Vintage Leather Jackets

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Is anyone here into vintage jackets?

I'd like to get a nice vintage A-2 but I have no clue which brands don't fit like balloons and I refuse to sign up to the fedora lounge.

I don't know about A2s, but G1s are pretty nice of you find a good example. G1s are newer vintage (60s) and not as sought after, thus easier to find, and not as expensive.  Mouton (aka shearling) collar, no epaulets, and mine fits longer than most A2 pics I've seen. Of course, the arms and body are baggier and boxier than pretty much anything posted on SF, but it's not unflattering, just kind of drapy. 

 

Of course, anything 50-70 years old that was used by the air force or marines is going to be either pretty beat. My jacket is goatskin, spray aniline dyed (uh, I think), and is flaking like crazy. Also the knits are pretty shot. I'll probably replace them with something totally inappropriate at some time, but I actually like how raggedy it is.

Dope. I should check out some G1's. Is there any sort of brand and fit I should be looking for? I'm not looking for a slim cut by any means, but I just don't like the total eggshell look.
