Aero A-2 Military Flight Jacket, size 48, Blackened Brown Vicenza Horsehide
An amazing custom jacket from Thurston Bros. Rough Wear! This is an A-2 Flight Jacket in Blackened Brown Vicenza Italian Full Grain Vegetable Tanned Horsehide, size 48. This A-2 is the USAAF 42-18775-P Type A-2 and features an olive cotton sateen lining, Olive Drab stitching, and Olive wool knits. Nickel Talon main zipper with Sunburst box.
The jacket is brand new with tags. This leather is medium weight, so it doesn't have much of a physical break in (compared to Chromexcel FQHH). It has a nice grainy texture and plenty of body! The Blackened Brown Vicenza is a unique color combination--it is a Dark Seal Vicenza HH with a Black overdye. The initial result is a warm black color that will develop dark brown wear as the jacket breaks in over years of weathering!
