Swedish Leather tanker jacket reproduction

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400946560413
This vintage jacket was made in the 1980s France by Alvin York, heavily influenced by the eccentric design of the 1940s Swedish leather tanker jacket. There’s something interesting about a jacket being made in France, reproducing the style of a Swedish jacket of the 1940s, while using the name of Sgt. York, a WWI American war hero on the label. The jacket is made of heavyweight two-tone suede. Like the original, it has a band collar, an internal row of fasteners with a wide wrap which fastens by the side seam, and that oh so distinctive large map pocket right in the center of the chest. This version adds handwarmer pockets and trades out some of the fiddly buttons and fasteners of the original for simpler, and more practical given the material, snaps. Just like the originals, this one sports a generously oversized cut. While it’s a 1940s design, the whole package still looks futuristic today.

Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Waist (side to side): 19″ (doubled = 38″)
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 24″

1930s German sleeved leather vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281596561896
This vintage jacket is made in a sleeved waistcoat style, with a five button front, turnback lapels, and four flapped pockets. It has a belted back and snap cuffs. The style of snaps used are typical of German manufactured leather jackets. It is fully lined, and is tagged a German size 54, which is equivalent to a US size 44. With a 45″ chest, I would say this would best fit a size 40-42

Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 27″
Length (base of collar to hem): 21″
