Beautiful top grain front quarter horse hide jacket in a Havannah Tobacco brown from the late 30s with a belted back to the rear and full length original zipper to the fore.

Original inset single chest pocket with zipper and chain. Two lovely scalloped pockets on the front with original mock tortoise shell buttons. All pockets lined with flannel.

Sateen rayon full liner to body and sleeves.

This is a gorgeous period men's coat tapered to the waist and ideal for driving or cycling or just walking down the street in. Made from fine, sturdy horse hide this is ready to wear and is solid.

Some minor age crackling on one shoulder (see pics) doesn't detract nor weaken the beauty of this fine piece. All in original condition. Leather in wonderful supple condition and being my personal jacket has been well nourished and looked after.

Please read the measurements and look at the pictures before buying as once the deal is done that's it. You'll not be disappointed and if it fits then grab it.
PM if you want it.

Chest is 40 to 42" inch (23" across).

Back drop from collar edge to skirt 28"
Front drop 25"
Across shoulders 19"
Sleeve (shoulder top seam to cuff) 24"

POST will be whatever is the best deal to your home address. From the UK

Price £249 GBP (Which is $331 USD) Payment in GBP please via PayPal.

Thanks for your time Gents. Paddy.

Nice jacket. Can't see the cracking on the shoulder, can't see the interior lining, can't see the tag (is there one?), can't see the price.

Hi Gents. Thanks for your response. Firstly apologies. I thought I'd listed the price and apparently I hadn't so that's now corrected (£249 GBP).
Next question about the belt. Well the belt back is still there (on the back). But I'm assuming that originally it would have had a two piece belt that buttoned onto the back and wrapped around to the front. If there was one then it's long gone.
Lastly . Photos of the Rayon liner and the mild crackling to one upper shoulder. I'm trying desperately to load those but need to reduce the photo size (bare with me).
Only label states TOP GRAIN FRONT QUARTER HORSE HIDE. Regards, Paddy.

Nice Jacket Patty I like the proportions but I will pass. I have vintage a Hercules and a black Harley Davidson in a long half belt style. I am still wearing a pair of Grknson shoes I purchased from you about 10 year past. In fact I polished the shoes yesterday.
