Once upon a time Wested Leather Co were commissioned to make the A2 & B3 flying jackets for the films Memphis Belle and Hannover St.

This means this jacket design was once worn by our favourite actor Harrison Ford.

The original A2 jackets made were very tight fitting with extremely thin sleeves, coupled with a thick stiff hide and for the general public they were pretty un-wearable, so we altered the pattern to fit the general masses.

This jacket is technically called the A2-B, it has the design of the A2 but the cut has been altered to a fit you can wear every day rather than the previous uncomfortable fit.

The jacket we produce now is beautiful, the fit is great and best of all its tried and tested.

The standard skin is Brown Cow Hide (pictured) but this particular hide is specially treated to create a soft texture and drape so you can move around easy.

Skin choices are available in the custom made section.

Image of the jacket is a Large in Brown Cowhide.

Please remember when ordering a size that the chest is the most important measurement, if you usually take a standard 42" jacket, you will be a standard size 42 with us also.

This is a blouson jacket with ribbing, this makes the size chart hard to understand.

For example despite a small being a 27" back it will look shorter in wear due to the ribbing pulling the back shorter and creating the look you see in the films.

Please Note:

Not all sizes are always in stock and so will be made to order normally around 7 – 14 days.

Great Jacket

This a great jacket. I was looking for quite a while for an A2 style jacket and heard of Wested through Reddit. I've never owned or worn a leather jacket and this jacket is a high quality jacket at a great price. The sizing instructions were spot on for me, I have a 46 inch chest and and the XL fits great. I hope to wear this jacket for many years. I live in Australia and I received the jacket within 7 days. Thanks Wested.

Unbelievable quality, jacket for life

I directed tv ads all over the world and as you would imagine, those crews also work on major films too. I was fortunate enough to hire (in my director geek eyes) some amazing creative but tough people. They all had this particular jacket from Wested. Various stages of ageing/scuffing (these guys do not mess about with "unnecessaries" - just bare essentials that you actually need) stuff it in your back pack, an essential part of their kit, no matter what country we were in. I'd always commented on the jackets to the lads and some had worked on Indy/Bond films and Memphis Belle and had got gifted them through the productions. So when I left the industry, they chipped in and bought me one. I've got a lot of vintage 2nd hand retro leather jackets (I love that look) but the quality of this - to this day is staggering, when you touch it, it's next level. I've worn it in all weathers and in all situations/countries, some quite grizzly, since 2010. Before getting this, I never really believed that some items in your wardrobe can be timeless and truly last a lifetime. Wested, thank you. May you too last forever!

Excellent Jacket

I have been looking for a A2 for many years. I stumbled across your website. I was attracted by the price sobI thought I would give it a go. Wow!! Iam a glad I did!! Great leather, fantastic zipper and a perfect fit. My only regret is I will have to wait until fall to wear it as it’s too hot now. I’m a huge fan of your company. To quote Arnold, I’ll be back!!
