:D It sacrificed itself for the greater good!
I like to think they put it back together, replacing lining, knit and zipper bits and its now a collectors peice in Platon's showroom somewhere.
Their Spirit was put into the new Repro A-2 jackets, it's like reborn!

Threads going through all the original stitch holes?

I am impressed how the leather color and shape is identical on your pics...

May I ask what is the current waiting time for a jacket to be made?

Thanx,

Yeah, I'm impressed all over again ;)
To be honest, I didn't even ask about time... Assume a few months. I have stopped chasing ETAs a while ago, just makes one crazy.
My Seal took about 3 months to arrive in my hand, but it was well worth it.

...and we still have yet to hear of any handwringer who has actually gotten stiffed by Platon.

Outstanding jackets and a bargain price. My russet Platon Dubow is the "go to" jacket in the jacket armoire.

Haha I already asked him! I think he will stay with Dubows. He told me it all depends on how well they sell.
I'm sure if he makes the authentic repro Bronco 29191, they will be well sold
I'm eager to a goatskin A-2 jacket from Platon, he made the best Repro A-2 jacket under €500 (except the used jackets)
