This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s, and is a civilian bomber jacket style. Some fairly recently, the zipper was replaced with a USA made YKK Vislon (nylon) zipper. It’s not original, but it works well. The jacket has a nice undercurve to the collar. It has stitched down epaulettes, handwarmer pockets and a one piece back. There are vented underarm gussets.

This is a great piece of European military leather. Super heavy, thick horsehide(?) with a great grain to it. Belted back, fur collar. Brings to mind the days of open cockpits. It’s lined in gray wool blanket material and has pewter backing buttons.
