We first produced a “striated” lambskin jacket back in 1985 but this type of jacket has been absent from our current line for quite some time. Our Cooper Original™ Striated Antique Lambskin Indy-style Jacket starts with the finest Italian lambskins, which are hand-stretched to achieve its unique striated appearance. This results in a wonderfully “grainy” and rugged-looking jacket (and no two jackets will look exactly alike).
We are proud to introduce our Cooper Original by US Wings™ jackets. Cooper Sportswear was founded in the early 1920s and was awarded Contract No. W535ac23381 on January 5, 1942 to produce A-2 jackets for the USAAF during WWII. These jackets are now extremely rare and original Cooper-labeled A-2s are considered highly collectible by WWII & A-2 jacket enthusiasts.
In the modern age, Cooper continued to produce very popular & sought after garments like the A-2, G-1 & Indy jackets for the civilian market. US Wings partnered with Cooper for many years, starting in 1986 and ending when Cooper Sportswear ceased production in the 1990s; their jackets have been unavailable to the general public ever since. We have received numerous inquiries & requests for Cooper jackets over the years, so we’ve decided to reintroduce these outstanding jackets in our Cooper Original line, all based on the Cooper original™ patterns.
