Mid 1930s suede halfbelt
As I was saying yesterday, many leather jackets of the 1930s were lightweight windbreakers. This one is unlined capeskin suede. Mid '30s Talon grommet zipper, with a sunburst slider and oval slider/puller attachment. Fancy buckles on the adjusters. Someone wore this jacket hard, and there are numerous leather patches on the inside.
