    Just received this leather jacket today, IT drives me crazy! Something is wrong. IT has the label of an US authentic a2 jacket , but anyone can see this leather is very old with a beautiful patina!
    The style is A1 and the lining is more like moleskin/twill! What do you think? Is IT homemade with some tag from an US authentic label or What !!!!

    Cheers Joakim

    In any case, it's a beautiful jacket!
    I'd send an email to Shaul, and ask about the origins. It is odd to have an A-1 with an A-2 label.

    Yeah, it's an "A-1" design, but nice. If it fits, who cares? I'm sure you bought after you saw the pics, right?

    Dude, it's lovely. Count me in as jealous. Ever since I sold my A-1 to @Worf, I've been in mourning.
    Wear in good health my friend!

    It's a beautiful jacket!

    Doesn't Shaul do restoration work? Perhaps he repaired this one some time ago and, not being an A-1 maker, put this label in to have "something" there?

    I contacted Shaul, and he Said IT could be something he had done in the past! Good point about the repair. IT sure feels like it is very old looking at the leather and some of the original buttons (some are replaced).
