Information

The A2 jacket was used throughout pilot history, the ribbed cuffs and waistbands helped keep the air out and therefore the jacket was pretty warm. The original A2 was seriously slim-fit, so much so that it would barely fit anyone now as pilots back then were quite a bit slimmer. We changed the sizing on the jacket to what it is now, the modern A2.Image of the jacket is a Large in Brown Cowhide

Great jacket

I wanted a warm winter jacket, but a shearling seemed like it would be too warm for my area. So I asked Wested about an A2 without arm vents and with a quilted lining. I was promptly informed of the color options for the lining, and went for a red quilted lining and black cowhide. I went two sizes up so I can layer up as much as I want, and I'm glad I did, because unlike a standard blouson from Wested, the quilted lining goes throughout the entire interior of the jacket including the arms, not just the body. I decided against handwarmers, so as to keep it as insulated as possible, and it is as warm as a blanket. Thanks Wested, you're the best!

Customized Memphis Belle with Valencia Cognac Lambskin

I got this jacket this morning and thoroughly pleased with it. In my opinion the Valencia Cognac Lambskin is a good choice of leather for this jacket. As far as I know Ralph Lauren is the only big name who makes A2 with a similar color. but their 'stock' jacket costs almost twice as much, and not in blouson style. I was advised in the past that the light leather like lambskin was not stiff enough to support the structure of A2, but with the creation of this jacket it proves that that kind of advice is totally misleading, except if you intend to wear it in a rough environment. But as a fashion item, it's fine! Anyway Wested, thank you for your craftmanship, and I trust you will keep the quality of your products, and reasonable prices and services. I have so far 4 of your jackets, and 3 are customized.
