Just getting to grips with my Cape-skin ELC A-1 in size 48, love the classic design, tailored fit & caramel color of this jacket. It's nice to have a light weight wearer of a flight jacket in an early style that isn't automatically recognized by the lay person as a military design. Two weeks in and I'm at the 'breaking in' stage. Despite the hide being so soft comfort has increased with time due to the trim design. I've used the 'wet the lining' & wear method and noticed the grain 'developing' further at stress points. Today I applied ELC Leather conditioner and again wore the A-1 for several hours through a range of daily activities including driving. The jacket is beginning to feel like a second skin, my ELC Roughwear A-2 was a tougher battle and eventually developed a glove type fit. I wasn't sure about buttons at first, but quickly got used to them. Most of the time I wear the A-1 open anyway as a light layer over a T-Shirt. The collar is again quite different to what I'm used to, but laid down comfortably after a couple of wears. Pockets are low set & I can only really see them being good for my credit card & a few $$$.
