http://www.ebay.com/itm/271244474811
This vintage leather jacket was made in Germany in the 1960s. It was made by Erlmeier Ledermodelle. It started out life as a hip length jacket and was at some point cut down into a waist length motorcycle style. The conversion was well executed. It is double breasted with a button front, and buttons for shoulder boards. There are double-snap breast pockets. The back has a scalloped yoke.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length: 23″
