1920s goatskin leggings with Hookless zippers

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271833931339
These vintage leggings were made in the 1920s, and are marked the Improved Standard Drawer Legging style 912, size 6. They are made of brown goatskin, with a side zipper. The zipper is an early production Hookless, produced before the patent numbers on the reverse, which, along with period advertisements for this style, would place the date of manufacture around 1924-1925. The separable bottomed zipper wasn’t invented at this point and wasn’t put into production by Hookless/Talon until early 1930. By that point, the strictly Hookless branded sliders, as found on these, had been phased out, replaced by Talon branded ones of the same shape. These leggings, of course, have the non-separable attached end, located at the calf. These are marked a size 6 and measure 4″ (8″ doubled) at the ankle, 6″ (12″ doubled) at the thigh, and 14-1/2″ long.

1930s Suede Leather jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281142062357
This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1930s. From the rare variant of Talon zipper, it can be dated to about 1936 or 1937. It is made of brown suede leather, in a classic utility jacket style. From the sizing, I’d say this was made for the teenage market. Handwarmer pockets, yoked back, zip breast pocket, zip front, side adjuster belts. Both zippers are in excellent condition and work well.

Chest (pit to pit): 19″
Shoulder to shoulder: 15-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22″
Length: 17-1/2″
