Foster Sportswear long halfbelt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281030603575

This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s by Foster Sportswear.  It has a yoked back and front, a pleated and belted back and saddlebag pockets. It has pinked details throughout, giving it a casual western vibe. It has a Scovill / Conmatic zipper, which still works well.  The leather has damage and repairs- there is a tear under one of the pockets, an old repaired tear on the side/back panel, and scuffing to the shoulder.  The jacket is lined in Alpaca pile by “Inca Paca” / “Timme Tuft”.
Chest: 22″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″
