ORIGINAL COOPER A2 SIZE 40-1941 contract


A beautiful jacket blemished by a decal, still a gorgeous jacket.

Andrew, I dont know if you had mentioned it and I had missed it but where did you come across this jacket?

Cooper Sportswear was founded in 1910 in Brooklyn, by the father of Morton Cooper, who was chairman of the board in the 1980s. In the 1930s the firm made sheepskin and leather garments. So yes there does appear to be a strong family link between the wartime manufacturer and the 1980s firm.
I think they did not cease production. As i can see Cooper Sportswear reestablish production.
