BRONCO MFG CO.
JACKET-FLYING, TYPE A-2
Bronco Mfg. Co. of New York are very well known among collectors. They have a distinctive design, with beveled pocket corners, wide square shoulders, and tight sleeve tops. Originals came in goatskin and horsehide, and these leathers are available from Diamond Clothing Co.
The body and sleeves of Broncos are slender, while some have large sleeve ends. The design works best with fairly slender people, and as with any leather jacket, wearing it often will make the leather more and more comfortable.
The shoulders are wide and very square, which gives this contract a strong, athletic look. One can easily see the similarities between Broncos and United Sheeplined A-2s, as both companies were in the family of Isaac Spiewak (as was I. Spiewak & Sons, another A-2 maker).
