    Ignore the absurd price. Don't have a copy of the Eastman book any more, but it looks to me like an Aero, and they were known to offer private purchase jackets.

    Check it out.

    Photos for posterity.

    Also seems like maybe the kind of thing a vet would put together after the war if he had lost/turned in his original A-2.
