Who makes the most authentic A-2 knit cuffs?

Read on Acme Depot that the original knit cuffs were a little thinner than the ones Flight Suits uses.
 
Generalizing about the exact thickness of original A-2 cuffs is sort of like generalizing about the thickness of hides on original A-2's--there isn't just one "correct" measure. For example, I have an original Bronco with very thick, soft wool knits--thicker than FS knits, and, on the other end of the spectrum, an unnamed 27753 contract with very thin yet coarse knits. But I'm with airfrog as far as authentic repro kints go: FS are very good. And if it is a consideration for you: reasonably priced.
