OK...all of you doubters gather round! Just got my Cockpit Reissue A-2 back from Don at Minsky's Tailor Shop. He worked a miracle on my jacket. Where the original shoulder measured 21", Don did exactly what I wanted and took it in to 19". Remember, this is a size 42R. It now fits perfectly. But alas, I have lost 20 pounds! I could have had it taken in another 1/2 inch. Very happy with Minsky. And, a big shout out to "Fanch" for providing the positive feedback on Don. I just love this A-2. It is perfect, even in temps up to 68-70 degrees. A classic leather windbreaker.
