.50CAL is a small range of specialised garments that come only in our Time Worn finish. They will appeal to those who appreciate the nostalgic charm of a true vintage flight jacket.
This process is entirely hand done, which takes hours to achieve. The result is a jacket that is still brand new, but you get something that has a vintage lived-in patina that you can continue to add to from the first time you step out your door.
Made from our superb Vintage WarHorse® veg-tanned Horsehide, which has the most amazing broken grain character you’ll ever find, the .50CAL A-2 is a different spec to any of our other Eastman labelled A-2s. We have used different trim parts for everything: Lining shade, knit colour, press-studs and last but not least our exclusive Crown zipper. The leather colour, trim and collar configuration is typical of 1942 manufacture.
It's a tough looking jacket, with a tough name! .50CAL A-2 is ready for action!
Available in sizes 36 - 48
