Eastman, Aero, Real McCoy, Buzz Rickson, Lost Worlds or even G&B.
The jacket I will present you here comes from a vendor that doesn't have such a good repuation as the above firms.
Of course, the jacket was a custom job. (I had to pay a little extra).
I am posting some photos so that you can tell me your opinion. Your opinion matters to me because some of you own good A-2 jacket and know better.
So what do you think?
