Hello, longtime lurker here. I'm brainstorming ideas for A1 type of jacket and after a search online I got to: 1. AVI Leather A1 replica 2. Five Star Leather A1 replica 3. Numerous Italian brands like Stewart, Delan, Atacama of course Valstar(but it seems they only have suede leather selection atm)...seems this is popular style in there. Do you have experience with them? I'm worried that the replicas might make me look like a reenactor... My price range is around 500ish Euro and the non negotiable features of the jacket are: 1. Not suede. 2. High collar out of wool/cotton/etc 3. Lamb/cape/goat leather, I'd rather not go to a stiffer ones as it doesn't seem to me as matching the style of the jacket. 4. Front closure with buttons(yea, if it has a zip its not an A1, right?) What I can compromise: 1. The square front pockets 2. It might not be leather at all...a nice cotton/wool blend can also work.
