Actually the color is very dark seal and yes it is goat, my phone camera just doesnt present it correctly. Knits are black. I will try to take better picture tomorrow in daylight. Sun is already quite low here in north in afternoon.They’re goatskin ? According to Aero they are... and they don’t look seal brown or have brown/rust knits. ....
If you like ‘em, great. Not for me personally. At £20 a pair, they do look it to me. Sorry
I have been wearing and dealing with army garnments and stuff about 30 years of my life and really hard to say if there is any such of a concept as authentic. Colors shades and even cuts differ so much between suppliers. Even BDUs and camos color and pattern variation is huge from light green to something between brownish green, but that is only what I have noticed.Yep, lighting is key . Though of course we can only comment on what we see posted....
I did go look up the Aeo website. They look fine for the money .
Be interesting to see if VFM over authenticity becomes the cry like it has with repro jackets of late.
As long as you like them, all is good
This is what you are comparing with .
After many years of wanting a pair, and having missed out more than once on Ebay, finally got myself a pair of ELC A-10’s. Seen some service, nicely worn in, plenty of life left in them. Knits a bit battered but can’t decide whether to darn them, or keep them the way they are-I’ve also emailed...www.vintageleatherjackets.org
