My best A-2, head and shoulders above any of the ones I've owned is my GW Star. It is the one John has on his website showing jacket pattern details. I picked this one up from Flying Yankee last year. The fit and the look and the fantastic HH and of course John's fabulous attention to detail makes it a standout. I still have six other GW A-2s in my closet, but the Star is the star of my collection. My second favorite A-2 is one I picked up from Diamond Dave, his Dubow 27798 in goat. Another great one and gets a fair amount of wear time as well.
