Hi all,
I’m struggling to work out where to post this as I’ve just joined the site but I need some help working out an estimate for this jacket.
I have recently inherited it and I’m looking to sell it on to someone who will love it as it is too big for me!
Any help would be really appreciated :)
Thank you, K.

Hi K - well, the label says B-3 jacket, which was a shearling jacket used by the U.S. Army Air Force in World War II, but this isn't an original (if you google pictures, originals look way different - they all had off-white fleece, to start with). This looks like a jacket made as an homage to the B-3 style on a mass production scale sometime between the late '80s and early 2000s. I'm sure other people could make a more precise guess than me, but I'd say it's value on eBay would be somewhere between $50-$200. You might want to hold onto it until the Christmas season, though, since you'll get a better price then.

Hi! Thank you for your help. I was thinking somewhere in that region so I hope someone would like it for round that price. I’m sorry about posting on your board earlier, I have just made the account and am still coming to grips with navigating it. Thanks again for your help.

Happy to help - and no problem about earlier. All's well that ends well. Good luck with the sale, and if you decide to pursue the leather jacket hobby, feel free to stick around.
