Type A-2: Werber Sportswear

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

This jacket is a reproduction of a Werber Sportswear 42-1402-P contract A-2. This was their last A-2 contract of five, with the earliest being in 1933, then 1936, 1938, 1939 and finally this contract in 1941. The Werber design is form-fitting and athletic, with wide shoulders (and long epaulets). The body is trim and somewhat slender just over the waisband, compared with other makers like Aero or Rough Wear. We have used four originals to create our patterns, and some were a little bit short in the body, yet one had a relatively common body length, which we prefer.

Just as seen on Perry Sportswear's A-2, the Werber design has a 1/4" gap in the top stitching of the pocket flaps, which only goes through the outer two layers of leather (not the seam allowance). Most jackets from this contract are made with dark russet horsehide, though three examples used by Good Wear to create this pattern were of a darker brown shade of horsehide. We will soon have photos of both shades.

Details of this contract:
  • usually dark russet horsehide
  • slender lower torso
  • collar stand
  • long and thin epaulets
  • large-gap top stitching around flaps and collar
  • pocket body with square re-enforcing stitching
  • dull orange lining and dull brown thread color
  • ball stud snaps
  • mid-brown knits
  • usually Crown zippers are seen
This jacket looks quite sharp and the form-fitting design is athletic.
