Falcon Garments and Franklin & Poe have come together to make an A-2 Bomber Jacket to end all A-2 bombers. Okay, a little dramatic, but this jacket is very special.
Firstly, there is no doubt that this thing is a faithful interpretation of the WWII US Air Force staple with its knit cuffs and waistband, bottomless pockets, zipper flap, and soft pointed collar. This being said, there are some updated features to appreciate, like the fact that the A-2 Bomber is made using distressed Horween horsehide or that it has side slits for the pockets and a lush, military green Bemberg lining. However, the real crown jewel of this piece is that its made to measure and made to order. So if you want to invest in a jacket that will fit like a glove while being perfectly worn in on the very first wear, this offering might be for you.
Available for pre-order for $750 deposit (total $1500) at Franklin & Poe.
