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.
Here's another Aviator style cossack jacket to continue the research I posted on this style several months ago. There will be another barrage of vintage aviation jacket ads coming soon, so keep an eye out.
This jacket was made in California and was sold by Montgomery Ward. The jacket is made out of pony horsehide, and has a asymmetrical zipper (Referred to as double breasted in many of the early ads), two zipper breast pockets and handwarmers. The back has a sporty belted back and side adjusters.
