Memphis Belle A2 Flight Jacket

Memphis Belle A2 Flight Jacket

Once upon a time in a far away land (Kent/Sometimes Enfield) Peter Botwright was commissioned to make the A2 & B3 flying jackets for the films Memphis Belle and Hannover St. This means this jacket design was once worn by our favourite actor, Harrison Ford!

The original A2 jackets made were very tight fitting with extremely thin sleeves, coupled with a thick stiff hide and for the general public they were pretty un-wearable so we altered the pattern to fit the general masses. This jacket is technically called the "A2-B", it has the design of the A2 but the cut has been altered to a fit you can wear every day rather than the previous uncomfortable fit!

The jacket we produce now is beautiful, the fit is great and best of all its tried and tested! The standard skin is Brown Horsehide (pictured) but this particular hide is specially treated to create a soft texture and drape so you can move around easy. Horse is a VERY durable skin so you won't need a new jacket for a while.

Skin choices are subject to practicality. For example a thin lambskin in this jacket would not be a great fit as it needs to be strong enough to hold the design! Image of the jacket is a Large in Brown Cowhide

I received a wonderful cowhide A2 jacket last month from Wested and have been wearing it every chance I get. The cowhide is a rich brown leather that is full of character. I'm certain it will age beautifully. It's truly amazing quality and it speaks volumes about this great company!

Brilliant jacket. Brilliant service. I ordered a custom fit A2 being too tall. Arrived early, fits absolutely perfectly. If there's any criticism the leather smells a bit 'new' but I'm sure this will pass with time. Thanks Wested!
