After comparing our jacket to the highest priced American, Japanese and European versions, John Lever, possibly the most highly respected authority on original WW2 Shearling Jackets and reproductions, had this to say about our AN-J4..................... "Probably the best repro AN-J4 available"..........Sun 01 Mar, 2015 9:18 pm VLJ Forum
Our AN-J-4 is made from seal brown sheepskin with either seal brown horsehide trim or brown oil pull horsehide trim.
Double stitching features around both the pocket and flap, and the pocket has a button closure. Underarm gussets, lined inside with purple rayon satin.
The collar is reinforced with horsehide backing and features a throat latch on the front. The sleeves have storm cuffs as Originals.
The back is 2 piece plus kidney panel and the side adjusters/buckles are black.
We offer both original versions of this USAAF WW2 Shearling, Full length zipper or Short zipper with double button on the waistband. Please use the "Special Instruction" box to confirm choice of zipper style.
