The US Wings WWII Cowhide A-2 Jacket is back in limited supply!
The “WWII look” is in and it’s easy to see why. The style of many of the garments from that era were so classic & timeless. Consequently they still look good today and will continue to look good for decades to come! Our Signature Series Limited Edition WWII Cowhide A-2 Jacket is a great example. It’s made from a recently discovered supply of mid-1940s vintage russet brown cowhide leather. This is the same type of cowhide used in WWII A-2s. The medium-russet brown leather (a color prevalent during WWII) is quite supple. Most noteworthy it still retains its inherent durability, and is surprisingly light for a cowhide flight jacket. The authentic details & the pedigree of the leather makes our Limited Edition WWII Cowhide A-2 the perfect jacket. As a result you can adorn it with your favorite WWII-era patches. The one piece back makes it the ideal canvas for customizing with hand-painted “nose art.”
