    Usual store, checked all my usual areas and a couple new ones. Nothing. Yesterday was 25% off day, so I guess it's all picked over still.
    Did come out with a Seiko 5 for me though. Not really a brag, but I needed a dress watch so good for me i guess.

    This hide on the A-2 isn't listed on any of the tags. What variations are there?

    Well, it was a nice fling but damn that girl was trouble
    and fire I guess. What happened after a couple of "dates" is that she confessed being in a relationship with someone else...I kinda figured it out because of the sketchy schedules and a huge mist surrounding her life...in fact I didn't care for it but after some more "dates" she started feeling remorse about the cheating...it's bound to happen, sometimes in months or hours after so this was about average...no trouble, it ended like a song, deleted her number and I see her at the store (sometimes she smiles, others snarls)...no perks with her at the spot.
    To be honest she was 5-7 years younger than me and going through different walks of life..., perhaps what @noob in 89 was right but in the end is was good times and I'm never quitting that store. In fact I'm friendly with most of the staff...the odd thing is that the other day after one month without any contact besides eye contact on the checkout she said " I haven't heard from you...did you lost my number"[​IMG]



    Hopefully will post some finds from this week.

    tbh i don't know about avirex. i copped a willis & geiger awhile back and after a little digging i figured out that they only ever made em of hh or goat... those are the traditional hides, but i think sometimes you will see lambskin...

    some repro a-2s are cow but yours doesn't look like cowhide at all from here. probably worth doing a little digging to see if you can corner what they used, especially if you're gonna flip. it's lovely to have horsehide in your listing title. if you can't be sure but know for a fact that it's one or the other i'd simply say that and let the market work it's magic.

    nice jacket amigo. if you do research i'd be curious to know what you find.
