    Just wanted to share this neat Size 44 that I got in last night...416th Night Fighter Squadron, with an Italian made patch!

    Great example of a Dubow A-2. The waistband and wristlets are decent quality replacements.

    Great looking jacket! Love those Dubows.
    The patch really sets it off nicely.

    Nice work!
    Does more than equal justice to the patch.

    It was made by Cable Raincoat from their last contract awarded on 29th April 1942. 50,000 were made. I have two in my collection from this contract both in size 44.
