I wonder about this jacket..... OHHH I see now--- Zipper replaced----That could explain the zipper orientation with the pull being on the left. But what is weird is the combo of Talon and Lightning zippers. These were made in L.A. and supposedly at a factory direct type of place. Lightnings are essentially Canadian Talon zippers. They are using the same patented design and the company is managed or consulting with the original zipper designer himself. But they could not call the zippers Talon.

So I wonder if Lightnings were not allowed to be used in the US and Talons were perhaps not allowed in Canada per their contracted territories. You don't usually see jackets with a combo of both zippers and I do not see many if any American made jackets with any Lightning zippers.

Not sure if this has already been posted or not but it looks like a pretty good condition police jacket. Taylor's Leatherwear from Tennessee. I messaged the seller several times requesting measurements to no avail. What kind of lazy seller not only neglects to include measurements but ignores questions regarding an item? I assume they're hoping someone will spin the roulette wheel or would rather not engage with a savvy buyer, hoping to offload an ill fitting jacket on whichever poor sod is first to bite.
