The Himel Bros. design process involves a lot of what we call “what-iffing.” Our Wolverine Grizzly Jacket is a perfect example of that process—what if the fur-covered “Grizzly” sport jackets of the 1930s had, instead of dying out, been pushed to the bleeding edge of authentic cool? What if they were made with the best Japanese horsehide in the world? Dave Himel only knows one way to answer that kind of question, and after years of experimentation and prototyping, Himel Bros. offers the answer. You’ll understand why we named this jacket after the fiercest predator in Northern Canada.

New Old Stock (NOS) 1930s buttons, with buttonholes sewn with our 1940s Reece 101 buttonhole machines. These are the buttonholes that put Himel Bros. on the map.
Front zippers are Japanese replica 1930s Talons.
Horsehide panels accent cow fur hair-on hide, with a single large keystone-shaped fur back panel. Note that there is considerable variation of color within the fur, and this is not considered a flaw. Each jacket is unique.

My name is Ari, and I recently ordered a Wolverine jacket in all brown shinki with no hair on hide from you guys. I'm wearing the jacket as I write this email, and I would like to express my thanks to your team for creating such a high-quality product and also for your excellent customer service and communication.
"The look of the hide has a deep, dull shine that looks absolutely luxurious and is hard to compare with other leathers I have seen. I am positive that every single jacket in this hide would look just great, but for The Imperial being a classic sports jacket this is the perfect color, IMHO."
