A-2 question from long-time fan
Long-time Schott fan and military flight-jacket fan. Nowhere have I seen leather jackets with the strength and quality of Schott, regardless of price.
Here's my issue. Last two weeks I looked around local dealers for A-2's. I found that some jackets had a more densely oil-packed feel to the cowhide surface. Other jackets, even at the same dealers, did not have that feel. I *like* that oil feeling but I'm a size 46 and could not find a size 46 with that surface. Only the size 44's and 48's had it! This was consistent across dealers.
My question is this: can I do something to give the surface this coating, or can I send it in to Schott for this? I think it will protect the hide for a longer time, plus I like the way it feels!
Schott *still* gives better quality than that other famous brand, A****x!!
