I saw this pic in a 1946 yearbook and I'm really liking it. Anyone know the brand and model?
No but I checked the Aero Leather website and they have a couple of models that come very close to that design.
Top pocket aside, not dissimilar to a Gordon & Fergusson/Field & Stream half belt I have made around late 40's and previously owned by Roughwear and one other here!
There was no such thing as a bomber jacket, but there were of course jackets worn by aircrew who flew bombers! This civilian jacket is fairly typical of private purchased jackets worn by some USAAF aircrew, especially when the A-2 was no longer issued after 1943.
Judging by how period accurate it looks, I’d say with a high degree of confidence, Goodwear Leather Coat Company.
I saw these jacket in Shawshank redemption movie in the last seen when Andy Dufresne meets Ellis Boyd. Harley Quinn Jacket
Are you sure?
John must have enlisted the help of Dr Emmett Brown on this one, as it's from a 1946 Year Book
It's a typical Half Belted Civvy Work Jacket, almost certainly dating from immediate post WW2, which is when that cuff became the default option replacing the button cuff most commonly used on these in the 1930s
Private purchased jackets by Luftwaffe pilots as well...See the French Cycliste so called "Hartmann" jacket....plus a few other (real WW2/WWII ...NOT GREASE-BAY- )versions.
Sportclad horsehide ?
Yet more Spam for the admin team and mods to remove!
Possible, I do recall a lot of these with JC Penney labels passing through my hands but I'd guess there must have twenty firms at least producing something similar at the time
This is identical to the style we used to made our first ever Horsehide jacket in 1986, it never left Aero's ownership although it's been worn by several staff members over the years, it's now in the showroom display cabinet and doesn't look a day over 70 years old!
