    hello all, new member here asking for help identifying this a2. Ive had almost all makers jackets at one time or another, and this one is stumping me.

    The inner lining and stitch detail is top notch. The leather feels almost identical to my HH Gibson and Barnes, but the sizing is a little different. The seller had it listed as a possible Japanese maker, but all of those I’ve had to size up on, and this fits pretty well. ( usually a 46-52)
    Thanks!

    A courageous attempt at the high end A2 repro market. But the neck snap being exposed is a big no no. Ring snap on a RW no no. Curious if that horsehide smells? Leather could be from South America or could be from Italy.

    I think if they stop calling all of their A2 RW18091, and just use a house label, the perception of blatant inaccuracy would be much lessened. They do separate semi-aniline leather, chrome tanned, and veg tanned, they also describes a hand dying process and how the tea core may show.
