    Cockpit (formerly Avirex) G-1 Classic "100 Missons" Flight Jacket Size 42 NEW with tags Measurements on Cockpits website. I just received this, but unfortunately its a touch big on me.

    Good Harrington or Barracuda Jacket..

    Ive also been on the lookout, but also dont want to spend a large sum. But it must be comfy. Any comments on which tends to have 'slightly' longer lengths, esp sleeves...? Somehow missed Merc. Been through few. Returned most, found some 'cheap', weird short sleeves... Tried on a Baracuta G9 at...

    Cockpit USA Classic 100 Missions G-1 jacket

    Thanks, but Im sure a 44 is one size too big. I've gone and grabbed a 42, currently on the way... Hoping it works... But it looks like you have some interest there. I have owned a couple of these jackets, and can attest to good quality and comfort. Worth it if you can get for a good price.

    Cockpit USA Classic 100 Missions G-1 jacket

    Thanks everyone, Ive owned a couple of 40s in the past, sold of... but recently tried a Heroes 42 and it was good. So, I think the rule of thumb, sizing one up from chest is a good call (Im 40") Im interested again, due to Cockpit separating the leather panel at the base of the zip, which is...

    A2 sizing

    Welcome to the A-2 I think that is a great fit for an A-2. Generally, most WW2 A-2s were worn this way, they had to be able to layer... I think lengths are good and this jacket will wear in beautifully over time. Further to what has been mentioned above... This is not the best design/ type of...

    BK Liberty HH alternative...

    Mark, I have a few BK Liberty HH A-2s, its my favourite leather. Vicenza is great, a little heavier yes, but not much so. In terms of ageing it really depends how you wear/ treat your jackets. I cycle mine, so they have not worn in like some, or lost any top finish etc... That said they are...

    DEVOTION the movie

    Not sure how many have seen the trailer, might have been eclipsed by Maverick, but its looking pretty good. Based on the fantastic 'true story' book of the same name. https://adammakos.com/devotion-book.html Jackets look ok, better than Midway et al. Likely some Cockpit USA jackets, mixed in...

    Bill Kelso Harleys Cafe Racer

    Funny to read this thread. For what its worth, I own 2 BK A-2s (among others) and they are both keepers. Ive been around a long time and owned jackets from almost everyone in the game, and these jackets are second to none. Period. All depends what you're after I guess. Politics and history...

    Eastman Star size help!

    Fit is a subjective thing, as are dissecting WW2 pics. Im selling my ELC Monarch because it feels a bit large on me. And its a pain, because the jacket is insane! But no amount of wishing is going to change the fact. I have 4 other high end A-2s that fit me beautifully, makes its pretty...
