Gibson and Barnes A-2

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281195687466
This is an older Gibson & Barnes reproduction of a WWII Army Air Corps A-2 flight jacket. It is made of heavy russet brown leather, with dark brown knits. The pockets are authentic patch style, not the hand-warmer style they are currently using. The jacket has a one piece back. The jacket has a Scovill Gripper Zipper and Scovill snaps. The tag is long since missing, but the cut, detailing, hardware, and liner color and material identify it as an older G&B.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to Shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to end of knit cuff): 25″
Length (to end of knit waistband): 24″

Blue Steerhide Campus leather jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281038687855

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″    Photobucket
