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.
This jacket was made in the mid 1930s from capeskin leather. It was a short-lived trend to emboss leather wto look like ostrich, from about 1936-1937. The jacket has a Talon grommet zipper and a really nice pleated, belted back design.
