Type A-2: Rough Wear W535-ac-27752

Rough Wear 27752 Type A-2 Jacket » Seal Horsehide Rough Wear 27752

This jacket is our reproduction of Rough Wear Clothing Co.'s last A-2 contract, W535-ac-27752. Jackets of this contract were made in both seal brown and russet leather. The contract was awarded to Rough Wear on April 27th, 1942, and it was for 50,000 jackets, which is a massive number. This last contract appears to have only been made with Talon zippers, yet we have an original made with a Crown zipper, one with straight teeth. Brown and olive cotton thread can be seen on originals, with olive being much more common.

The fit of this Rough Wear is typical of other Rough Wear contracts, though some small details are often different than earlier contracts. These tend to have taller pockets, and some have less curvature to the epaulets.

Details of this contract:
This jacket is quite comfortable and looks athletic and sharp.
