    In all fairness to Wested Leather I have to post this reply that they sent me:

    Hi Jeff,
    I am sorry about that you are not happy with the jacket.
    It would appear from your description that we have sent an A2B instead of the A2 which is another another jacket we make which is has a much looser and modern cut.
    The A2 as you say should have a collar stand with hook and eye and the zip to the bottom. Also the sleeves and body are a much narrower.
    If you wish to return the jacket for another OK if not return it for a refund with postage. Please follow the return instruction to avoid import charges.
    My apologies,
    Peter


    Now, I don't know how this could have possibly happened with all of the emails I sent discussing the various details. During these discussions I was told that the reason for my wait was because they were "custom" making my jacket. But, at least they're not giving any problem as far as a full refund, including postage, is concerned. Again, I did like their workmanship as well as the quality of the materials. But Never was a, so called "A-2B" discussed or even entered the picture. It certainly isn't mentioned on their website. They do appear to be trying. What do you think?

    Fair Play to Wested.

    They are 'trying' to rectify the 'mistake.' Good on them. People make mistakes (like it or not), and they are being BIG enough to admit to that and put it right at no expense (other than time) to you.

    In a modern world that has become a 'blame culture' where people rarely have the guts to hold up their hand and admit..."I was wrong ....or I made a mistake" I find this most encouraging and refreshing with a hint of 'old time' salesmanship!

    Accept it for what it is, a mistake. And be thankful that they are putting it right. Now let's see some pics of this A-2 when it comes through!!:eusa_clap

    I would take the money and run ! A-2B, I have never heard of that before! You get what you pay for I guess, I'd save up a bit, and get one from your side of the turf or at a push, go for an Aero via Mark Moye, you won't be sorry. Good anyway !

    Knowing what an honest fellow Peter is, I'd lay good odds on the A-2B being Sigourney Weaver's jacket from "Aliens" which they also made, and which was based heavily on an A-2, but with many small changes. Please let us know what you get! Pictures of a Wested A-2 are rare indeed.

    You just might be right about that! But, there were no pockets on the sleeve on the one they sent me as mentioned at the accompanying site:
