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.
