    Some of you may have heard of Acme depot. But for those that have not, there are close ups of original A-2's and some written descriptions.

    Gosh I'd forgotten about that site. One of the first places I read up about A-2s back in the day.

    Seems really odd seeing all the jacket reviews without Goodwear jackets to be seen in review. But, this was around as John was getting started. At least the name is mentioned.

    Yup, first site I ever checked out for info on A-2s. Not much seems to have happened there in a long time, but still valuable info on A-2s and some repro manufacturers.

    I still check that site quite often. One of the best sources of information about A-2s.

    That site is what prompted my first foray into the HWT exercise ;) I wanted my brand shiny new ELC RW27752 to look like those jackets haha
    This was back in 2001/2
