Pal O’Mine hair on leather jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271235564659
This vintage leather jacket was made by the Fleecy Mfg. Co of Chicago, IL, under the Pal-O’Mine Sportswear label. It is a classic utility jacket style, with a twist. It has a shirt style collar, a brass Talon zipper, and slash handwarmer pockets. The shoulders are trimmed with hair-on cowhide for that western flair. It appears that the edges of the pockets and the shoulder yokes once had fringed trim, but that the original owner removed it.The size and styling make me think this was probably marketed at the young men’s demographic.

Chest: 19″
Sleeve: 22-1/2″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 15″
Length: 26″

Los Angeles Sportogs leather western shirt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281132689425
This vintage leather shirt jacket was made in California by Los Angeles Sportogs. It is an unusual style, a western pearl-snap shirt, but instead of gabardine, it is made out of white leather, with hair-on cowhide trip on the yokes, pockets, and cuffs. I particularly like the broad arrow reinforcements at the edges of the “smile” pockets. The back of the shirt-jacket has an unusual cutaway. Snaps are United Carr / DOT snapper.

Chest (pit to pit): 20″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26
Length: 26-1/2″
