Wolverine Grizzly Jacket - Japanese Horsehide

Himel Bros Leather

$3,600.00

The iconic and dangerous wolverine is the inspiration of this rare jacket pattern. Adapted from the Heron Cossack pattern, Himel Bros wanted to create an early “Grizzly” fur on the style jacket typical of the 1930's. They designed the look and panels into a jacket style that could have been worn in that era but was never made. This makes the keystone back and fur front panels absolutely unique in the pantheon of jackets. The Wolverine Grizzly is flanked on the front by tuckable deco-flap slash pockets. These kinds of pocket details are only found on jackets made in Canada in the 1920's and 30's and are reflective of the British influence on Canadian jacket makers. This hybrid of styles is a true original and an unmistakably Himel Brothers design. The jacket sports a replica 1930's grommet zipper made in Japan and old stock 1930's fisheye buttons. The deerskin version is made from a limited availability of hunted Canadian wild deerskins tanned in Ontario.

Fits true to size. 38-Small, 40-Medium, 42-Large, 44-XL.

  • Japanese Shinki Front Quarter Horsehide
  • Twill Lining
  • Tuckable Flap Closure Pockets
  • Side Cinches 
  • Fish Eye Button Closure Cuffs
