1930s leather police motorcycle jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271715598736
This vintage leather jacket was made in the late 1930 for a police motorcycle force. It is made of heavy black leather in an early motorcycle style. The jacket has a double-breasted, zip front cut, with snap belt buckles for a heavy garrison belt. It has lace-up sides, button cuffs with internal knit cuffs and zippered handwarmer/cargo pockets. The jacket is lined with wool and has an inside zip pocket. The main zipper is a later replacement, probably from the 1960s or 1970s. It appears that at that time a nylon liner was added overtop the original 1930s wool lining, but all that remains are a few shreds by the shoulder. The jacket has been heavily worn, implying a life after its original police usage. There are snaps for a mouton collar, as well as snaps on the belt loops. Some of these are 1920s United States Fastener snaps, others are United Carr made in the 1930s after United States Fastener and Carr merged. There are even RF Co snaps thrown into the mix. The pockets have late 1930s bell-shaped Talon zippers, while the interior pocket has an extremely rare version of the chain zipper with a Talon marked ring.

1930s RedHead Brand hunting jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281534410261
This vintage hunting jacket was made by Red Head Brand in the mid 1930s and was sold by the Sportswear department of Marshall Field & Co. It is made of mid-weight canvas, with a corduroy collar and cuff linings. The collar opens with 1906 patent snaps made by the Alma Mfg. Co of Baltimore Maryland to reveal an mid 1930s production pin-lock Talon no.3 fantail zipper. That zipper converts the foldable flat hood, (patent no. 1972585, granted 1934) into a wearable one. The breast pocket has a smaller watch pocket which shares the larger pocket’s flap. There are two rows of pocket flaps, one for large cargo pockets, the other for canvas shotgun shell pockets. There is an internal game pocket (canvas, this jacket was made prior to rubberization of game pockets becoming the norm) which has hook closures to open and close it. Access to the game pocket is through flaps on the sides. There are ventilation grommets at the armpits.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22″
Length (base of collar to hem): 28″
