    Ran across this one, which looks to be in pretty damn good shape to me. There may be a small tear on the back, but it's not mentioned in the listing, and would need to be confirmed by the seller. The jacket sports a working Crown Zip. Price seems on the high-side, but I haven't been keeping up on current original A-2 prices in good shape. Seems to me that adding a set of new knits would make this a great wearer for someone who's a size 40:

    EDIT: Must be 'size 40 original A-2 in good shape' day.... ;) Here's a Perry 23377 in glorious goat (about a dead-ringer for the Indian goat I had on the GW Perry I once owned) :cool::

    Those 2 jackets are pretty much sold for around the same price if not cheaper than second hand high end repros with "time worn" process added. The Perry usually fits a little snug so a size 40 would have fitted me and I would have bidded on that if I was in the market then.

    the second contract dubows are rare birds, are not often offered. in wearable condition, almost impossible to find. because of the narrow body, and narrow shoulders, a size 40 perry [especially in goat], a size 40 fits more like a size 38.
