ohhhh, went to return the A2, and bought this too! Tighter chest fitting, plus, nicer leather than the grainy A2, however, like you said, Black are smoother and softer than Brown, guys, if you hv a choice, go to store to pick up, carefully select the one with better texture, even with the same color, texture are far different too.

2012/Feb bought sz30 from Needsupply.com, too tight and couldn't button 2 button.
2013/April bought sz31 from azaleasf.com, too loose and could swag down the crouch to rapper style, returned exchange for sz 30 pending.
as conclusion, apc changed their sizing.
