1930s leather half-belt jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401086957586?

This vintage leather jacket was made in the late 1930s-early 1940s.  It has a pleated half-belt back, a Talon zipper front with sunburst stopbox and a zipper on the breast pocket which I have never seen before. The pockets are flapped and it has button cuffs.
Chest (pit to pit): 23-1/2″ (doubled = 47″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 23-1/2″

  1. That is a nice looking jacket. I have one very similar, only it’s a reproduction from Aero. Mine has side entry pockets instead of the button down cargo pockets, and is and inch or two longer.
