Ja Dubow 27798 (Platon) A-2 jacket review and pics

A 44 or 46 probably Burt if they had all the sizes. My Bronco is 44 (and the AVI Bronco is copied off a size 44 original) and is bang on size wise for me. If the QM had chucked a Dubow at me, I'd imagine it would've been either a bit short in the sleeves if a 44 and a big baggy in the body if a 46. I'd imagine though I wouldn't have cared less back then, I would've just been so proud to be issued the mark of an airman, an A-2 flying jacket ;-)
I wonder how a Doniger would have worked out for you in that same scenario.
Hopefully Shawn will be finished with his Doniger soon. I’m looking forward to hearing the feedback on this one.

I've never tried on a Doniger but I'm hoping that it'll be OK. The The Bronco pattern actually suits my body shape very well.

I suppose that's one of the fun things with A-2s when you learn more about them, is how although they're the same jacket, the different contracts give different fits and feels.

My Dubow has been shipped, I got a tracking number. According to it it has been moved around in Greece for the last 8 days, but hasn't left the country. They're not in a rush, those Greek postmen :D
Blimey! I ordered a couple of shirts from Japan last Wednesday. They were posted on Thursday and came through my front door at 9:10am Monday morning.

So what's happening in Greece!
