    He was 5'7", as most pursuit guys had to 'fit' in the cockpit. There were exceptions of course like R.T. Smith who was 6'4" ish, but then the P-40 was reasonably roomy. The tall guys were usually sent over to fly bombers.

    I am galled that J.C. could be so sanctimonious as to:

    1. Believe grain could exist on an early A-2;

    2. Dare not to consult with this forum beforehand and;

    3. Not get our permission first to build his customer's jacket this way.

    I won't even speculate as to how the man spends his free time when we are not being marginalized. :)

    My ELC 1729 is a size 46. The collar is noticeably shallower than the GW's, perhaps because it wasn't scaled up from the (presumably smallish) original.

    The same jacket after 1.5 years of wear. This may not as good as ELC's version and we may improve the fit, but I think it's still a keeper.

    nice jacket and wonderful HH.
    The grain looks like goatskin. The HH of my ELC Werber 33-1729 is too smooth without breakin-in
