Cable Raincoat A-2 Flight Jacket
Price: $750.00 (brand new condition) — note shipping costs below

Size: 46

This jacket is an early test model by David Howell, for the Cable Raincoat A-2 contract. This jacket is a comfy size 46, and is made with a soft but dense cowhide. The leather has a wax-aniline finish, which will show edge wear over time in a very classy manner. The jacket isn't stiff at all, so it will conform to the wearer immediately.

David Howell and Good Wear Leather are working together, to built a series of jackets that are stock sized and delivered far faster than our current build speed. We have several patterns in the works, and this is one. This jacket is an earlier test model, and we have plans to use different leather than this for the production models.

The parts are all typical of Cable Raincoat. They used nickel snaps in the earlier contracts, and though most of the 10008-P jackets are made with goatskin, we have seen examples that are also either horsehide or cowhide. The knits are slightly darker than the leather, as seen on originals, and the lining is the standard mustard shade. We used a reproduction of a Conmar with the Waldes brand on it.

This isn't the current Cable pattern that we will use, but an earlier iteration of it. The design is quite comfortable, with a slightly larger neck hole and sleeve ends than most other original companies had done in WWII. As typical of Cable, they are larger than most other makers by tag size as well.

Please let us know your dimensions (height, weight, and chest circumference), and we will know how well this one should fit.
