totally and a medium brown bag

and its a 42 ; )
Nice buy! Interesting jacket, something different. I've owned a couple with this label, one had a somewhat similar back. I think this may be a label used buy another Bay Area maker. I don't think I found a listing for this company when I was researching Bay Area makers. All of those labeled jackets I seen had been very sturdy looking leathers. They appear made to work
because I dont have enough...1930's Half belt Brown CXL HH
I won this prototype, never to be produced IH type I. 21oz black fade to grey denim. My last denim jacket purchase:
Do you happen to have a guess as to whom the Bay Area maker was, behind the United Sportswear brand?
Ralphs-Pugh and Block I'm thinking are the best bet. Many jackets have a "made and styled in California " script on their store/company label. All the major catalogs had some rendition of this script, Sears Hercules, Montgomery Ward, Windward, Sportclad. I'm looking at a Montgomery Ward jacket from the 30s that has the made in California label that looks very much like a block label. I'm still trying to figure this out. Probably never know for certain.
I’m gonna need photos Terry! That way I can usurp the phrase when I launch my line.
I find that quite interesting indeed - thanks for your insight Terry, really appreciate it.
That’s a cool type I/II hybrid [emoji106]

Well done Ton312.. I just had a look at the thread.. you absolutely stole that..
By 7/10ths of a second!
here are a couple. Sounds like a great idea. Throw is some palm trees and maybe a Mission scene and your there!
Tanned in California
That is one sweet jacket.
Here is one I owned. Label is pretty chewed up. Interesting jacket that was found on etsy by another member who tipped me off. Had some issues you will see in the album.
I'm not sure where the other jacket pics are. It was a standard hand warmer civilian A2. Heavy horsehide.
Ahhh...the back that Aero's Wayfarer SHOULD have.
Got this little guy in the mail a couple of days ago...as expected, too small for me. But, it is in decent shape for the age...or at least it will be after a quick little seam repair.
How can I like this more than once...that back is incredible. You seem to have the best luck finding this stuff @tmitchell59
I didn't find this one, got a tip from @lina. Had some condition issues. It was big too, probably a 46.
I’ll finish for you. YES!
