This jacket is the late test model by David Howell at Diamond Clothing Co, for the first Bronco Mfg. A-2 contract. This jacket is a comfy size 44, and is made with a soft and grainy goat skin. The leather has a russet pigment finish, over a veg tanned base leather. The jacket isn't stiff at all, so it will conform to the wearer immediately.

Diamond Clothing Co and Good Wear Leather are working together to build 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 a late model test, and this is the leather that we will be using for the production models. This test jacket has been Hot Water Treated (HWT) prior to cutting and assembly, which has made the grain more prominent and deeper in contrast. The color has also darkened very slightly.

The parts are all typical of this Bronco contract. Bronco used blackened ligne 20 snaps in their first contract, as have we. Though this 29191 contract has been made with goatskin, extant examples also appear in either horse 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 an M-42 Talon with the Waldes brand on it.

This is the latest Bronco pattern. The design is quite comfortable, though with a trim fitting body, and high arm hole. The sleeve ends are quite tapered. Overall the fit is very tailored.

This jacket would ideally fit someone who is around 5'9" to 6'0", and have a chest that is between 41-43". The jacket is quite comfortable. The leather is dense, but soft, so stiffness is not an issue. The grain will only get better with time in the jacket.

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