    Nice jacket. Don't have one (or a Hartmann, my preference of the two) but Nice looking. How long have you had that one?

    Won it on the bay but have yet to receive it. Supposed to be cowhide. I see they are horsehide at ELC now.

    Posted to you yesterday, you won't be disappointed, knocks spots off their current version IMO.

    Thanks I'm glad to have it from a fellow member. Sometimes you need to change it up from an A-2

    Fantastic jackets, have had one from ELC for years. Wear the Luftwaffe for smart casual when needed, also one of my go to jackets when the weather is a bit too cold for the A2. I also don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Got it today and love it, Something different is the zipper pull is on the left side so maybe the jacket was made for a lefty, That's my little photo bomber in the background.

    The jacket looks great The. zipper pull is not for a 'Lefty'. it is the way we have our zips here in the U.K. and Europe.

    Glad it arrived, looks really good fit. Zipper is 100% correct, as a copy of a 'Luftwaffe' jacket and therefore European the zip would always be on the left! Hope it gets the wear it deserves.

    Thanks , I didn't know about the european zippers,Good info, this is my first Eastman and looks pretty solid. The jacket is a bit much in summer unless you're riding. Cheers
