: From what I can see in the movies, is the Indy Jacket based on the A-2 flight jacket , with the exception of handwarmer slits ? (the original A-2 does not have handwarmers)

: Kevin Liang

: -also, are there any photos on the web of the Wested Leather Indy Jacket ? thanks

It's pretty close, but the A2 has cotton cuffs, as well as a cotton back "ribbon" that the Wested Leather jacket does not. The Indy jacket also has bi-swing shoulders, cut especially for freedom of movement (whip throwing, etc) that was required for the movie. the A2 does not. The A2 has shoulder straps, where the Indy jacket does not. Like I said, close, but not exactly a copy. Regards. Michaelson
