Bought an Eastman (ELC) Havana Horsehide A-2 a couple of months ago which I’m very happy with. One of their own Labels. Leather quality and thickness, construction and details are great. After having seen my jacket a good friend really got the Alpha-2 bug as well. He received his jacket last Friday. Same contract and color. The leather is way thinner, feels much more dry. There’s a notably difference in overall jacket weight. He’s not amused. This is not a jacket, more like a shirt. We both understand leather is a natural product and differences/imperfections may occur. Anyone else having the same experiences?
