Just got my A-1 jacket from back from Shaul. Custom fit, custom look, and very professional. This jacket is worth its weight in gold. Whether a retired, active, or reserve pilot, flight surgeon, or flight crew this is the jacket to get BAR NONE... It pays homage to our founding fathers of military aviation, yet its distinctive style continues to set the standard of professionalism.
There are many blogs, and other websites about flight jackets, don’t waste your time. Flight jackets customer service and strive for excellence goes beyond measures. I will definitely by another jacket from here.
A-1 jacket, A-1 customer service and satisfaction
Review by Michael on 12/9/2014
I got my custom A-1 leather jacket last week and absolutely love it. It fits perfectly. Its classic and worth every penny. There is no other website that can offer the attn to detail ( buttons on bottom, true wool collar height, even the tag on the inside of the jacket) of the A-1 like Shaul can. Well done and nothing but excellence
I don't know how you do it!!!

I just got my jacket. It is fantastic! It has surpassed my expectations.
Great jacket and great customer service
Review by Chris Begleyon 7/28/2010
I recently ordered a horsehide A-1 jacket from you, and wanted to write and comment on the jacket and the customer service.
First, the jacket -- it's great. I am an archaeologist, and I use the jacket to work in, so it takes a lot of abuse -- walking through briars in the woods, a lot of dirt and mud, and a lot of wear from carrying equipment, packs, etc - similar abuse as if worn while working construction. The horsehide is tough as nails, and while stiff for the first few weeks, it loosens up where you move, but stays tough and very resistant to scuffs, scratches, etc.
I would advise potential customer to order your an A-1 in your normal suit jacket size or a size smaller if you are of athletic build, because the jacket seems to be a little roomy - perfect for use at work.
As much as I like the jacket, the customer service is even better. I had to return a size 44 for a 42, and Mr. Dover took care of everything with great courtesy and enthusiasm, even expediting the shipment of the second, smaller jacket before the first jacket had been returned to him -- he knows how to treat a customer. You truly can order from US Authentic with no-risk -- that's why I'm ordering again from them. That kind of service is as important to me as the jacket.

I received my A-1 yesterday I was amazed at the jackets quality . I ordered the goatskin version and was very happy with the thickness and texture of the leather.
This is an outstanding reproduction of a transition era flight jacket right down to the button loop on the wool collar.
I was also very please with the help U S Authentic Representative gave me over the phone and the internet. my next Jacket will be a sheepskin B-3 . or may be an RAF Ir*** Jacket !

Received my A-1 in record time and can confirm that it is everything it was advertised to be. Pity the army isn't bright enough to still issue it.
Looks like a million bucks!!

My new favorite jacket!!
Review by Anton Revenaughon 7/22/2010
Just now got the jacket, in record time too and I am breaking it in as I write this note.
You are a pure genius! The A-1 is beautiful in everyway, in every detail. I look forward to test driving it hard and starting the long road to breaking in the horsehide. Though I suspect my grandchildren's children will still be using it. Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the beautiful button work. As authentic as it gets! WOW!
My new favorite jacket! I am so glad the rain is coming I can not wait to put it through its paces!
Thanks Shaul, You are a true artist!
