I was certainly not being sneaky. I was very forthright.
Dude, this is a train wreck of a thread...
Take a deep breath, chill out and start again.
I’m sure you’ll make more friends around here if you start by not insulting other members right off the bat.
haha funny sneaky man you are
Has anyone owned one of these A2s as advertised by OP? The goatskin does look nice on the pictures but 750 USD for a non-original pattern goatskin A-2 seems like a lot of money to me, you can get an US-authentic for like 400 and USA is well-received here on the board.
I can’t believe I didn’t see this thread yesterday. It makes for great breakfast reading though!
I love this thread.
Heck, the What Price Glory goatskin A-2 is surprisingly nice for just $155:
Nice Jacket, thanks for the heads up.
The marketing company that SM hired has no basic understanding of the clientele of their products! It’s insulting to our intelligence to juxtapose a repro (that is meant to appeal to the astute) with an obvious historical image & call it an “emotional context”.

I'll be dammed....I finally looked at an A-2 thread and it didn't disappoint! LOL.
The jacket looks not bad but more like just a usual generic mall A-2 jacket, except pricing. Considering that its strange emotional marketing strategy mentioned above looks quite funny and ridiculous, esp on this board) There are lots of members over here on TFL who are well-educated in repros, A-2s incl. Hope the thread starter has already understood that)
A-2s are easy to wear, I've grown to like them after not having understood the hype for 5 years of leather jacket addiction.
I wonder if this thread was a trial run of the OP’s sneaky marketing strategy. If so, I wonder how it’s paying off and what his client thinks?
The “emotional context” drew me immediately to the linked site.
Alas, i forgot to look at the A-2s but did buy a repo 41’ USMC utility jacket.
So i guess it worked...kinda. Lol
LOL...I looked at the site as well. Looks OK...Personally I like Pike, (bros. that is). But this stuff looks good if you're into it I suppose. The jacket the OP mentioned does not look spectacular in any way whatsoever but I'm not hip to A-2's.
Salesman who is a disaster at selling himself.....
I hope the heroes who survived 30+ missions got a new jacket.
for a professional copywriter that was the worst marketing post I've ever read. I even read it in Monty Hall's voice from Lets Make A Deal! Thinly veiled plug if I ever read one. "But don't take my word for it, check it out yourself at..." so pedestrian!
It is important to know and understand your target audience. Thing is, around here, the audience knows and understands as much (often times more) than the manufacturer. Probably twice as true for the military jacket crowd. Tough nut to crack.
