I can vouch for Aero too. I've got two A2's. A "Real Deal" and a "Bronco". And I'm 6' 5" (1.95 meter) and have monkey arms too. The sleeve length of both my jackets is spot on but they can do with a little more body length. But that will ruin the appearence of an A2.

I checked with Holly, they can adjust body length/arms length without problem to what would fit me best. I really hope I can put my order through before the end of the year ;-)

True. I had a J106 motorcycle jacket tailor made by them with special features and extra arm and body length. Came out perfect!

Are you selling the Stagg B-10 on Ebay?
The seller mentioned selling it since its a 44 and the seller is a 42?
I would be interested in the B10 if the price remains as it is, but what is this about this size descriptions.
Thanks.

I am the seller of the Stagg B-10. The jacket is too large for me. I wear a size 42 jacket while the Stagg is a size 44.

Off topic, but while we're on the topic of the Aero sale page, I noticed that size 40 ANJ-3 has a pit-pit of only 19.5! So one would have to go up at least two sizes?? It seems like their Naval jackets run really small.

Those are a tight pattern. I wear a 44 in a half belt and I think I'd need a 46 in sny of the USN jackets. They just are a tight fit. Same as how a lot of folks size down on a Hwm. Different cuts...

I would've thought that for a lot of makers, the stand was an unnecessary complication that slowed down production.

Yip. War on, high demand yo be met in a tight timeframe and likely a workforce expanded with less experienced labour... Simpler patterns a bonus.

At the request of @Joel Shapiro, here are a few updated pics of the 1756.

The socks are all part of the charm, sir. I've got my Good Wear coming up much later this year, and I'm already going through the contracts, torturing myself as to what I really fancy...
