One thing that some folks tend to forget when wearing and comparing how these jackets should fit is that they are designed to be worn over a flight suit with a t-shirt underneath. Modern flight suits are a bit thicker than ones in the past due to the flame retardant material. My G-1 fits great when I wore it in this capacity on active duty. My fellow flyers and aircrew in the Army and Air Force really like the A-2 and the fit. At least the ones I worked with and on a few occasions, flew with.
