A blog about the history of vintage leather jacket fashion and fashion production. I'm always looking for pictures of cool stuff send me some pics of your grandpa in a cool leather jacket and a story! I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently making my own leather jackets in Canada. Ask me and I will try and help you with whatever you need to know. Just click on comments at the bottom of each post to leave me a message or comment.
An uncommon variant in this 1940s time frame was the button front aviator jacket. The example below dates from 1946, and while the original style was a zipper fronted version of what basically was a double breasted style, this button fronted version only has a single row of buttons.
