I just recently picked up this jacket and was wondering if anyone had any information on the label. To me the jacket seems to have been made by Monarch given the pattern, buckles and French seams. I’ve never heard of “Howard Sport Apparel”. I know there was a men’s store in New York in the 30’s and 40’s called Howard’s and it could be from there. The jacket was re-lined at some point and is in great shape for it’s age.
