I have owned three leather jackets in the past, none as fine as this. I had a black, leather jacket I bought 40 years ago, an LL Bean "Flying Tiger" jacket I gave away to my Godson, and another LL Bean, a little larger, I still have.... A friend first showed me the Overland jackets, approximately 5 years ago. I became interested in them then, especially this style, the Avenger A-2 Bomber.... I recently ran across an ad for this jacket again, so decided to go ahead and buy it. Fits great and feels like "my size," since I could order "46 Regular," instead of having to order "XL," which I had to do with the LL Bean, that feels a little too loose.
