    I just purchased a 1998 “time-capsule” Willis & Geiger bush pilot jacket from a charity thrift clothing store (at a ridiculously low price). It’s brand new with the sales tag in the pocket along with a still-sealed escape whistle and spare button (the whistle is a relative rarity with these jackets, always missing from used jackets).
    The hide is a super grainy, pebbly lambskin in an eye-pleasing mahogany russet brown.
    Pockets are lined with moleskin.
    This is one luxurious jacket!
    As a collector of Willis & Geiger clothing, I’m very happy to add this to my closet!

    Thank you sir. I don't have an A-2 Bronco, so I can't really make a comparison. The A-1 is a lighter capeskin, so if you're more into the weight of goat, this jacket may not be for you.

    The sleeves of my A-1 are perfect for me. I bought a size 40. The sleeve is 23" (25.5" including the knit cuff).

    Thank you. Yep, that's the LLB Norwegian fisherman's sweater I'm wearing. Same as yours, made in Norway.

    Acme “Thunderer” whistle; made in England. A nice touch to use a real, high quality whistle (they didn’t just throw in a cheapo no-name whistle).

    Agreed. I’ve only seen two and I own the other one. Fit looks good. Little longer in the sleeves would be ideal but not really an issue!
