Lebowski, i'll try and get some pics this weekend!
Yup Greg you're a classic! You have to love a guy who's living in the tropics but buys a leather jacket and has it sent to another countryAaaaargh...why oh why... I just pulled the trigger on a size 42 in seal. For this money, it's a steal, really. If I don't like it, I can re-sell easily, and if I do I can even make money by selling my Star. The way I see it it's pretty much the only option left for a horsehide original maker A-2 withouth winning the lottery, and who knows how long the prices remain this low. The shoulder, sleeves and length of the 42 is spot on for me, but I'm afraid of the baggy chest and torso. We shall see, the 40 would be too short definitely. Shorter than my Star.
At least I'll have something to look forward to when I return home from Bali. Whenever that shall happen. I won't have it delivered here, my leather guitar strap is already gathering mold due to the humidity. I wouldn't want that to happen to an A-2.
