Visvim's Elmendorf jacket might be my favorite version of the Type A-2 leather jacket. It's classic reference is obvious and there is really not need to sky away, just make it better. The simplified cut, collar size and use of chromexcel leather works so well to create the perfect leather jacket, in my opinion. I would imagine the jacket would take some wearing to cozy up to, but it would certainly be a piece to last you a lifetime. Coming across vintage pieces of a similar cut, I can usually fit both my arms down on sleeve. As seen in Hiroki's visit at Horween, you can tell he has slimmed down the cut nicely - although it may not look like it in the product shot. European Visvim distributors have brought in the stand out jacket for their Italian shop and if you have an extra couple thousand sitting around, this might be a good thing to spend it on.
