I was not referring to the length of the knits, but the weave. I have handled hundreds of original A2s and the length of the knits varies which is not down to any slight shrinking over time. Yes knits become distorted with use as they do on modern repro A-2s. To say these knits look nothing like they would have done 75+ years ago is stretching the truth somewhat. Here are some from a mint Star Sportswear which show little signs of stretching and they show the correct weave which the BK ones do not.
