This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s by Campus sportswear. It is made of navy blue steerhide, with an attached belt and mouton collar. It has a talon zipper with a lucky rabbits foot pull. It has a green quilted liner, and is tagged a size 18- these jackets were targeted towards high school and college kids, hence the sizing. Please go by the measurements. There is some wear to the leather, but no real damage. I’ve attached a photo of this jacket next to a black leather jacket to give an idea of the color difference.Chest: 19-1/2″ (doubled = 39″)Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
