Amazing reproduction by John Chapman of Goodwear leather.This jacket is made of goatskin as were the originals. This jacket is fantastic and as with anything made by Goodwear the quality speaks for itself.
Any chance of a photo of the Knopf or a link please? Thanks!Something different is always nice. I was down to one A-2, just the GW goatskin Dubow and really wanted to get back into a horsehide jacket. Picked up a nice GW Knopf and made the switch. Good leather jacket time of year in these parts.
That's tempting.Eastman also...
That's a pity, I've just measured my Eastman A-1 and from that it appears the Monarch's sleeves and length will be too long for me... it's a nice jacket though, love the colour.That's tempting.
From what I've read on the forum, original makers A-2's all appear to have a different pattern/fit/cut... what's the fit of a Monarch ? Slender ?
