It'll probably still be there tomorrow. Short rockabilly-looking chap running the stall.

Smithy said:Just as a matter of interest, has Eastman now sorted out the dodgy knits thing?
Tim, the knits on my Eastman A-1 seem a bit wispy, compared to my other jackets; Goodwear, Gibson & Barnes, Avirex. It's not even a year yet so, I don't know how it will weather[huh]. But, so far-so good.
Can't speak for any of their A-2s though.

True GW makes some splendid jackets, I don't own one because I refuse to pay what JC is asking, (not that it's unreasonable) but the price plus the import duty make it not a very attractive buy for us European guys as you know. I would just prefer a nice original or a used ELC from eBay and take my chances. I love the hunt and I'm afraid if I buy one of John's jackets it would be so darn good that I would have discovered the perfect jacket and then the hunt would be over, and we couldn't have that,
