    Closest thing to the Real McCoy‘s A2?

    I‘m trying to find the closest thing to the Real McCoy‘s own „contract 41-6330 P“ A2, but by a European manufacturer, i.e. Aero, Bill Kelso, Eastman, etc. This is because I live in Berlin. I love everything about the RMC jacket — the leather, the color, the collar, the epaulets, the pockets...

    Aero's Perry (aka unknown 1756) pattern?

    For those who owns the Aero Leather's unknown 1756, most likely a Perry jacket, please kindly comment on the body pattern vs. their 15142 or 18775? Historically, it seems highly plausible that the same manufacturer tended to keep the pattern throughout their contracts and just make local...
