WWII Government Issue A-2 Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on December 2, 2019):
I was so nervous ordering a jacket from across the country. I’m a big guy who’s usually buying XL or XXL in my clothing. I doubted I could find the right fit without trying coats on endlessly.
I also yearned to own an A2 as worn by Steve McQueen in the Great Escape or Gregory Peck in 12 O’clock High. And I wanted mine in black, just like theirs.
I rolled the dice and emailed Cockpit USA with my measurements. With lightening speed, Shanice gave me the best sizes for three of my favorite jackets based on the info I gave her. I pulled the trigger on the A2.
The jacket arrived 1 week later. I was afraid to open the box in case there was a problem. But when I opened the box and saw the beautiful A2 in there, I broke out into the widest grin. And then the moment of truth: trying it on.
It fit perfectly. It looked fantastic on me. I couldn’t believe it. Thank you so much for delivering on a great product with wonderful service!
