The J.A. Dubow Mfg Co was located in Chicago Illinois and this was the 4th and last contract for A-2 jackets they received, in 1943. Known for using a berry coloured knit, this maker has other distinct house-style features such as deep lob pocket flaps and pointed collar. Among collectors of original examples, this is one of the more sought after makers.
Made from premium grade veg-tanned horsehide, which is specially created to emulate the broken-grain character that is often found on originals, our recreation of this model offers the ultimate in products of this genre.
The 100% veg-tanned Horsehide is traditionally tanned and sourced from Italy. There is only one way to describe it: Outstanding! Those who appreciate and understand the endearing feel and appearance of an original vintage garment, will be positively 'blown-away' by the character and quality of this amazing hide.
Naturally, our reproduction emulates every detail of this contract's house style to the last stitch, giving you a reproduction so accurate it could be mistaken for a dead-stock original.
Available in sizes: 36 - 48
