So Christmas Eve a couple of years ago I was looking for something in my grandfathers attic and stumbled across an ironing board stiff jacket on a hanger in the way back. Looked to be 50s so of course I was in love. I brought it down stairs and asked him about it. He said he was in the army and stationed in Colorado in 1956 when he bought the jacket. The back of the jacket reads “Johnny” as his name is John. He is going on 82 years old now and still works 45ish hours a week at his job he loves. So anyway my grandfather was about as much of a greaser as you could get. He actually was in a hot rod club and I still have the club card from 1959. He always some sort of car he messed around with such as a 1941 Plymouth or his 1957 ford fairlane. His father owned shell and Texaco service stations so he got leads on some nice cars. So he was a very small guy in the military because I weigh 155 and wear a 38 and I cannot put this jacket on after being repaired and conditioned. He was about 120 pounds in the army at around 5’7”. The jacket is horsehide and seems to be of very good quality. It’s not perfect but will look nice in a shadow box. Anyway he said “merry Christmas” and have it to me cuz he knew I was already in love with it. If anyone has information. On blatt and their jackets please let me know. I’ll include some 50s pictures of my grandfather and some pictures of the jacket. Hope the story was a good one. Keep collecting!
