    Five Star Leather A-2

    The Five Star Doniger in russet goat is one particular jacket from Five Star that has received relatively good reviews. It is very good value for the price IMHO.

    Short A2 for Warm Climate

    I actually goes back to the cave men. Animal skins were the first clothing.

    Short A2 for Warm Climate

    Correct. Think about when the A-2 was designed. There were no artificial fabrics for shells or linings in existence yet and they were still flying in open cockpits. So, the A-2 was a windbreaker for warm weather. Leather was the only thing they had.

    Short A2 for Warm Climate

    I live in Central FL now and have for the past 28 years. Unfortunately, I only get to wear my leather jackets about a dozen times a year. The rest of the time it’s either too hot, or yes, even too cold, on occasion. As far as length, 5’7” would be no problem in finding an A-2 if you were 135...

    Why does the guy in the photo have no belt or any transition from shirt to trousers? Photo shopped?

    USN Surface Warefare Officers to Get Leather Jackets

    Interesting. Their web site says this jacket will be issued to the "top three officers of a ship" I doubt that would be true. The Navy info. release says any commissioned officer who is entitled to wear the SWO Badge ("water wings") will be entitled to wear the jacket.

    USN Surface Warefare Officers to Get Leather Jackets

    Your are correct. But the OOD Underway is the one who gets court martialled when they crash.

    USN Surface Warefare Officers to Get Leather Jackets

    The way the Navy release is worded seems pretty clear it is for officers only
