Cockpit Horsehide A-2 Jake Cutter's Flying Tigers tribute jacket - FOR SALE! This US-made Cockpit WW2 Government issue A-2, is a high quality horsehide flight jacket/ bomber jacket. The Mahogany seal brown horsehide shows the same natural creases, folds and graining details, as those worn by US Army Air Force pilots during WWII. I replaced the knits, lining and added an authentic-as-possible leather AVG Flying Tigers Blood Chit on the back. And this is the result: A tribute to Jake Cutter's Flying Tigers A-2 jacket, from the 1980's 'Tales of the Golden Monkey' TV series! Jacket is very well made. Has a collar stand and also some mismatched hides, which is pretty cool for this jacket. Scovill zipper. Horsehide is a little bit thicker than some other horsehide jackets I have owned, but not by much. Its not heavy. Jacket is a few years old now and has a lot of character and personality.... Due to the replacement bits, the jacket is immaculately clean and fresh. Sizing is... a bit... weird. This is a 36 Long and I normally wear a 40 or 42 I am 5'10, 39.5" chest, 158 pounds/ 72+kg and its comfy enough and easy to wear. Blood Chit - Top quality leather chit, handmade and hand-painted by Sean Collins of A2JacketPatches. Knits are authentic replacement seal brown knits from Larry at Flightjacketknits. Bysonleather here in the UK replaced the knits and authentic cotton lining, and also sewed on the Blood Chit (olive drab threat as requested). These Cockpit WWII Government Issue A-2 jackets currently retail for $700 The leather blood chit is around another $100 The knots, lining and all the work to fit them, another $150 So, this jacket is almost at $950!
