Type A-2: 1939 Werber Sportswear

Werber Sportswear Type A-2 Jacket » Russet horsehide 1939 Werber

This jacket is a reproduction of a 1939 Werber Sportswear contract A-2. In this contract, one can see a number of interesting features. This was the last contract to utilize construction details such as a stitch in the leather just over the waistband, the use of large ball stud snaps in the collar (as seen in the pockets), and the throat clips sewn into the collar stand.

The pattern is snug in the waist, but trim yet comfortable in the chest and shoulders. The sleeves taper to a tight end before the cuffs. The collar hole in the body is a little smaller than other A-2 patterns, but the collar itself has a somewhat big profile, and is high in the front. Jackets of this contract were usually russet to dark russet horsehide with an aniline finish. Our russet aniline horsehide is an excellent copy of Werber's horsehide.

Zippers in A-2 jackets from 1931 to 1939 were made with a metal base frame, and then rivets in the leather that stabilized the zipper end. We have an excellent copy of a 1939 Talon, though our zipper has the name Waldes, as Talon is a currently owned brand in the USA. Some jackets from Werber's 1939 contract had the newer Talon zipper with the sunburst stopper and a slider with a full circle hole puller. We choose the earlier model zipper for our 1939 Werber.

Details of this contract:
  • usually russet or dark russet horsehide/cowhide
  • slender lower torso
  • torso has stitch above waistband in leather
  • collar stand, with throat clips sewn in
  • long, thin epaulets
  • ΒΌ" top stitching around flaps and collar
  • pocket body with square re-enforcing stitching
  • dull orange lining and light brown thread color
  • large ball stud Anzo snaps in pocket and collar
  • mid-brown knits
  • usually riveted Talon zippers (Waldes is on our zipper)
This jacket looks quite sharp and the form-fitting design is athletic.
