    A shame it's the A-N-J3 design with the G-1 style rather than the A-2 style windflap and epaulettes as size-wise this would probably have been perfect for me.

    Well, at least it has the epaulets. :)

    I should've looked more closely!

    Could we get more photos of the underarm gussets and biswing back? Intrigued by a jacket that offers more mobility than an A-2 minus the fur collar.

    Asiamiles I've had both patterns, original W&G with the A2 front, and the BK Navy version. I prefer the Navy, its always personal choice of course, but if there's a next time it will be without epaulettes. For some reason the epaulettes always seem to buckle in these jackets and don't sit as flat as on A2's. Does anyone else find this?

    Matt, until now I have not yet shared your experience - I think the epaulets are as flat as on my A2s. But I will check again.

    Also I think the epaulets on the AN-J 3 are a nice feature to tell that it is not ‚just‘ a G-1 minus fur.

    Tends to be after a bit of wear, and depending how rough you treat it, mines been hit pretty hard so initially I thought it was that.

    But then the original W&G had the same warping epaulettes, it could just be wear, or maybe being the bi-swing back it may be prone to skew the epaulettes?

    Not worry, I think in goat it maybe less prone than horse or cow as goat is usually a thinner hide and creases differently

    I loaned my jacket to the most incompetent person I knew and instead threw him up against the wall repeatedly. Far more authentic wear but I began to bruise!

    Here are some pictures of the jacket after about a month of more or less daily wear (15 minutes to several hours a day):

    That's creasing up nicely, BK hides seem to do that, after another 6 months it'll be a ripper
