This jacket represents the only A-2 jacket contract awarded to Star Sportswear Mfg Co. of Lynn, Massachusetts.
The Star 18245 A-2 jacket pattern is a really slim fit. It features inset (rotated) sleeves and a uniquely “crescent moon” shaped collar that sits lower in the front and does not obstruct the movement of the wearer’s head. The throat hook is secured with golden finish brass eyelets which are not seen by any other A-2 maker. The lining is thought by many to be a dull mid brown dirt color, but tearing an original apart revealed that the actual color is dark drown. The original Star jackets were made with seal brown horsehide and either tan or a warm red wine color thread.
Jacket on display made with Victory Horsehide Dark Seal, dark tan lining and medium brown thread.
