    Here is jacket #2 for sale:
    Nicki Gluck-0003.jpg

    It's a 1940's Penney's Horsehide cycle/ sport jacket. The same model was offered by Sportclad, the other Penney's brand at the time.
    It has all of the original parts and is in pretty good shape. The liner is original and has a couple holes, but all the leather seams are sound as are the pockets.
    Zippers are solid and all work.
    I love the buttons!
    Labeled as a 40, this one runs slightly larger so please check your measurements.

    Pit-to-pit: 22.5"
    shoulder-to-shoulder: 18.5"
    sleeve: 25.5" (following the curve slightly)
    Back length: 26.5" (neck seam down to hem)

    Asking $225 + shipping

    Very, very nice. Just too small for me.

    I think it is a bargain. Folks here can wear this size and are paying 5X for a new jacket.

    I did not know that Sportclad was a Penny brand, thanks.

    I have a Monarch with the same green lining, perhaps they were the maker.

    How are the shoulders, hanger wear?

    Thanks, Terry

    Sportclad is to Penney's as Hercules was to Sears. Montgomery Wards had Windward. Seems all the major dept stores of the day had different brands going.
    I believe a previous owner carried a messenger bag which is why the right shoulder is a bit more "relaxed". It is too big for me, but if you've got the correct shoulder span it shouldn't be a problem....

    With colder weather around the corner I thought I'd bump this before I put it on eBay.
