    Aren’t those pocket flaps a little scalloped for a SAT, or is it just the perspective?
    Can anyone see whether those buttonholes are stitched or inset?
    Zip replaced?

    AEB46751-3000-4792-8C98-D77D1CC37432.jpeg Here’s a photo from JCs website of a SAT pocket . Looks similar but not quite as scalloped. Maybe just a design interpetation difference of the original SAT jacket pocket.

    Yes the buttonholes are Machined not inset. Otherwise I probably would have hit the BIN already. The zipper is not a 1930's talon. Looks like it's not replaced but not 100% sure. I don't think this is GI. Probably a private purchase made in the early style. There are no collar snaps. Knits are probably replaced.

    IMO - Not SAT or Goldsmith. Possibly a doctored Werber? I'm leaning toward private purchase.

    OK, I'm looking at this on a sensibly sized computer screen now.
    There's no label of course and the jacket has been made or relined with Rayon rather than cotton (the stitching looks rough at the neck and the collar stand is not visible).
    Those pocket flaps look too sculpted to be SAT to my eye.
    The buttonholes are sewn keyholes (not inset leather like the SAT).
    I can't see any top stitching to the waist knit, but presumably it might have been replaced when the jacket was relined?
    The collar profile is also pretty curved - more like a Dubow profile than a SAT, but is it possible that it might be an early Werber?
