It is 25 years this month since I bought my 'orange label' civilian version goat skin Cooper A2. I cannot recall how much I paid for it back in 1992 but it was somewhat more than they sell on ebay nowadays. I bought it brand new via mail order. It is marked size 42R. The jacket isn't as trim as a WWII original, but I think that it fits me pretty well. I wore it all the time when I first bought it but have to admit its been some time since I last took it out of the closet. I think the time has come to wear it again on a regular basis. It has survived in very good condition externally. The only wear and tear are where the rivets of my denim jeans worn holes in the poplin liner. I have always worn it with the collar poppers undone. 1992A21 by HanauMan posted Jun 12, 2017 at 1:47 PM 1992A22 by HanauMan posted Jun 12, 2017 at 1:47 PM I know from reading about the civilian Cooper A2s in this forum, and others, that it isn't the best A2 jacket out there, or the most regarded A2 jacket, but I have always liked it and will wear it again with pride.
