Here we have an early black Eastman Leather Luftwaffe jacket in the thick horsehide they used on the earlier jackets. It is a size 42 and has been broken in with some very nice patina to the hide. Greenish blue moleskin liner, all original and perfectly working RiRi zips and Prym press studs, which also all work. All original leather toggles are present. Slight wear to the right elbow if you look very closely.
This is a jacket that is designed to be snug and short, it just about reaches your belt. ( I am 1.80 and take a size 42). Plenty roomy in the arms and shoulders. If you like roomier, then someone who takes a size 40 will find this fitting more like an A-2.

Link to Eastman blurb:
https://www.eastmanleather.com/ostmann-wwii-german-flying-jacket-horsehide-p-154.html

P2P: 57 CM (22.4 Inches)
Back length: 64 CM (25 Inches)
Waist buttoned and cinched: 54 CM (21.2 Inches)
Sleeve length from shoulder seam: 60 CM (24 Inches)
Shoulder to shoulder (seam to seam) 49 CM (20 Inches)

This jacket retails for just shy of 1100 UK pounds, (1 penny shy in fact) which is a little over 1400 USD in today's currency conversion.

I'd like 500 USD for this jacket and as it is in Belgium and is pretty heavy, I have to charge you 50 USD for insured and tracked shipping. Thanks for looking.

I will also consider trades for a size 42 A2 or shearling jacket of WW era.

Nice jacket are you able to tell me how much it weighs?

Thanks Thuggee, the jacket weighs in at a little under 2 kilograms, just north of 4 lbs. The hide is thick and the jacket is lined throughout with moleskin. Also, the pocket liners are very generous and add some weight as well. This is an estimate so don't hold me to exact weight, but I know that when I send it, the box will be over 2 kg. Cheers.

Price drop to 450 USD, which basically means I will ship it at my own expense. It is a very nice Eastman, I'll throw it on the Bay if no takers here. Thanks!

Sure nice! If longer in the sleeve area, I'd be temped, for the hide along if nothing else. But we'd have to stretch those sleeves out 2.5" or so. Good luck with the sale!

Thanks Aerofan_07

Last try... I will pay for the shipping anywhere in the world. So 400 USD gets it shipped to your door. That's very reasonable for an Eastman Leather product IMHO....
