I've always shied away from A-2 jackets, just because it can make you look like you're a military wannabe, but that RRL A-2 jacket is fantastic looking. If somebody sees it in the store, would be interested in knowing how it fits.
Polo Jeans Company has not been discontinued. PJC has stand alone stores in southeast Asia (in Singapore, for example) and in Europe, I think, and the stuff isn't cheap.
