I had one made for me by AL last spring just getting to wear it a bit now.
It's very interesting how every maker does their version of this jacket a little differently. Dinerman would know best with his collection of old Sears catalogs, but I believe they made this style well into the 40's. The jacket didn't change too much, but the cut and fit did a bit. The older 30's versions had a longer dip in front it seems, and later on the back and front were about the same length. The first couple years had riveted zips, blue wool lining, and no chest pocket. Later on, they got a bit boxier and had the deco box talon zips. I didn't realize that they had storm cuffs, but I figure Platon found a photo that had them. I wonder if BK used rubber in the chest pocket to keep things dry.
Fit pics please!!!!!
I've seen a couple of originals worn, some look good, but othes don't.
Show us what you got!!!!!!
I gave them some pictures of a pattern i liked and they replicated it to fit me.
Hi Swoosed; what hide is that??? Looks very nice!
that's the vintage "warhawk" horsehide, black. its very heavy and still new. i hope to break it this winter.
man, I just cannot view Swoosed's pics or Proteinnerd's from the other thread no matter how many times I refresh. I wonder would any kind soul like to post them up another way so that the geographically handicapped amongst us might enjoy an ogle too? Thanks in advance, Schitz
There you do schitzo, pics from Swoosed:
Thanks zhs, that was fast!
I don't dig vintage hides personally, but this looks like a nice version of the jacket
Somehow Swoosed's jacket reminds me of Indiana Jones.
If Jones were real he would have worn one of these or an A1, the movie jacket is an adapted A2 with an action back and the knits removed.
Quite possibly. I reckon he'd be wearing something like this, maybe...
The big pockets were definitely practical for Jones...
Nice one Edward, I remember you suggesting this 1920's golf jacket a while back. It certainly has the advantage of looking a bit like the movie jacket, only period accurate.
