http://www.ebay.com/itm/401023017182
This vintage workwear jacket was made in the late 1930s-1940s. It has a mid-late 1940s Talon zipper, but the stitching is crude and doesn’t match the rest of the stitching on the jacket, so it is very likely a replacement. The jacket is made of heavyweight twill, with handwarmer pockets, a breast pocket, half-belt back and side adjuster belts.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23-1/4″
