Another Forum member drew my attention to AVI LTHR's Ebay shop front. Looks like they are moving their 'older' stock of V1 or V2 A-2s (arguably the more 'accurate', versions), for a SONG!!!!
Besides Platon's Dubows (on another level of authenticity), these A-2s must be THE best deal on the Planet right now, for anyone looking for their first A-2 or something inexpensive to paint & patch up.

Seems only one each of size 38, 42, 44 and 46 available.
If anyones keen, I recommend sizing one up from your regular size. Enjoy!

Pay attention to the measurements before bidding folks... The tagged 44 only has a pit-pit of 22.0472 inches. With a 44 " chest, even the tagged 46 would be trim with a pit-pit of just under 23 inches. I will keep an eye open for the 46 if it's in my price-range when the hammer goes down.

I actually tried a size 44 of this jacket (I think it was this same version also....) and it was a touch roomy, but not by much... Im a 40" chest, athletic... and I could get away with it.
The 42 just fit better and was the right fit for me.
If they go unnoticed and you get it for £92 odd, plust postage... what a deal ;)

It is strange that the measurements that Morten indicated in the listing for size 42 are nearly as my AVI in size 40, are second gen jackets smaller than first?

As I recall, the size was the same for me, but the 2nd Generation's leather was a touch thicker (pls don't read thick, at all, but it was a bit more than the V1).

Just put a bid down on the size 42, hope the size works out. I have grown close to 40" around the chest. The shoulder measures out to a generous 18+ inches.

I think it will fit well. I am a 39.5 to 40" chest and my 42s are perfect. Just look at Dmitry's ATC Hump jacket. Thats what you're bidding on!!
These particular jackets are so comfortable also.

I have to start unloading some of my 36/38/small jackets. Picked up an Eastman Roughwear 27752 40 that was way too roomy on the lower half.

There are a few reviews, and lots of pics... I've reviewed a few on mine over the years.
This was V2, I think... www.vintageleatherjackets.org/threads/avi-lthr-bronco-updated-2019-version.22571/
