The Goodwear jackets seem on the other hand to be looser and go better with what a typical middle aged man would wear.
The A-1 I posted on the other hand seems pretty classic and modern at the same time. It seems like it can be worn by a 21 year old and a 41 year old without looking out of place.
I have not seen enough about Goodwear to have a firm position but that is the general impression I get. Of course, the things that turn me off could be the what the federa guys think are great.
I would still like to see more on Goodwear to see what the fuzz is about though.
