    Five Star Leather Jackets

    I just picked up this 5-Star Bronco A-2 repro off eBay, lightly used, in conic (cognac?) brown goatskin. Perfect fit, light yet robust leather, excellent workmanship. Their conic brown goatskin is a perfect match for an original WWII russet goat A-2 that I used to own. Great weathering, patina...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    I just picked up this Bronco A-2 repro off eBay made by FiveStar. Lightly used condition, made of russet goatskin (I think FiveStar calls this color Conic/Cognac brown). It’s lightweight yet feels robust, the fit and finish are excellent and the aged russet goat looks and feels exactly like an...

    Anyone know much about Brill Bros.?

    I agree with @El Marro; each G-1 has its own character and provenance. There’s just something cool and unique about a military-issued flight jacket!

    Anyone know much about Brill Bros.?

    The Brill Bros. G-1 that I have in my collection is early 1980’s-vintage; it’s very thick and heavy (probably cowhide) with wider-cut sleeves. The materials and overall construction seem very robust. I haven’t researched the Brill Bros. company but as others have stated, they did have several...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    1980’s vintage Willis & Geiger G-1 (with sweater & thermal shirt underneath on a frigid cold day). The aged, dark russet goatskin & faded mouton fur collar exactly match a WWII W&G M-422a that I have in my collection.

    The Deck Jacket thread.

    I just picked up a Schott N-1 deck jacket with duck down insulated lining. It’s super-warm, very comfortable and has a great mix of classic and updated styling. Nor are they overly expensive. They’re available in green or blue. Highly recommended!

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    Another day, another G-1. Got this one off eBay for 80 bucks, made by the San Diego Leather Factory (1980’s manufacture). Great fit, amazing workmanship and truly superb goatskin! Not 100% milspec accurate but close enough, with great additional features (hidden side-entry pockets that are...
