    There is currently a GoodWear RW18091 in fairly dark seal up for auction on eBay. I've checked the GoodWear website, and found that this contract is available in russet only. Does anybody know if RW ever made this contract in seal, or if John ever made this jacket in seal?
    No information available in the Eastman A-2 Manual or on Acme Depot. I could sure use some help on this as the sale ends on Sunday. Thank you........... Gary

    All the ones I have seen have been made from russet goatskin. However some were depot re-painted darker brown.

    Gary,

    I do not believe that this is actually a Good Wear. I believe it to be a Bill Kelso.

    Ope! I stand corrected. This is the jacket in question. It is a GW!

    And the original from which it was patterned does appear to have been refurbished or repainted as the russet is showing through at the cuff edge.

    Grand thank you Dave and Andrew. The fact that it is a GoodWear means that the bidding will probably go sky high and usurp my plans for ownership. I shall however endeavor to apply such meager resources as I can muster to the task. You have a keener eye than I Dr H. I applaud you sir.

    My life is now complete, being the proud owner of this beautiful creation. Thanks for the encouragement Dave. Postman should be ringing my doorbell in a week or so. This is my first goatskin A-2 and I am thrilled that it is one of the best.
