Foster Sportswear Aviator Jacket

This one was made by Foster Sportswear, probably just after the war.  It's capeskin, as is typical for this style.  The combination handwarmer/flap pockets would seem more at home on a belted surcoat length leather jacket, but the diagonal map pocket is all aviator. Elastic sides, plain back, decorative buttons on the cuffs.
