POUGHKEEPSIE LEATHER COAT CO.
JACKET-FLYING, TYPE A-2
A.C.CONTRACT No. W535ac28560
This jacket is based on the AC Order No-W535ac28560 by Poughkeepsie Leather Coat Co. of Poughkeepsie, NY.
The pattern is a very comfortable fitting jacket, with large wide shoulders, large arm holes, roomy arms, and a generous body. This one just looks sharp. Poughkeepsie does seem to have made a jacket with a rather small collar profile and fitted it to a large neck hole. This causes the collar to fit a bit more snug than any other A-2, assuming you would ever actually close it all the way.
