Didn't someone used to make a C-2 sweater? Was it Eastman?
I would love to see it produced again.
Willis & Geiger used to make an acceptable repro but that’s the only one I’ve been able to find. They’ve been out of production for a while but occasionally they pop up on eBay.
Hope that helps.
Pike Brothers make them and they are available from Aero Leather.
I checked the aero website but couldn’t locate them. Do you have a link or can you direct me to that section?
I would love to see a cheaper repro of this, that Pike C-2 is crazy expensive. I already suggested it to Bronson, but they are not planning to make this one.
Go to the Aero clothing section and scroll down to tees and sweats , it's in there. I have one and it's great, ideal under jacket garment and easy to take off in the pub when it gets to warm!!
I couldn't find either one at Aero or Pike.
Blimey Greg, I thought the Pike Brothers one was a decent price! Wait till you see the Real McCoy version for a price shock!
I know not military original but I like the blue version.
Looks like American Classics have the Pike Brother C-2 in green
On the Aero site they are £145. They've gone up since I got mine.
and I’ve just seen American classics have them in blue too.
Now this is crazy expensive...I love it, but £465...they do the olive drab version too...go on, have one of each!
Unfortunately I live in a country where a nice full meal costs 4-5 pounds, and salaries are equally low. So I guess it's as if someone tried to sell a C-2 to a British for 3-400 pounds. No wonder I'm so hooked on cheap Chinese repros
Sorry Greg, I hope my post didn’t seem rude, it wasn’t meant to be.
How's the fit on the Pike Brothers C-2? All I see is S, M, L & XL.
No, not at all, don't worry I just placed an order for an 80 pound Niffi A-1 sweater, feeling guilty for spending so much, but who knows, it's all about pushing the envelope, maybe I'll bite the bullet and save up for a C-2
I will look and see what size my c-2 is when I get home and let you know.
This Is my Pike Brothers c-2, it’s a size medium, my chest measurement is 41 inches, But most of my jackets are a 40r. Hope this helps.
Looks good, but since I am anal, I would like a C-2 with a numbered size on it like an original.
Is there anyone that makes one that has correct labels?
