    I would like to ask your opinion regarding the A-2 leather hanger.





    Should we include an authentic A-2 leather hanger on our Two-Way Pocket model and our Slash Pocket model? Civilian flight jackets sometimes had a "loop" hanger, but not a leather hanger that is sewn through the back of the neck. The loop type hanger sticks up, and you may feel it rubbing against your neck. So, we wouldn't want to use that. Many vintage jackets that I come across did not have any hanger. I think that it might be best not to include a hanger for our jackets, except, of course, for our Army Air Corps model.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Chris personally I hang my jackets on a good hanger and I know most other guys here do too. It's a nice feature but I wouldn't miss it if you lost it. But if you told me you were lining your jackets in 40 mommes of gold silk lining fabric you might get my attention

    Makes no difference to me.

    As Simon says, we use hangers

    Never use hangers either - fold it and stick it on a shelf.

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

    A great hide is a great hide.
    Seen some great and not so great examples of horse hide, steer, goat.

    Looks like nice jackets, any chance of getting Talls in larger sizes, like a 48 T?

    Triple-d,

    Please take a look at our measurements page:

    http://aerialstar.com/measurements-page.htm

    What would your jacket size be, and what would be a good length for the sleeves and back?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Could you do the Slash Pocket A2 with the pockets set a little lower?

    Weeeeellllll.....looking at your sizing chart, and measuring a known good fit A2, looks like adding 1inch to the sleeves, and 1 inch to the back.....should be about right.
