The Cockpit Antique Lambskin A-2 Leather Jacket


The Type A-2 leather flight jacket is one of the most classic and immediately recognizable articles of military clothing ever designed. It is most closely associated with World War II U.S. Army fighter pilots, who often decorated their jackets with squadron patches and elaborate artwork painted on the back.

With classic A-2 styling and a 100% antique lamb outer shell this jacket features:

  • Top and side entry front pockets
  • A hidden pen pocket
  • Underarm grommets for ventilation
  • Knit cuffs and waistband
  • Full zipper front under a wind flap
  • Two inside chest pockets
  • Snap down collar and leather epaulets with an all season poly fiber filling.
  • Exciting patriotic two flag embroidered and silk screened lining with other interior vintage accents.
  • Proudly made in the U.S.A.

The antique lambskin leather will further distress as you wear it to give you that desirable "battle-worn" look. Full cut for a slightly oversize fit.

Beautiful jackets!

This is a great jacket!
by Michael from Harper TX USA 

Pros: Great fit.
Cons: None that I can see yet.
Review: I liked the way it fits. Being a small person, it's hard to find clothes that fit. And this one does. I can't wait until it starts cooling off so I can wear it. Too hot right now.

As Advertised
by A Customer from La Salle IL USA 

Pros: Quality, warmth, comfort.
Cons: Pricey.
Review: Read several reviews before ordering. Previously owned an unlined goatskin A-2 that was perhaps a little more authentic, but for quality, warmth and comfort, this is a fine jacket. Fit is excellent. Quilted lining is exceptional. Agree with previous reviewers, needs snap at bottom of front storm flap.

Made the old fashioned way!!
by Steve from Westampton NJ USA 

Pros: construction, warmth, appearance
Cons: none
Review: My first impressions with this jacket have been overwhelming. I had worn out multiple leather jackets before biting the bullet and buying the A-2. It was stiff to start, requiring a break-in period (just like fine leather boots) but has been a dream to wear. We have had one of the most nasty winters in recent history here on the east coast and the jacket has really impressed me with it's warmth and weather resistance. The A-2 is the real deal!

Sturdy Construction
by Felix from Morristown NJ USA 

Pros: Tough, Durable Construction
Cons: Some of the leather feels brittle
Review: I was a little disappointed at first that the jacket's grain was irregular and not consistent but then decided that it made the jacket look distinctive. Of a little more concern was that one of the sleeves had leather that felt stiff and brittle. I have been treating the entire jacket with mink oil in an effort to get the leather to soften and become more pliable. I feel that the bands at the ends of the sleeves and around the waist should be made of a better more durable quality, since my sleeve ends are already showing signs of wear, i.e. little cotton balls forming.

Great for me son - a new pilot

Disappointed
by Tom Poppleton from Nevada City California 

Pros: Looks good feels good and has the heavy wieght to it
Cons: It doesn't hold up to light everyday conditions
Review: I bought this jacket a few years ago thinking that it would be the last leather jacket I would ever need or want to buy. Being that it's made in America and all. With in a year a little V shape tear in the kidney area showed up. I managed to patch it. Then a few months later more little breaks showed up around the pockets and one on the sleeve. Now I know that this jacket isn't bullet proof but I'm 63 and don't work on cars and run around like I did when I was younger to create the kind of damage the my jacket. I've owned other leather jackets though the years and none of them just came apart on their own. Maybe it's because it's lamb and not cow hide it did this. I any case I'm out the money and so much for buy American. The last time I wore my lamb skin jacket a guy asked me how old was my jacket about 15 years , he guest before I could tell him that no it's only 3 years old. The bad part of this story is that I really liked this jacket and had high hopes that it was the last leather jacket I'd want to buy.

Great jacket!
by R2 from Houston, USA 

Review: I love this jacket. 1st time on it fit like a glove! Very comfortable and it's just starting to break in. Pockets and locations are fine with me. Breaks the cold wind very well. With some undercover it was warm in upper 20's - low 30's. In my opinion it is as advertised plus some. I always look forward to wearing it. Present pricing here cannot be beat also. Better buy now! Same jacket up to $795 elsewhere.

Don't leave it where someone can grab it!

After The 1st Year Of Wear
by Dwight Danna from  

Pros: Great jacket
Cons: Distress to soon
Review: After wearing the jacket for 1year I have to say its a nice jacket I have no complaints well maybe one the distress look came sooner than thought but I guess it all depends on how much you wear it other than that it's holding up very well it can get a bit hot when you enter a building it's still holding its original shape and easy to clean

Definitely worth the price!
by Shanna from Grand Forks ND USA 

Pros: Brilliant workmanship
Cons: Takes a couple weeks to break in the leather
Review: I got this for my boyfriend of two years. He recently started wroking at the University of North Dakota flight school as a CFI and to congratulate him (as well as a two-year gift!) I got this for him and am not dissapointed! He's 6'4" so it can be hard finding things to fit right. I got him a Large Tall and it fits perfect! Takes a couple weeks of wearing to break in the leather but it's brilliant and the detail is spot on.

"A Keeper"
by Jerry from Walnut Creek CA USA 

Pros: Warmth, feel and deep well placed pockets
Cons: I wish it were a little more "Antique" looking. It looks too new.
Review: Being that I haven't owned any other similar leather jackets I can't honestly compare it to others. I can only comment on the product at hand. It is a beautiful comfortable and warm jacket. The moment you remove it from the packaging and feel the weight you know that it is something special. The lining, the leather and zipper oozes quality. It appears capable of lasting you a lifetime. Glad I spent a little more than I was planning on.

Beautiful Pilot Jacket
by Dean from Maryland, USA 

Pros: quality of leather, look
Cons: side pockets too far back
Review: Just received my jacket yesterday. This is my second order for the same jacket. I follow the size chart and order the first one medium, has to return and reorder for small which fits me very well, I like the leather very much although brand new it was soft, smell wonderful, large size zipper works fine, this jacket doesn't need "break in". The only minor disappointments is the knit cuffs and waist band thinner than they should be and the side pockets too far back to slip your hands in comfortably (I has other pilot leather jacket to compare). Overall I like it very much.

Well constructed jacket
by Edward J Barrett from Queensbury NY USA 

Pros: Good value
Cons: Slightly heavy -but to be expected with the leather coat.
Review: I have found the A-2 leather jacket to be not only good looking but functional with no quality issues to date. I have had the jacket about 2 months. I have not tested the jacket in weather below 30 F but I think with proper under garments it should be fine. It is fine alone in weather above 30 F and fun to wear because of the look and the pockets available to carry stuff you do not want to loose. The pockets are well built and deep. The jacket is just starting to show normal wear which makes it look better- not so new looking. I will need more time with the jacket to see if it will meet the test of normal wear and tear, but by inspection of the stitching and zipper construction I think it will last for years.

Ultimate Finesse In Leather Goods.-
by Santiago Iglesias Garca from San Javier, Murcia (Spain) 

Pros: Classy, sturdy, undoubtedly beautiful.
Cons: Maybe I should have bought a size less...
Review: When I was able to finally put my hands on this jacket, I felt totally astonished. Being lambskin, it seemed to me a really sturdy leather but with a special smoothness. The lining is pure and simple artwork, and no doubt it keeps you warm no matter the weather. And the aroma... Once I hung it in my wardrobe, It seemed to soak all my clothes with a pleasant scent. On the subject of sizes, I suggest to choose yours or even one size less. When they say it's roomy, they don't lie. It is, and you must be some kind of a bodybuilder to correctly fit a XL (I'm 1'82 meters tall and weigh 105 kg, but there's still plenty of room in my A-2). I use to combine it with jeans and Dr. Martens-like brown boots, but a pair of Khakis or Dockers would also combine perfectly, just to mention two examples. Finally, My Pilot Store; a serious, thorough, careful service. I'm glad I did business with them. Expensive? No way Jose. You get what you paid for, period.

We need more quality USA manufactures like yours.
by Mark from Orion MI USA 

Pros: Great Quality, Good feel, fits good!
Cons: Zipper leather pull tab ripped off just a couple of months in to use.
Review: Very nice product, great feel, had it a couple of months and it's just starting to break in nicely. Can wait for about a year down the road when it has some wear and tear on it, I bet it will feel great. Please use a better pull tab on zipper. For $600 dollar you would think a nice logo pull tab would be installed.

Rapt! Great product Mate
by Little John from Melbourne, Australia mate 

Pros: terrific cut, great job on solid hide with detailing; oh that lining needs to be seen to appreciate
Cons: zipper operates from the opposite side for male clothing- but that is minor
Review: Gift from my darling wife of 43 years- a terrific present (Australia), great construction, the leather will wear and wear in well, the lining (wow), simply a class product, I am grateful for it! Good job fella's. The day I received it it was 102 degrees- not the weather to wear it in. I ride a Harley and look forward to winter riding. BROWN- cool- not black! Pockets- yeh! Fit- you advised me well, thank you. Delivery- to Australia in of 2 weeks! Very happy.

outstanding jacket
by Jeff from west deptford NJ USA 

Pros: quality through and through, warm even for the northeast winters
Cons: have to break in another one
Review: This is my fourth flight jacket, and this is the best constructed one i've owned.  I usually wear one for about 8 years then I give it to someone and get another.  They love the used one as much as I like the new one.  Might have to keep this one a little longer.

We Brits love those A2's
by Ian from Kilmarnock Ayrshire United Kingdom 

Pros: Absolutely bang on.
Cons: None
Review: Only our American cousins can produce an aviators jacket of this calibre. It's worth every penny even after Her Majesty's government customs took their cut. It's beautifully made and looks "real cool" my wife and the ladies are impressed! I took the advice of the team at My Pilot Store on the size. If you want that tailored look order one size down. I am 5'11" tall and 175 lbs and I ordered a medium, it's perfect. I have even worn mine with a collar and tie!! Lovely and warm and all I wear underneath is a shirt. Nice one chaps

by JT from Arkansas 

Pros: High quality
Cons: Price , but you get what you pay for
Review: I was concerned about the fit, I am 6'2" tall and 240 lbs the 2XL Tall is perfect, the jacket is quite heavy as expected, it is a little stiff, but with any A2 jacket it will soften with use. Treat yourself, you won't be sorry.

A bit disappointing
by Paul from Elm Grove WI USA

The leather itself is very stiff and does not bend to the body when seated. I'm thinking of having it conditioned to make it softer.

Outstanding, classy well-made leather jacket.
by from Sacramento, CA 

Pros: Honors all of our military in a very classy way.
Cons: Very long sleeves.
Review: It is a fuller cut with longer sleeves, so order accordingly. Lambskin looks & feels great; very soft but not as durable as goatskin. The inside is a work of art in itself. Don't leave it sitting on the back of a chair in a public place, it'll be gone in a hearbeat.

by Ron the Woodworker from Gardena CA USA 

Pros: Every advertised feature is here, and better!
Cons: Would like a snap at the bottom by the zipper.
Review: It is even more than I expected. It was B/O for a month, but worth the wait. I had one in High School and wore it out. This one doesn't look like, or feel like I will ever wear it out. It is made out of great leather. The lining is striking. Pockets just where I like them. I still have a small problem with the zipper, but that will fix itself with use.

A Jacket for a lifetime!
by A Customer from Arizona 

Review: This jacket is just what I had hoped for: superbly constructed, the highest quality lambskin leather (hides are flawless), impeccable stitching and finish. It meets the highest expecations for craftmanship and quality. There is a heavy duty zipper which is quite stiff and needed a bit of work with some soap and light olive oil. Be prepared this is a fully lined jacket so it offers some real protection from the elements and will only look better with the patina of age. Runs true to size.

absolutely The Best!
by Ray from Las Vegas NV USA 

Pros: Quality
Cons: fit is a little large
Review: As described!  Fits great, the cut is a little on the large size, but if you're larger on the top part of your body you need to order your normal size if not order one size down if you really want that tailored fit... The quality is unsurpassed. This is a jacket you can pass down to the next generation.  Highly recommend this jacket if you're looking for the best and don't mind spending a little extra to get the very best! Do not hesitate to buy this one! 10+ **************

Looks great and feels great
by Arnold from Peachtree City GA USA 

Pros: Fits well, keeps me warm in the wind & cold
Cons: Heavy, but it is a cold weather jacket
Review: This jacket was a Christmas gift from my girlfriend. The jacket is stiff out of the box and takes time to break-in, including the brass zipper. The leather is still a little stiff a month & half later but feeling softer each time I wear it. The zipper works well with bee's wax lubrication. Sizing is about where it should be. The extra large is a little large across the shoulders but the length and chest fit is correct. I am a little concerned about the cuffs & waist band. I hope they will hold their fit & not stretch out. Time will tell.

Pros: He likes the warmth and the creative lining in the jacket.
Cons: This jacket is quite heavy, but I'm sure the weight is related to the warmth.
Review: I purchased this jacket for my husband (as a surprise) and he was very pleased with the product. After reading other reviews, I decided to go down a size to a 'medium' from his usual 'large' and I'm glad I did.

Nice Jacket
by Diane from Rochester NY USA 

Pros: no snap at bottom of zipper and wimpy cuffs and waistband
Cons: Nice leather and great lining...good construction also made in the USA
Review: This is a very well made leather jacket. The lining is fun and my husband says it is very warm. I think the knit cuffs and waistband could be a little more substantial and the zipper is nice but a little difficult to zip. Also would have liked a little snap at the bottom of the zipper flap. Also want to mention that when my package arrived I pulled up to the house and saw it sitting on my doorstep and this box was out in the rain and was taped with one little piece of tape and the box was open so not a good packaging guys for a jacket of this price thank goodness you also thought to put it in a plastic bag.

Aviation History You Can Wear
by A Customer from Colorado 

Pros: USA Made, Unique historical features in the lining
Cons: Too much jacket for his duty station (Hawaii)!
Review: What a perfect gift for our sailor and aviation enthusiast! I've been looking for the "right" leather jacket for him for several years. What a blessing to find such a beautiful MADE IN USA product that celebrates service to our nation. It cost nearly as much as his first car - but I believe it made him just about as happy.

Wonderful Jacket with only small changes suggested.
by David A from Sunland CA USA 

Pros: Great heavy duty jacket.
Cons: needs snaps on the flap over the zipper to help keep in closed in the wind.
Review: The jacket is first rate and I'm very pleased. I had another A-2 about 20 years ago that went to an old girl friend and I believe it had some snaps on the front as well as the zipper. As I like to wear the jacket while I ride my motorcycle, the snaps would be a welcomed addition to this classic article and would help keep the flap (which could be just a bit wider as well) closed against the wind. Besides that, I'm getting complements all the time.

Pros: beautiful heavy leather. pockets galore! I don't need a purse when I wear it. So many compliments. Warm. It is my go to jacket .
Cons: NONE!!!
Review: This jacket is beautiful and high quality leather! I'm so thrilled with this jacket. I was worried about the size...I'm 5'6" 185lbs and the large is perfect and roomy. XL too big. I liked mine so well that I purchased one for my father for Christmas. He could not have been happier. He's 5'11" 200Lbs and XL was perfect for him. Don't hesitate this is the best quality leather jacket I've seen on the market. I couldn't think of anything to improve it.I covered pin up girl with a pin up guy but that was only improvement I made.

You get what you pay for
by David from Central IL USA 

Pros: Quality leather, styling, sturdy constuction, great pockets
Cons: None yet
Review: I have been wearing this jacket for about 2 months(Nov. & Dec.) & I'm very pleased w/the quality. I live in north central IL & winters are typically cold. The jacket breaks the wind very well & with a fleece vest under it it keeps me fairly warm.

I was right between a large and a medium size so I decided to go w/the large size so I could put a vest under it. It's plenty big enough for me. If I need to I can switch from fleece to a down vest.

Pros: the highest quality leather jacket ever made
Cons: wrap it more carefully
Review: This is my second antique lambskin A-2 leather jacket; the first was purchased directly from the Cockpit store in NYC. When my new jacket arrrived it was wrapped in a single plastic bag and a cardboard shipping box. The UPS driver left in on my front step in a rain storm. When I opened the soggy box, water had leaked into the plastic bag, wetting the leather jacket. I hung the jacket to dry overnight and decided to keep it, as they tend to become distressed with time anyway. This is an excellent jacket, but I would recommend better packaging for shippment.

This gift exceeded by husband's expectations
by Patricia from Plymouth MI USA 

Review: After researching this product online, I chose this website to order a replacement for my husbands 10 year old Avrix A-2 jacket. The leather on the old jacket was still in great condition, but the lining was shredded.

From the initial phone call to place this new order with mypilotstore.com, to the expedient shipment, and excellent condition of the leather, I was thrilled. The order taker was efficient and friendly, and even price matched the jacket from another website.

I echo all the other comments from satisfied customers. The internet really is excellent in letting future customers see the reviews from other purchasers.

I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing from this website. You will not be disappointed.

Excellant Customer Service
by David Kipp from Kirkland, WA 

Pros: Good customer service, nice appearance
Cons: Lining wore out quickly
Review: Excellent Customer Service. I have owned a Cockpit USA Antique Lambskin A-2 Jacket for less than two years and the lining was frayed and worn out around the neck and armpits. I was referred to the manufacturer Cockpit USA and was asked to return the jacket for inspection. They promptly replaced the lining and returned the jacket to me at no charge. I really like the jacket and appreciate the outstanding customer service.

Absolutely fantastic.
by Shawn from Seattle, WA, USA 

Pros: Looks,
Review: Every pilot should buy this jacket. It's a bit on the pricey side but absolutely worth it. After reading the reviews I was worried it might be too hot once its zipped up but its not that bad at all. Well at least here in the pacific northwest (50-60s). The leather takes a few days of wearing to soften up but till then it may be a bit stiff and uncomfortable. Can't beat the looks and its obvious you are making a point when you wear this into Starbucks on your way to the airport.

Best quality.
by TYRONE from MURRIETA CA USA 

Review: In my 50 years of owning leather jackets, This one has the best quality than most that I have seen, especially for the reasonable price. The leather is finished smooth and shiney the way that I like it. Since the leather is real and thick, the jacket is quite heavy. Great for cold weather with sporty style. Thanks for the lifetime quality. This will be an item to inherit to my son.

A Bit Disappointed
by Chuck from Springfield IL USA 

Pros: It's still a very nice jacket, especially for someone interested in WWII.
Cons: It doesn't have the same quality as the same jacket made about 15 years ago by the same company.
Review: I bought this jacket back in the 90's when the company still went by the name of Avirex. I bought this one because the inside of the earlier one is mostly in tatters. Because of the earlier purchase, however, I have something to compare this one to. Therefore, I might be a bit harsh. The workmanship doesn't appear to be as good on the newer jacket. The texture of the lambskin is more slick, the zipper is hard to get started and then snags halfway up, and the earlier version featured protective plastic coverings on the pin-up (who was cuter before) and the Italian lira. Those nice little touches made the jacket a little more fun to put on.

Large is LARGE
by David from Columbus OH USA 

Pros: Nice look and very historic. Probably very nice at 20,000 feet in an open airplane.
Cons: A bit large and very warm. Doesn't wear well in a car. Take it off before getting in.
Review: The quality of the jacket is nice. I bought a Large (normally I wear a 42L). This jacket has a ton of room and is not tight at all. The shoulders hang over but that makes the sleeves long enough. It is well insulated and is not a cool day jacket. It is a cold day jacket. I find it is bulky and hard to wear in my car. I wear it outside when I know it is going to be cold. I think a medium might have been a better fit. Since the jacket is so warm, I didn't wear it to really get a feel for the fit until the weather turned cold and past the date I could exchange it.

I like the fit, the heavy zipper, the weight of the leather, and the color. I also like the fact that it was made in America. It is a throwback to the day when American products were the best made products in the world. No one can go wrong in buying this jacket.

Pros: It's a nice replica for those interested in WWII.
Cons: It doesn't have the same quality as the same jacket made about 15 years ago by the same company.
Review: Unlike most other reviewers, I've been somewhat disappointed in this jacket. It was purchased to replace basically the same jacket I purchased about 15 years ago. At the time, Cockpit went by the name Avirex. As a result I have something to compare the new one to. The new one seems "cheaper"--for want of a better word. The zipper is reluctant to start and always snags half-way up. In the earlier version, the grain on the outside was little more pronounced, the pockets on the inside were larger and lower for easier access (getting my wallet in and out of this one is a nuisance!), and the little extras like the pin-up (which was much cuter in the earlier version) and the Italian lira were both protected by a plastic cover. I know that's a little thing, but the reason I bought this newer version is because the inside of my original jacket is mostly in tatters now. So, the little extras here will eventually be torn and fall off.

Pros: American-Authenic-Patriotic-Heavy Leather-Fit Perfect!
Cons: It is not cold enough in South Texas to wear it as much as I want!
Review: I am a Pilot, War Bird Enthusiast, Motorcyclist...I Love this symbol of our American Heritage. I researched and shopped hard before purchasing this jacket. After trying other A-2's half the price and some twice as much I settled on the one from "My Pilot Store." I was Ecstatic! Best purchase ever! From the Beautiful Leather Exterior to the Patriotic Silk Screened Interior, It is instantly recognized as top of the line. Excellent Quality Through Out! I am very pleased, plus it fits perfect. I am most proud of the date stamp on the label, "1945" truly America's "Finest Hour!" Thank you for your Quality of Service.

Review: I am 5'10", 195 lbs and muscular. I ordered the "Large" size. I took it out of the box, peeled off the plastic covering and slipped into it like a second skin. When I ordered it, my wife was concerned about the price and the past disappointments we have had with other jacket manufacturers. Now that she has seen and worn it, she likes it so much that she simply must have one too. I also have the "Cockpit" Tanker Jacket. You guys have quality unsurpassed by anyone, hands down. Oh, and it's "Made In The USA". (don't hear that much anymore!)

Review: I'm not a pilot but as an old Air Force brat I always wanted a bomber jacket and have purchased a few through the years.This one is the real deal, it's heavy like it is suppose to be,most of the leather bomber jackets that I tried or looked at were very nice looking but were made of a very thin light leather. One I had tore when holing a glass door open with the forearm of my jacket. I was glad that my wife was there to see it happen, as she had paid 500 bucks for it.

Great Quality Jacket
by Ken from Genesee MI USA 

Pros: The quality of the leather and detailed construction
Cons: The collar and pocket cover are smooth leather rather than the antique lambskin look
Review: The Cockpit A-2 Jacket is the best quality that I had seen. I have been looking at other major competitor's Bomber Jackets but this one is the best.
I love the construction especially the sturdy zipper. The heavy duty zipper is indestructible. The only problem that I see is a different type of leather used in the collar and pocket cover might consider to be a distraction. Overall I love the jacket's construction and fit.

Coat was awesome

Pros: Beautiful Lamb skin dark brown color and fine quality.
Cons: A little pricy but I always say you get what you pay for.
Review: I was a little nervous buying this coat sight unseen with a cost of a little over $400 but it surpassed my expectations. It was beautiful. I took it from the box and it blew me away how nice it was. I read some of the reviews before I bought this item and some of the negatives people wrote I found none of this to be true. I cannot say how the coat will wear as the years go by but judging by the looks and quality I can't help but think it will outlast me. Glad I ordered a larger size. I'm 6'3" and weigh 250 with long arms and the 2XL Tall fit great. So far I couldn't be happier.

Quality says "Made in the USA" all over it at first glance.
by Charles from Duxbury MA USA 

Review: I couldn't believe the fit was as perfect as it could possibly be. Just feeling the weight taking it out of the box told me my search of two years for this jacket was well worth the wait. Good thing I lift weights because the quality of the zipper requires a little muscle unlike the cheap hardware on what "we think" are good quality jackets.
The lining alone draws interest and comments. I find myself draping it over a chair sometimes and just staring at it. This jacket is nothing but CLASS from every angle. It's a reminder of the quality in clothing this country once took pride in. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that I got it too late in the year because I want to wear it every day and the weather is getting warmer. It's the nicest piece of clothing I've ever purchased for myself in a long, long time.

All That's Advertised!
by ERICK from SPRINGFIELD VA USA 

Pros: Very roomy, very warm, outstanding leather and overall quality.
Cons: Sleeves are a bit long (see review).
Review: Jacket is truly superior quality. I've been looking for YEARS to find a replacement of one I had years back and this is it. Lambskin leather is of top quality - soft/durable. Lining pleasantly warmer than I had expected. Jacket is VERY roomy; don't think you need to "size-up" to fit layers underneath. Only potential negative is that for a large, I was surprised at the sleeve length - I wear a 17x34 dress shirt and the sleeves are a bit long for me - but not unreasonably so. Although I appreciate the flags/military Service logos on the inside the nose art seemed a bit over the top for me but a whimsical/nostalgic blast from the past.

Customer service was great and spot on as to my size.  The only small thing is the jacket has a bit of a strange odour.  Not really a leather smell,but I think in time this will dissapate.  Again,no big deal at all.  Definately two thumbs up.  Only problem is I want to buy more Cockpit coats!

Best jacket I have ever owned.
by Eric from Chino Hills CA USA 

Pros: Quality material and workmanship
Cons: Poor sizing information
Review: I was looking for a jacket that fit me like a flight jacket should. Not baggy or hanging on me like a bad date. I read all the reviews and at the end I was more confused than ever. I decided to email Mypilotstore for their opinion since they must get these kind of questions all the time. I told them I was 6' 4" with arms like an orangutan. I gave them my waist size of 38 and my jacket size of 46. They emailed me back and told me I should go with XL or if I like wearing my jackets a little loose then a 2XL. So I ordered a XL and waited for it to arrive. All the time I was worried my UPS drive would make off with my jacket.

It arrived quickly and I carefully open the box not wanting to scar it with my knife. It laid there beautifully wrapped in a clear plastic cover gently folded over once. The leather was shiny and had a new smell to it. I buried my nose into it and inhaled it's scent while all the time screaming like a kid who just got lucky on prom night. Then I reached into the box and immediately went to try it on. Arrrggg! Did they think I was covering the Good Year blimp with my jacket? The arm length was fine but clearly this jacket would have fit the most studliest Sumo wrestler.

I called Mypilotstore and got a RA number to return the jacket for a smaller size. That was hassle free and they sent out a L right away. The large fits perfect and I can't wait to walk down Hollywood Blvd on a Friday night wearing this jacket. One thing though, this is LA and I am not stupid enough to wear a fine jacket like this on the streets of LA at night!

Bomber Jacket is great
by Larry from Arvada Co USA 

Pros: Heavy, warm, nice fit, nice looks.
Cons: I hope the elastic wrist bands and waistband stay tight.
Review: My Pilot Store kept me up to date with the status of my order. The jacket arrived on schedule. It is a nice heavy dark brown jacket that fits very nicely. I am 6' 195 lbs and a large fits me nicely. The jacket is warm, nice looking, heavy and great to wear. I like it.

Pros: Sizes are accurate
Cons: None
Review: The sizes are very true which makes my LARGE a little large.I wore these jackets while I served in the Army Air Corp 43'44'45'Africa & Italy.  Back then I always wore a large but they were not made as nice as your product.I would buy this same jacket again, but in a medium.  It is the finest tailored jacket, in every respect, that I have ever put on my body baring none.  Even though it is some big for me.  You folks are well respected in the A-2 world.

One happy pilot.
by Steven from Oklahoma City OK USA 

Pros: Incredible construction, and perfect fit. Darn nice jacket.
Cons: Did not find it sooner.
Review: My father is an 85 year old retired navy pilot who also had a lengthy commercial career. FAA flight instructor, seaplane pilot in the Virgin Islands, and flight coodinator for Pan American European ops. He lost his flight jacket after developing dimentia. I hoped he would like this jacket for Christmas but never believed it would be so quality and mean so much to him. He is so proud to wear this flight jacket. Thank you!!

older than dirt
by Mark from Greendale, WI 

Pros: thick, rich lamb skin- looks great with a Burberry scarf.
Cons: none
Review: I bought this jacket in 1998! As it has gotten broken in, it has taken on that wonderful look of a jacket that is obviously well worn, but looks even better than it did when it was new. I love it more now than ever and will, in all likelihood, like it a little more when I get it out for winter next year.

Great Attention to Detail
by ABRAHAM from ROSWELL GA USA 

Pros: Workmanship, materials, style.
Cons: None
Review: Wow! I could not be happier with this coat. It is by far the best leather coat I have owned. The workmanship is great and stiching is perfect. I expected a top notch leather jacket and this one does not disappoint. The leather is great quality and the side pockets come in handy. I have received compliments on this jacket almost every day. Many thanks to the sales person who convinced me to go with a large instead of the extra large that I normally order.

A really great leather jacket
by Bart from Smethport, PA, USA 

Pros: It is very warm on a cold night and a great looking jacket.
Cons: Being new the leather is stiff but I'm breaking it in.
Review: I really like the jacket. I fits good and is very warm on these cold winter nights. It looks great both inside and out. As a matter of fact the lining is beautiful.

The only negative thing is the new leather is stiff and it will take a little time to break it in so it really comfortable.

Overall, I love it and I live long enought to wear it out I'll get another.

Made in the U.S.A. is another plus
by Martine from Northridge CA USA 

Pros: Exquisite leather, exceptional fit, looks great.
Cons: I'm sitting here wracking my brain for a con. I can't even say it's too pricey, because it really wasn't,
Review: I just didn't know what to get my husband this past holiday season. He couldn't think of anything to put on his wish list, so I had to think of something that I know he would NOT put on a wish list. He loves old airplanes and has several games where flight is simulated. He is an avid reader of WWII, so I thought just maybe a jacket such as this would be appreciated. I'm so glad I listened to advice that I get a larger size than normally, because the fit is just perfect. His eyes lit up when he opened the package. He loves everything about this jacket, including the unique lining. It's warmer than it looks, by the way.

It's nice!
by A Customer from New Smyrna Beach FL USA 

Pros: My husband wears it every day that it's cool down here. That speaks for itself.
Review: I bought as a birthday gift for my husband to replace his dingy,15 year old beloved carmel colored Banana Republic "pilot" style jacket. He put this lambskin A-2 leather jacket on and has never looked back. He looks great and the fit is wonderful. I do recommend calling the company to get size advice as I would have ordered the wrong size if I based it on my husband's shirt measurements of 16 neck/32-33 sleeve length. The customer service associate advised a Large instead of a Medium and she was right.

This jacket is a prized possession and worn every day
by Cindy from West Richland WA USA 

Pros: Size and quality of leather
Cons: The finish is a bit too shiny, but I hope will fade over time.
Review: I purchased this jacket for my tall husband for Christmas, hoping it would be long enough in the sleeves, and it was! He is 6'-4" with a 37" sleeve length. He wears it every day, even in winter. I am impressed with the construction, but especially with the way the inside of the jacket has historic text and a picture of a pretty girl (which he of course discovered right away). Thanks for offering such a nice jacket. He looks great in it and I finally feel like I was able to give him a gift he really has enjoyed wearing.

The antiqued finish is very attractive and will only get better with age. The leather was soft, the inside artwork and history only added to the beauty of this jacket. We should all be so lucky to own this beautiful,"MADE IN THE U.S.A." jacket!

Nice Leather, Cuff Material Cheap
by Gary from Utah 

Pros: Nice Leather
Cons: Cheap Knit Components
Review: Leather is beautiful and soft. Been wearing it since christmas and the cuffs and waistband are already pilling up and looking kind of ratty. I don't think it will last even close to how long the leather will. Not sure if I got one with a bad batch of Knit. Seems a bit thin and whimpy for such a heavy coat.

Fantastic Jacket
by Dick M. from Terrace Park, OH 

Pros: quality of supple leather, fit aroung shoulders and length
Cons: none
Review: Just received my Christmas present to myself-the A-2 jacket. Found your website by "surfing" for leather bomber jackets. It is a perfect fit, soft leather, just the right length and, for once, the right length sleeves. I am 6'1", 190" and hard to fit with size 44 coat but nothing between my shoulder blades. That, together with a 37" waist and 31" pant leg means everything I buy has to be altered. Not this guy-it's fantastic & "large" is right on. Thanks for a wonderful garment lined with nostalgia. WOW!!

Great look! Bad smell...
by Holly from Orem UT USA 

Pros: Beautiful look, construction, and feel! Authenticity is a big plus!
Cons: Fishy smell hard to get over.
Review: I bought this for my husband for Christmas. When I opened the box and took off the plastic cover I was washed over with the smell. I had to hang the coat in the garage for 5 days to let it freshen and off-gas. It is wearable now, but no nice smell of leather. For a few days I was scared I had wasted my money.

Pros: Style, workmanship, fit, warmth and comfort.
Cons: If anything, the zipper is a little stiff to work, but wear will alleviate that.
Review: I wanted only the best for my husband's Christmas gift. He has wanted this style of jacket for many years, so I searched various sites and read many customer reviews before making my selection. The jacket arrived in just a couple of days. I had him try it on to avoid an after Christmas return. The jacket is true to sized based on the sites specifications. No need to order a larger size to get a good fit. Well worth the price!

This A-2 is Outstanding
by Sky Pilot from Oceanside, CA 

Pros: Soft lambskin leather, stitching, pockets both inside and out, lining and authenticity are all outstanding.
Cons: none
Review: I never write reviews, so this jacket must be GOOD for me to take the time. I really, really like this jacket. Hours of research, both on line and calls to stores and factories, pointed me here and I'm glad I chose it. Very comfortable, very warm, and an excellent fit. I'm 5'11 and 230. The sizing chart was pointing me to an XL. I called the folks at MyPilot and they talked me down to a Large. A perfict fit. Glad I didn't go with the XL. My price from MyPilot was $85 less than the manufacture's retail outlet store in NY. This jacket is well worth the money.

Flying with The Brest!!
by Benjamin from East Syracuse NY USA 

Pros: Sharp looks and very eye-catching!!
Cons: A tad heavy.
Review: The reviews are right!! This jacket does run one size larger than your regular size jacket. Glad I heeded to the reviews!! Excellent fit and the leather is buttery soft yet tough!! The inner details of this jacket are exceptional, giving the wearer a piece of the WWII history. You can match it with khakis for a formal look or pair it up with jeans for a casual look. This Cockpit Antique Lambskin A-2 Leather jacket will keep you warm and toasty for years to come!! This jacket is a tad heavier than my previous A-2 leather jackets. Not a quality issue!! Finally giving it a FIVE star rating because it is made out of substantial leather weight... a do-it-all leather jacket if I may!! Had it about a little over a month now and Cockpit does a nice job with all the details to make it a treasure to own and to fly with!!

This is the best jacket I've ever bought
by Cpt. Bob from Curtis Bay MD USA 

Pros: Fits great, looks great, and well made to last a very long time!
Cons: Consider changing hanging loop to a straight hanging strap.
Review: This jacket is well constructed and fits very comfortably. The sizing information was "right on" for my size. It looks great, and I've had complements every time I've gone out in it. It is truely a jacket for all seasons. I've worn it in cold weather and fairly mild weather, and it has been comfortable in each case. The one suggestion I have is to remove the curled hanging loop from the neck and replace it with a straight leather strap like the one on the cotton A-2 jacket. The loop rubs the back of my neck and is somewhat bothersome. Otherwise, I'd consider it perfect!!

I bought this new one so that I can take the other one in to get some repair work done on the lining.

Perfect Christmas Present for My 88 Year Old Dad
by Ed from Los Angeles, CA 

Pros: Great fit - authentic - accurately sized - looks great - feels great
Cons: None whatsoever
Review: Really --- it was perfect for a myriad of reasons. Mom and Dad were married in 1943. Dad was in the Army Air Corp. Listening to his stories as a boy growing up were memorable including a B-24 crash he survived in Boise, Idaho. He is very patriotic and member of numerous related organizations. Since he is 6'2" I was afraid he would need a "Tall" which would have required back order. But the sales representative assured me that the Regular would work fine. And it did as the jacket is a totally perfect fit. The only problem was what to get Mom for an equivalent Christmas present for 2009. I decided to buy her a nice quilt and matching pillows and the like. It was the best thing I could think of for an extra special present. But nothing compares with the pride I felt to help Dad try that jacket on in Anderson, South Carolina, when I arrived from Los Angeles to celebrate Christmas at home on 12/26/2009. Extraordinary thanks is required and given to everyone involved at mypilotstore.com

Review: This jacket is great in every way. I ordered it for my boyfriend for Christmas and originally got a medium... it seemed to run big though, and rather than chance it (there's a 30 day return policy and I'd ordered it in October), I returned it and got a small. Thank God, because the small was perfect. It's a beautiful, high quality jacket. Just keep in mind they tend to run larger in size.

Beautiful and well made.
by John from West Hempstead, NY 

Cons: Would have preferred an extra small.
Review: Basically, the jacket meets my expectations. The quality is top grade. I like the 2 inside pockets (as opposed to the normal 1). I like the snaps on the collar. The color is very nice. I just wish the small was smaller or that you offered an extra small. I am 5'5", 120 lbs. and would have preferred it a little smaller all around.

Review: I thought the jacket was terrific. The vendor was polite and addressed my every needs. My only problem, and this is nitpicking, is that I thought it might be a little shorter, or smaller (tighter). However it is a great product.

I absolutely love this jacket and will probably buy a second one for myself
by Peter from Lake Forest IL USA 

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
Review: I've already reviewed this product, but since the MyPilot Store asked me (last time I did it on my own), I'll rave about the jacket again. The jacket looks simply fabulous on me (that may have as much to do with my looks as the jacket - kidding), it's beautifully made, stylish, timeless, comfortable and georgous to behold even on the hanger in the closet. And I simply love the look and feel of the lining. This is the best leather jacket I've ever purchased. The sales rep I spoke with on the phone when I placed the order helped me determing which size to order. Evidently he and I are roughly the same size, so his recommendation of XL for my 6' 220 pound frame was spot on. Thanks again. The jacket is quite roomy - exactly the way I like it.

Pros: Everything about this jacket is a "pro." The materials, the construction, the fit, the feel, the attention to detail.
Cons: None.
Review: This jacket is everything I hoped it would be. The leather is gorgeous, the stitching is perfect, and the fit is very comfortable. Personally, I like the lining, and think it adds to the appeal of this jacket. It's nice to see that there is still something of the very highest quality made in the USA. I cannot imagine a nicer A-2 jacket.

Too large, but fits the dream!
by Peter Steinberg from New York NY USA 

Pros: Great feel-good look!
Cons: Too large across the midsection.
Review: A review? Yeah, I'll write a review. It's a great look and a good feel. They said it would be roomy, but there's more space inside than my apartment. I stand a little over six feet, weigh about 192 pounds with a 36 inch waist. I wear a 46 sport coat so I bought the extra large as recommended, and while snug across my shoulders, there's a lot of space inside. I can wear a heavy cable knit, Irish sweater and a leather sport coat underneath without stretching the jacket. Okay, I admit it, when I added woolen long underwear it started to look like it fit. But I'm giving it five stars, because My Pilot is selling more than a jacket, they're selling a dream. For those of us who are still fighting the second World War, or wish we could have, this boosts the image like no other jacket could. I have to go now. My plane was shot down a few days ago, and I was the only one who got out. It's been raining here, and I'm trying to get home. Right now I'm crawling through the mud in some farmer's freshly furrowed field. Intelligence said there's a Nazi tank unit somewhere in the vicinity. So I've got to be careful. If God is with me, I'll make it back.

absolutely delighted!
by Norm DePlume from Lake Forest, IL 

Pros: Excellent fit. Beautifully made. Comfortable as any I've ever tried.
Cons: none!
Review: I haven't purchased - let alone seen - a decent product made in the USA in at least five years. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem on the internet. This jacket is beautifully made and fits me perfectly (I got the XL). I'm 6' 1", weigh 215 and wear a size 38 Levi Jeans (if that helps anyone with sizing questions), and this fits me as if it were tailor made. And let's not overlook the fact that it's as handsome a jacket as the fellow now wearing it... I may even buy a second one because, on those rare occasions when I've found a product this good and it came time to replace it, the company or quality was no longer available. Here's hoping that Cockpit thrives for years to come! Kudos to the fine folks at MyPilotStore.com for providing this product at the best price I've seen. And last, but not least, thanks to the sales rep at MyPilotStore who steered me to this size. His advice was spot on.

Nice warm jacket but
by Dan from Road Warrior 

Pros: Warm, well stitched, quality lining.
Cons: Bad leather
Review: I really looked forward to getting this jacket but was disappointed with the leather. It has stripes where the leather had not adhered to the backing causing it to look like a large cat had scratched the lamb before they skinned it. Other than that, the jacket is well stitched, warm, and a quality item. It's just too bad they used factory second leather on my jacket.

Review: This Jacket is awesome. I bought it as a gift for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. The sizing is perfect. The quality of leather is wonderful and it is made in the USA. I have to say that I am amazingly pleased with the customer service I received from mypilotstore.com!!! I ordered the jacket on a Monday with overnight express shipping. They called me to inform me that it was on back order and it would be a few days and offered to refund my express shipping costs. I explained to them that my boyfriends birthday was that Wednesday and I was really hoping to give him the jacket. I don't know how they did it but he was wearing the jacket that Wednesday before noon. I know where I will be buying his Christmas presents. THANK YOU MYPILOTSTORE.COM!!!!

Great leather Aviator jacket!
by Marie, wife of flying man Jeff from Green Bay WI USA 

Pros: Quality, appearance and pure aviation enjoyment
Cons: It took a long time to exchange sizes. He was between a reg and a tall and I first went with tall. He is 6'1". Too big.
Review: The leather is wonderful and will likely get softer and more "antique" with time. Contrary to some reviews, both my husband and I LOVED the lining. It gives us a smile every time. Living in Wisconsin, he needs this jacket most of the year and will thoroughly enjoy it. Plenty of room for fleece under it.

Great piece of American History!
by Buddy WIlliams from Shreveport LA USA 

Pros: Good looking, very well made, and made in America! Warm, but not too heavy for mild weather.
Cons: Might be a bit heavy (weight wise) for some.
Review: This jacket was all I expected and then some. Very well made (in America I might add!) and extremely warm. The lining itself is like looking back in history as well. Fits true to size. And the compliments are never ending anywhere I go! Should last a long time with minimal upkeep. I'm hot-natured by rule, but have been very comfortable even in the strange Louisiana up and down weather we have! (20's at night to upper 70's during the day)

Very Good Quality Leather
by Victor from Union NJ USA 

Pros: It's worth the price
Review: This is a really good quality A-2 leather jacket. It was alitte stiff around the collar at frist, but it broke in after a week. I received the jacket 2 days before christmas, when I ordered it on 12-16. It's getting the worn look real easily since i got it a month ago and wearing it. There's no need to go an extra size I got a 2xl, and can still wear a sweat shirt underneath. The lining is very decorative and nice, but I would have liked to have had a plain one if I had the choice. Thanks

My husband LOVES it!
by Mo from New Orleans LA USA 

Pros: Quality of materials and workmanship, attention to detail
Cons: Too heavy to be worn as often as my husband would like
Review: A little warm for our climate, but is otherwise exactly what my husband has always wanted in a bomber jacket. Finish of the stitching and quality of the leather are excellent. Arrived quickly, around the holidays. There was an extra layer of cardboard in the box to make sure I didn't cut the jacket opening the box. They really DID think of everything! Jacket and service both exceeded expectations.

Top quality jacket for a top gun pilot
by Steven from Columbus GA USA 

Review: Loved this wonderful A-2 Leather Jacket!! My dad, a WWII pilot, is 86 years young and loves the feel, the warmth and the good looks of this A-2. The lining is great with artistic flair that is fun to show off. The weight is heavy but the leather is supple, unlike so many other supposed "genuine" A-2's. Very reasonable price as I saw the identical jacket on other sites/catalogs for $50 to $120 more.

It is winter here in Virginia and he must stand at a train station for his commuter train. He said that his legs my be cold but he is so nice and warm from the jacket he is very comfortable. He loves the fit and style as well. We have already given out the website to others.

Great Leather A-2 Jacket made in USA
by Victor from Union, N.J. 

Pros: Best Pricing out there on the internet or in a store for an A-2 Leather Jacket. Would buy from again.
Cons: Nice lining but would be great if you could choose plain or decorative lining
Review: Just got my A-2 Lambskin Jacket today. It's very tuff to find a Very Good Quality Leather Jacket made in the USA in a store today especially without paying an arm or leg. Was a bit iffy buying this off the Net, without seeing / trying it on first. They definitely keep the consumer in mind with pricing & shipping cost. It's worth the wait. 10 days from placing order to receiving jacket (on Dec. 23 no less). This Jacket is a Definite Keeper. Thank You!!!

I'll remember this purchase for the rest of my life
by Proud Mom from Garden City NY 

Review: For 2 years my son has been requesting an A-2 Leather jacket. I made many demands of him during that time to make sure he earned it. We then searched many web sites and found what appeared to be the perfect jacket at mypilotstore.com. We ordered it and when it arrived it was a great moment. Pure joy! It's perfect! The jacket has very high quality leather that's beautiful and soft, and seems like it will last forever. We like that it's made in the USA and I like seeing the huge smile on my son's face every time he puts it on.

A-2 Leather Jacket
by John from Manchester CT USA 

Pros: Highest quality workmanship.
Cons: None
Review: This jacket, worn by fighter pilots since WWII, is a classic. I have always admired the jacket worn by our fighter pilots. Now I have one. And I am extremely pleased with it. It is of the finest, softest lambskin and I'm sure it will give years of wear. I am prod to wear the jacket that our heroes of WWII and Korea wore.

Stunning quality!
by Michael from Cheshire CT USA 

Pros: Everything! The leather, the details, the zipper, the pockets -- it's all stunningly well crafted.
Cons: Possibly the weight/size and the fact that it's so warm. But really, these are qualities of this type of jacket.
Review: This is my first leather jacket and it is amazing! Very thick, very heavy, just like an A-2 is supposed to be. My only complaint (if I was forced to have one) was that it's SO thick I haven't really had much chance to wear it with the weather still warm. If you're looking for a flight jacket though, this is GREAT!

The fit is perfect for him and he will be able to wear a thick sweatshirt/ sweater underneath if needed. After Retiring, 34 yrs as an Army SF, R&D, Instructor, test pilot, he deserved only the best of jackets and this one is surely it.

Review: While the leather of which the jacket is constructed is very attractively textured, I am disappointed by its light weight compared to the Avirex Varsity jacket that I have been wearing and enjoying for years; and by the facts that the label most visible when the jacket is hanging is sewn in crooked, and the inside of the jacket's elastic waistband is pilling most grievously. Altogether I do not think I really got my money's worth.

Previous Customer Questions For The Cockpit Antique Lambskin A-2 Leather Jacket:
Ask Your Own Question
On Friday, December 27, 2013 a customer asked:
Q:
Is the back of the A-2 Leather Jacket plain without any type of insignia? I prefer the Jacket to be plain without patches or pictures and decorations of any kind.
A: Yes, the outside of the jacket is just a solid brown leather on the front and back.  The only design is on the interior lining of the jacket.

On Thursday, August 11, 2011 a customer asked:
Q:
Is the A2 the same as the Averex jacket of 20 years ago. Same jacket just different manufacture?
A: Avirex changed their name to Cockpit USA in the 1990's.  They have been making these A2 jackets since the early 1970's.

On Wednesday, March 02, 2011 a customer asked:
Q:
what would you suggest to treat the A-2 jacket with to protect it against water and stain
A:

Most leather really does not need a lot of upkeep UNLESS it gets totally soaked.  If you have a spot to clean, we recommend using a bit of Lexol or Mink Oil on the inside flap first to test as it will darken the leather usually.  If the jacket needs to be cleaned, take it to a dry cleaner with a leather specialist who understand that the antique lamb color will totally wear off if cleaned with any solvent.

On Sunday, February 21, 2010 a customer asked:
Q:
I am 6'4". Should I buy the Tall size?
A:

Yes, the manufacturer does recommend anyone over 6' 1" and less than 6' 6" order the tall style.

On Saturday, February 13, 2010 a customer asked:
Q:
Does the wind flap have snap closures at the collar and the waistband?
A:

The collar is secured in the down position using snaps, but it does not have snaps at the top or bottom of the zipper.  

On Monday, November 23, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
Is the leather jacket waterproof or does it need to be treated
A: The jacket is not waterproof.

On Wednesday, October 14, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
What is the sleeve length for the L and XL
A: Size L is 37" and Size XL is 37.5" on sleeve length.

On Tuesday, September 01, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
"antique' indicates to me that the leather looks "used or older" which I find more desirable than a new look. Am I right?
A: Yes, that is correct. The lambskin on this jacket is made to fatigue with wear so it gains that antiquated/worn-in look.

On Friday, May 29, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
What is the sleeve length of the A2, size small jacket? I wear a 40 long sport jacket with 34/35 inch sleeves.
A: The sleeve length on a size small would be 36 inches from the collarbone.

On Saturday, March 14, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
Can the jacket be ordered with a plain lining ?
A: This jacket is only available with the inside printed lining shown in the product zoom pictures.

On Saturday, February 14, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
does this jacket come in black
A: It is only made in brown leather as pictured.

On Tuesday, December 23, 2008 a customer asked:
Q:
can you provide a sizing chart to determine e.g. large 40-42, etc? Thanks,
A: Generally speaking, Small is 38-40, Medium is 40-42, Large is 42-44, and XL is 46-48, and XXL is 50-52.

On Thursday, November 20, 2008 a customer asked:
Q:
is the antique lambskin jacket heavier than the 21st USAF A-2 jacket? and Do the sizes run the same? Do they "fit" the same way (or does one run larger/smaller)?
A: Both the modern A-2 and the Antique are the same as far as heaviness. The sizes do run the same, however the modern one is slightly roomier.

On Monday, August 20, 2007 a customer asked:
Q:
Can you do custom silk screen on the inside and back of the jacket?
A: We do not do silk screening for the jackets. We typically recommend checking with any local companies to do so.
