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 email@example.com. 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.
As brought up by the previous post, the "Reverse D" was another style of pocket these jackets had, often in combination with a slanted breast map pocket. For wearing around town, the handwarmer pockets were probably more practical than a large map pocket.
