Hello, yes you are right. My dream would be a GW but I don’t want to wait so much time, I like RW ELC but In fact I found the collar too much big. If you see it there is no balance between collare and the jacket. GW has more proportion imoBg, I wouldn’t let yourself be dissuaded by our opinions over in the other thread. As I’m occasionally reminded by a good friend, this is an opinions forum. We ALL have our disagreements about things like accuracy and jacket makers. If you’ve decided you want to buy from Eastman and you like their Rough Wears, then you should get an Eastman Rough Wear.
Either jacket is a short jacket as they are both A2’s . The subtle differences are in the shapes of the collars , the pockets, the pocket flaps, and the overall fit of each jacket with respect to your body and your preferences of what you’re looking for in a fit.Wich are the main differences between Werner and RW 1401? I love short jackets, this is why I was looking for RW
The Werber is cut longer in length and a little fuller in the chest than the 1401. If you're ordering in the US, reach out to Charles at History Preservation Associates for sizing deets. He's been selling Eastman jackets for years and knows his stuff.Wich are the main differences between Werner and RW 1401? I love short jackets, this is why I was looking for RW
I'd like to say that's encouraging for ELC, but if you look at the 27752 I posted over in the comparison thread, it was labeled a 44 but was more modern 46.I've never had the chance to try on an pre-war original Werber, but my original 1401p fit much like the Eastman.
