    Not my daily wearer, too precious for that! I will wear it from time to time like my other A2 originals. my ELC Werber is my current day, but it will have to compete when the Doniger arrives from JC at Goodwear.

    John, The leather is very soft and pliable, slightly softer than my ELC Werber!

    I can't imagine that Captain Witt wore it more than a few times. Shame he removed the spec label!

    Fantastic find - congrats!
    Who needs a new replica, when you can find a real one this beautifull and almost new.

    Lucky you, otherwise you'd have paid much more.

    Absolutely, Steve. Now all I need to do is find the correct label! ;)

    I can't help but wonder why anyone would remove the label from such a fine looking jacket. Any thoughts?
