This jacket is a late test model by David Howell at Diamond Clothing Co, for the Cable Raincoat A-2 contract. This jacket is a comfy size 48, and is made with a soft but dense kid skin. The leather has a light russet pigment finish, over a slightly darker 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 we have plans to use different leather than this for the production models.

The parts are all typical of Cable Raincoat. Cable used nickel ligne 20 snaps in the earlier contracts, as have we. As with most of the 10008-P contract the jackets were made with goatskin, though 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 is the latest Cable pattern. 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.

This jacket would ideally fit someone who is around 5'11" to 6'2", and have a chest that is between 43-44". The jacket is quite comfortable. The leather is heavy, 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.
