The Doniger's came originally only in Goatsjkin, that's why I like the Firvestar Goat.. There is a review of a FiveStar Doniger Goatskin on this forum. It is a pretty nice repro. for the money.I appreciate your input, is the doniger the closest to ww2 specs on the website?
Sizing may be an issue if you are 6 ft and 38 chest (you are the same size at my 15 yr old.) You probably need something in a 40L. As you will learn, the size number given by the maker, often means nothing and doesn't correspond to your regular suit size. (I find that A-2's can run one to three sizes above your suit size.) I wear a size 43R in suits, always have. My A-2 is 46) What I did was buy some used Avirex's on EBay for less than $100. I returned one, gave the other to my son, and the third one, which I got for $60, was a perfect fit. Then, when you find a jacket that fits, measure the jacket. I would search for a 40L on Ebay. But the good thing about FiveStar is that they make a lot of sizes and give the actual measurements of the jackets on their web page.
Maybe something like this:
