Ralph Lauren Reproduction suede leather A-1 jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271688862141
This jacket, made by Ralph Lauren under the Polo label, draws heavy design influence from the leather “windbreaker” jackets of the 1920s which evolved into the A-1 flight jacket. Many of these early jackets were made of lightweight leathers, suede or capeskin. Separable bottom zippers were not invented until 1927, and didn’t go into production until early 1930, so jackets of the 1920s had button fronts. In this period, knit collars, cuffs and waistbands were popular. These jackets were originally marketed toward the sporting market: golfers, hunters, outdoorsmen. This short style would come to be adopted by civilian aviators, as it was far less clumsy than the full length coats of the WWI period.

The jacket is made of brown suede. It has a full wool tartan lining.

Tagged size: M (always go by measurements)
Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Waistband: 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 23″
