• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

This is the Acme i bought from Andrew Swatland last week. Great price (£450), great service.
Similar weight to an Eastman, i’ve had lighter hides from GW.
Colour is same as first photos. Fit pics make it look more milk chocolate than it is. Iove russet !!

Jacket looks great on and off!
Embarrassing??? WTF?? You look better than most of us :)
Going down memory lane here but I remember you telling us not to long ago that you were thru with A2’s and you were selling some off.
And just like that BAM .... 2 really nice winners show up on your doorstep . GOD does have a sense of humor doesn’t he??
Glad to have you back in the hunt!!;)

I knew you’d bring that up Burt !! :D
I’m Dave and i’m an addict !! Lol
That’s it though..... unless a russet goat from ELC or GW comes up. And in my budget ! Then god will have proven his (or her...) existence ;)

Nothing embarrassing about those fit pics at all. Damn nice jacket.

What with this and the newly refurbished ELC I think you're absolutely sorted for A-2s to wear. Now wear the hell out of them and watch them get better and better ;-)

Good stuff! 2 wearers is really the perfect number. More and they don't/can't get enough wear to develop patina and all that fun stuff we like. And you've got the perfect mix, a beautiful ELC in a darkish seal and a GW in russet.

Thanks Burt.
I Have to say it’s the best fitting A-2 i’ve ever had. I’m a bit of a unit and have big forearms and shoulders so i normally find A-2’s very tight in the arms generally and tight across the back when driving.
Not with this jacket. The cuts fits the broader build very well. However, i doubt it would fit the more slender built folks very well.
The thicker hide will take a good deal too i’m sure.
