    Hi guys, I am pleased to show my recently-received Eastman A-2s that make up my collections of a-2s. Hope that thats enough and save some money lol.
    I got two time worn 28557 A-2 size 44
    489th bomb group umbriago back painting
    332nd bomb squadron with lining stencil results-count, which is the moto of 94th bomb group that it belongs
    and two new 27752 A-2 size 44
    91st bomb group, I replaced the 324th bomb squadron patch with this one, the lining stencil is VENI VIDI VICI (324th BS moto), the moto for 91st BG ‘ragged irregulars’ seems too long therefore I choose the former one
    another 27752 A-2 with my nametag and pilot patch, shoulder roundel, colonel rank, I haven't decided yet to add the chest patch, I have one very beautiful 358th BS patch made by a very talented craftman in China, 358th BS belongs to the famous 303rd BG 'Hell's Angels'.
    For this time I may not pose the photos I wear them, coz the cutting is basically the same, please kindly refer to my previous posts for dress-up pics.
    And according to my friends' and my experience, I think though 27752 and 28557 are both seal brown, the worn out color of 27752 would be closed to orange brown, while 28557 would be red brown. Both are very beautiful, epic contract numbers.

    Great collection of jackets! How many people here wear whistles with their A-2s? I have an Eastman jacket arriving soon in the post and bought a whistle to go with it...

    Their elite group A-2 use the whistle from ACME
    https://www.acmewhistles.co.uk/
    With or without either is fine I think
