We’ve added our Cooper Original G2 Jacket to our Cooper Originals Collection! Although the SWO (Surface Warfare Officer) Jacket did not exist back when Cooper Sportswear was in business, the SWO Jacket is a dead ringer for the old G-2 Jacket which Cooper Sportswear manufactured, and US Wings sold, back in the 1990s. The G-2 was essentially a G-1 without the fur collar, and that is exactly what the SWO Jacket is: it’s a G-1 without the fur collar but made from the finest black cowhide leather available (instead of the dark brown goatskin that USN G-1s are made from).
Other features include two button-flapped cargo pockets, an interior map pocket, pleated bi-swing back, inside windflap with USN perforation, knit cuffs & waistband, and a polytwill lining. Many customers like the style of the G-1 but dislike the fur collar; if you’re one of them, then this jacket is for you! The professional look of this jacket is ideal for pilots, law enforcement personnel, executives, and for casual or semi-dressy everyday wear! Looks great on both men & women. Made in the USA.
What is Cooper Originals? US Wings partnered with Cooper for many years, starting in 1986 and ending when Cooper Sportswear ceased production in the 1990s. Cooper jackets have been unavailable to the general public ever since so we’ve decided to reintroduce these outstanding jackets in our Cooper Originals Collection. In addition to the SWO Jacket, you’ll find a variety of Indy-style Jackets, A-2s and the G-1 (coming soon).
