1960s Brooks leather racing shirt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272114953124

This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1960s. It is missing its label, but with its late-starting zipper, one snap collar and plain back, it most closely resembles Brooks’s early cafe racers of the period.  It has bi-swing shoulders and zipped cuffs.  Pocket zips are Talon and cuff zips are Serval.  The main zipper has been replaced with a later YKK, It’s a very simple, stripped down racing shirt type pattern, with no extraneous seams or pockets. The cuffs are open style. With the wear and various repairs, this jacket’s clearly seen some action and some love.
Pit to pit:  22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-3/4″
Length (base of collar to hem): 27-3/4″
