    Grant, is that the same one you sent me pics of years ago when I was trying to cipher out the liner while restoring mine? I still have the photos!

    I've owned three mil spec. AN-J-3 originals (two 'army' versions, one 'navy' version) and a civilian jacket. The 1940s civilian version of the AN-J-3 was labelled by McGregor Sportswear in tan capeskin (Matt bought it and has posted images here), so that suggests that Doniger might have submitted a pattern for approval.

    The other jackets were not easy to attribute, but the USN version had some stylistic similarities to Monarch USN jackets, but it's only supposition on my part.
