    bigger pockets on the lost worlds sale A2? how come?

    I bought a lost worlds A2 jacket on sale, I notice the pockets on the sale a2 seem to be bigger than the non sale jackets, is that normal? does anyone know how come?

    here are the 2 pages for comparison

    non sale: http://lostworldsinc.com/A-2_Flight_Jacket.htm

    sale (jacket is shown about 4 pages down): http://lostworldsinc.com/Lost_Worlds_Sale_Items.htm

    I don't know much about A-2's, but I'm guessing that pockets are a standard size and the size of jacket you purchased is pretty small by modern standards. I'm just guessing that the model jacket displayed on the site is a larger size and makes the pockets look smaller in comparison to the rest of the jacket.

    I think Storm about has the size of it (pun intended). Although, I wouldn't have noticed it had it not been pointed out. Still don't think it is that much of a difference. Really good price you got.
    Nothing matters much and most things don't matter at all.

    Yeah, that's probably right. A size 34 jacket with standard pockets, the pockets will look bigger than on a larger jacket.

    Not where I thought I was going, but probably where I need to be.

    As Baron says, all the pockets woud be the same size. Would Dubow (or any other maker) have scaled up (or down) the pockets to match the size of the jacket?

    Andrew is the man to answer this
