    Surely Eastman was around the Summer of '43? ;)

    I hate it when they don't write the measurements in the text, half the time you can never read the tape measure, if they measure correctly that is

    Yes, he says it is "THE BEST CONDITION USAAF WW2 JACKE IVE SEEN" when Eastman is clearly printed on the label. Ridiculous.

    What is troubling though is how many reproductions may be sold as originals once they get a lot of patina. Authentic reproductions have been around a while now so we may be seeing more of them sold as original, whether scam or mistake. If they have the proper repro labels on them then it will take a trained eye to tell if they are truly original or not.

    Not unusual for this seller to have 'Original' items for sale.

    hahahahaha, he must have gotten an ear full, as the listing is down due to "error in the listing" ya think?

    A result then! Let's hope he re-lists it as an Eastman.

    I sent him a message detailing it was a house Eastman A2.
    I guess he thought better than to say it was an original.
    Interesting to see if he/she does relist it as a repro Eastman

    There is a similar “hot shot” from the same kind of breed on the crapy-bay selling “ Eastman B-10 polit “ or “Eastman B-15 polit” jackets...surely all “ original” Eastman’s .
    Would never buy from such nest ( brand) thieves.

    I questioned the authenticity of an earlier WW2 jacket from Vongold and he blocked me on Ebay. His action speaks volumes!:(
