This is from their contract No. The jacket is in excellent condition, it is made with heavy and grainy goatskin, chrome tanned, comes in a size 38. Werber Sportswear was a company that had a good relationship with military contracts, this being their very last one. Jackets from this contract are very rare, and it's a good looking item on top of that.
This jacket is fantastic for being 67 years old, it has very little evidence of use. The goatskin leather has a beautiful dark color and has developed an awesome patina.No patch was ever stitched on this one. The genuine mouton collar is intact and comes in a dark chocolate/rusted tone! The USN letters are painted in white behind the collar in the Werbers style as they should be. The inside lining and tag are spotless. All original buttons are present and in perfect working condition.
Original and very rare CANADIAN Talon zipper works smoothly and its in perfect condition. Original waistband and cuffs are firm and very tight, the right knit has one moth hole and left one has a small one not even noticeable, this is totally normal due to the nature of this material and the years on it! This is the Real Deal if you are looking for a genuine Korean War flight jacket!!
