Description

The original maker:

The Rough Wear Clothing Co. Middletown Pennsylvania.

They were one of the most prolific of the wartime contractors, producing thousands of flight jackets throughout the 30s and 40s. The 1401 was one of several contracts awarded to them for A-2s, in 1941.

The reproduction:

Made from premium, 100% veg-tanned, Italian horsehide this model is finished in a semi-aniline finish as per the original. The handle and the finish exudes quality and appearance giving you a jacket of the highest end in authentic recreations.

Naturally all other details such as cut and stitch style have been faithfully reproduced to the finest detail, giving you a reproduction so accurate it could be mistaken for a dead-stock original.

The Eastman Rough Wear® 1401 is another front runner from our A-2 stable!

Available in sizes: 36 - 48
