Thanks guys. This is the one I was looking at, from Etsy seller OverAttireVintage from California.
I was looking for an early leathertog type jacket without the side gussets.
I am guessing Aldencrest is a retail shop in Alden NY. To me that made the most sense to have a luxury men's clothing shop in NY called Alden's Crest aka Aldencrest, back about 100 years ago. The lining on this jacket looks as if were premium product at the time. The only things that raised red flags were the stitching and shoulder construction. But if this was made late 30s/early 40s then it would make sense since the war would have had priority over all resources available.
I think I will do this. Gotta start somewhere.

Alden was a catalog, but I know little about it. Look up Alden catalog. I have assumed that this was the source for Aldencrest jackets. Now seeing this glove tanned and other horsehide tag I'm seeing Star Sportswear/Kurland as the maker. I've seen this glove tanned tag on other Kurland jackets. The glove tanned jacket looks to be from the early 60s. This "glove tanned" leather was very popular during the 60s. A very soft, comfortable leather, much different to the horsehides and steerhides of the 1950s.
