    The mythical brand Durable, has anyone seen photos/specimen of their other jackets other than the "Brando" jacket? I have only owned one specimen and it was the Brando jacket, pretty beat up and now no longer exits (huge regret).

    Oh yeah, many! They did regular dress collar jackets, MC cross zips, coats... Pretty much the entire range you would usually see in Sears catalogs, except for military. Never saw an A-2 styled jacket by them, myself.

    Langlov quit producing leather around 1956 due to use of synthetic materials. So the jacket is pre-1956

    TM should be re-named Leatherus Maximus. Or TM, PhD in Jacketology. Something demonstrating his reservoir of knowledge lol.

    I agree, T definitely needs some initials after his name!

    incredible, and thanks TM for the fast reply with photo evidence. By the way, is Durable a Canadian company? Read a Himel article from 2010 but I don't think it's Canadian no?

    Yes, it is Canadian. I know little about the company. I have seen Durable branded civilian/sport jackets. I will look at see what pictures I have in my archive.

    That Durable is a most interesting jacket. Has a bit of everything; working two button cuffs, half-belt with cinches, stand up collar, three pockets, finished in Blue colored Horsehide. It is quite small, A Ladies Jacket?
