    Was wondering if any of you can tell me who made this cross zip. Pretty hefty leather, well worn needing some repair and new lining. Main zip is serval, sleeves are NYNCO.

    Dipped my toe in the cross zip waters with this horsehide Beck "survivor"...

    Patina galore...and C&C/Crown zips. Does this help date it? I usually see Talons.. IMG_8233.JPG

    You dove headfirst into the pool. Beautiful jacket.

    Not familiar with this C&C main zip. Look like a copy of a common Talon used through out the 50s into the 60s.

    Interesting jacket, looks like there has been a label attached at the neck? Do some more pics. Sleeve zippers, lining.

    Terry, @regius pointed out that the collar on his R-P was cut asymmetrically (the top part of the double collar) have you noticed this on yours? Or is it a fluke? I can’t tell on mine as the collar is deteriorated too much to get a real read on the shape.

    I love this leather, has grains from start, maybe im biased since i processed /dye it myself, but i can see quick characters.

    I ask for zip on the liner side panel to give easy access to replace elastic and any possible service (popped stitches, mold check, popped rivets,etc.) needed later on.
    Also mirrored action back on the liner too (i try my idea, to see if it helps with ease of movement).

    it it the same shape on both sides? What about on other R-P cross-zips?
    Thanks.

    A few more, tatty lining with missing tag, illegible sizing tag, and added eyelets for the laces...well loved by someone. I'll get a fit pic at some point. It was listed as 44L and ends just past my belt, but above jean pockets, which I like.
