    besides the shoulder area that has already been monkeyed with, the area on the sleeve that he took pix of is a little bothersome. if it were an old jacket i would say its dried out leather that is cracking. ebay has a return policy in the event that the hides have issues and you want to return it. personally, i would hold off on this one and wait for an a-2 with more hide variation, like an elc, gw, aero, diamond a-2 to come along....with out issues.

    looks really awful - sorry, does not look like what we have come to expect from BR. Yucky color and characterless hide..............gee, what do I REALLY think?

    Pass for something else.

    36? You could find an original 36 for that. Not a very good jacket and not a good looking hide IMO.

    Ohhhhhhh.........no.... no..... no......no
    Be patient and a nice 36 will show up when you least expect it. In my case ......it’s usually happens when my cash flow ................is a trickle o_O

    Don't touch it with a barge pole, it'll never look right

    Yeah I skipped. Thanks.
    If anyone had something in my size let me know.
    Looking for rust or dull purple knits preferably.
    20” pit to pit, shoulders 17-18”, 23-24” sleeves. I am about 5’4” so something not much longer than 23” back length.

    That’s a million miles nicer than that Buzz monstrosity. Hope it works out for you.
