Jakes jacket would have been made by Werber or H.L.B. Corp the only two companies with prewar contracts or was from contract no. 32-485 whose manufactor is lost to history.
pre war Werber
After the war started the goverment let the companies use horsehide instead of the better and more expense goatskin.
: Wow! Thanks Robert! And even a picture to boot!! Thanks a bunch! (I thought I remembered something on the back of his jacket! And just think, I hadn't saw the show in 18 years! Maybe my memory isn't as bad as I thought!)
: But Robert, you mentioned a very important point--that the true jacket of the time would not have been that dark. Question: what color would it have been? Light brown? Dark brown? Off black? Just curious in case I ever can buy one. I might want to have the true color. Thanks again so much Robert!
