Mine was a RM M-422a. Beautiful goatskin. Rats, probably should have kept it.
For me, my GW Doniger, even one of the ELC team at Duxford airshow last year asked to inspect it and commented how nice it is! Ironically I only originally bought from JC when he advised against buying an A1 that he thought might be too snug!! I love wearing it as the fit just feels right in every respect and is looking better and better - think I've had it now 4-5 years.
My favourite? Currently the Bill Kelso Werber 1402-P in Russet Liberty HH.
damn - that BK looks amazing!!!!
Second CBI, that's one sweet looking A-2.
ELC .50cal A-1.
My gorgeous GW Rough wear. Why did I sell it (think for only £250)... daft bugger.
Crikey Paddy such a low price for such a neat GW, had you been drinking!! Wonder who's got it now, anyone here?
Some great looking jackets...Jeez Paddy someone got a steal
Sorry am relying on Andrew posting pics of my Aero...all going well!!
I'm sure I sold that to Paddy, it was an early Shinki hide and man that had character in abundance.
Here are photos from John Cook (blackrat2) of his GW Aero.
Steve your mad...what was up with the RW
That's a beautiful Aero 16160. For my own education, were any of that contract made that dark originally or would that have been the color of a later re-dye?
It was at least a full size too small John, back in the day when some of us (ok me)thought a trim fit was the way to go.
It was a beautiful jacket.
Your 16160 looks sweet, love that hide.
I think it's my phone as it's not as dark as that...similar to Andrews would be more accurate
This is my current and in terms of character favourite A-2, the GW Dubow 20960 has everything going for it design, fit/comfort, details and with this one in particular the grain.
I originally bought this GW from havocpaul(I think?), sold into a friend, pestered him to sell it back to me for about 2 years then finally bought it back much to my glee.
The hide is pretty thick and it still has a 'creak' to it but it's a small trade off for the excellent grain which varies in pattern throughout. I reckon the jacket must be around 5 years old, I'm going on the knits which seem to be the RMNZ knits JC used for a while and this may well have been either a 20960 test or a 'new hide' test.
*edit* After comparing grain pattern and AN stamp I can confirm that this is the seal jkt featured on JC's website.
Fit wise it's what I would consider a traditional cut, not trim, not blousey and pretty much the right length, perfect!
The only thing I'm not so keen on is the repro zipper tape (The slider however is NOS) but I'm expecting to have that changed at some point this year. Everything else, including the knits are bang on the money.
In short, yet another JC masterpeice.
Unless I put on a irreversible huge amount of weight I will never sell this jacket.
Very nice Dubow! It fits well.
Damn, that's gotta be the sweetest looking Good Wear A-2 yet!
Keep it mate,you'll only want to kick your own butt if you sell it again!!
