Agree, the above pics look good... for a certain size...The French jackets are expensive and out of my price range but if you would compare them to a2's they are the goodwear of Luftwaffe jackets, every picture I have seen from forums of the Eastman's jacket shows they are cut to long, the high cut waist is the defining feature of these jackets regardless of any other discrepancies.
Look at the photos at the greater distance between the top of the pocket flap and zipper on the eastman.

Here below it looks not very authentic, IMHO even totally out of proportions ...
On the other hand, distances are only a part of a jacket... materials and hardware are the other important parts...(liners, metalware etc...)
