Well, that didn't take long...picked up this undated L.L. Bean Thinsulate A-2 from eBay for best offer of $62.45 shipped: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201457942967?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT It is nearly identical to the one I bought in 1987 when I was in college. It is one size larger (20 lbs will do that to you), USA made, one piece back, same tag (non-Flying Tigers), brass zipper, same feel and finish to the goatskin and wool cuffs. The only thing that is different is the color cloth inside the pockets (this one is more brown whereas mine from 1987 was gray), and that the zipper on this one is a brass YKK as opposed to the Scoville; and I don't remember the large, almost faux, stand collar attachment. Mine most likely had it, I just don't remember. The thing is essentially NOS with no evidence of wear. It is a very high quality jacket, with excellent stitching, symmetrical epaulets, and quality as was expected of L.L. Bean in that era. Although the jacket is a 42 instead of a 40, the 501 Levi's are a 35" instead of the 32," the Dexter loafers still fit and putting all that on puts me right back to the 1980's chasing sorority girls at Oregon State--a bargain at twice the price.
