Leather Swedish tanker jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272101282257

This vintage leather jacket was made in Sweden for their army. These were used by motorcycle despach riders and tank crews. They were made in leather and green canvas versions, this is the simplified of the leather version, with the snap closure at the waist and collar rather than the more complicated hook closure.  Made from heavy black leather, it has epaulettes, an asymmetrical closure, band collar, handwarmer pockets, belted adjusters at the cuffs and a large map pocket in the center of the chest.  The jacket is blanket lined, with an internal snapped wind flap. The original changeable ring-back buttons have been either switched out or modified to be wired onto backing plates. These coats were cut oversized, with broad shoulders and long sleeves.  Someone has added shoulder pads inside, which square up the broad shoulders.  They are easily removed.

Chest (pit to pit): 23-3/4″ (doubled = 47-1/2″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 21″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 24-1/4″
