Thank you, I don't know if it is still goat (preferred) or already cow, the fur I suppose is synthetic, what do you think?
It sells for the equivalent of about $180, I don't know if it's a good price or not
The manufacturer of these jackets is not given in code. If it isn't plainly stated on the label, no way to know. However, some G-1 experts can spot the manufacturer by various tell tale signs from the jacket itself. I am not one of those experts. In fact, I'm not an expert at all; I just know a little about these military tags and how they relate to the jackets they are on—a tag nerd.So in this case from the label one cannot tell who manufactured it
Yes, the collar might be synthetic as that was allowed in the latter D series. It is not, however, pressed cow, as that wasn't in the specs until the next series. The D series called for goat.It looks Mil spec. It looks like possibly a Brill Bros. jacket. They held some contracts during the 1970's. I have one and it is nearly identical.
The collar is synthetic and the hide is cowhide with added goat grain. These are very tough jackets and will last a lifetime but take a while to break in.
I have seen many pressed Cow G-1's and this hide matches. The spec changed very early in 1971. January 17th. This company was making contract jackets in 1970 leading up to the new specs in 71. They could have used new spec materials. I have seen this on other G-1's. I had a star Sportswear C series that was made just before the spec change. It had the new double ply knits installed. All other C series I have ever seen has had Bi-Weave waist knits. I attribute this to being late in the series, Just before the spec change. They had the new knits on hand, maybe they ran out of the Bi-weave, put on the new spec.Yes, the collar might be synthetic as that was allowed in the latter D series.
