This jacket is a test sample, and the leather shell was cut and sewn by someone who was considering working at Good Wear. The work is solid, and the jacket looks great worn. John finished the rest of the jacket. The leather is quite soft, and full of grain, and it doesn't have any real noticable leather tanning odor.

The pattern was cut strictly from a pattern taken from an original size 46 Cable 27753, which was a rather massive jacket for a size 46. There are two images comparing the original and this copy. The fit is very much comfortable, the sleeves are a bit on the long and full side, and the collar is generous. Note the image of MacArthur wearing a Cable A-2, and how similar the fit is. If more images of him in his jacket are observed, the exact same shape can be seen between both jackets.

The sewing is very good, and all the parts are quality. The snaps are vintage United-Carr original Line 20 blackened snaps, which this contract would have had, along with Anzo and smaller collar ball stud snaps. Both are seen. Also, the nickel plated version of Line 20 snaps have been seen on originals.

The jacket would ideally fit someone in the range of 5'11" to 6'3" with a chest of 42-45", and a weight of about 190-210 pounds.
