    Hercules Halfbelt. I believe made by California sportswear. Only fitting it returns to the city where this retailer was built. I was aggressive. Knew I had to be.

    Well done sir. Yes I’d agree, you blew my measly $$ bid right out of the water.:cool: Another great looking half belt. Not the best seller pics but it looks to be in great shape.

    There’s always a bit of fear when it comes to dimly lit pics and measurements which are clearly wildly inaccurate. I would not have been as aggressive if I had not already owned on of these in that size. Hopefully the guy ships it today, and I can have it by the weekend!

    Differently, a nice take of the knit jacket with the square pockets

    This Monarch is in the mail. Another gamble but I did not wager much.

    Just got this beautiful G1 in from eBay. This is the seller's photo as I neglected to take any prior to dumping it at the cleaners to get the musty smell out.

    Vintage A-2 deck jacket came in, took a few quick pics. This is a great jacket!

    I know it’s not THE UTLIMATE BOMBPROOF WINTER ARMOR and why everyone and their cousin is making N-1 versions…but this one has a great feel for our non-snowy winters

    Starting to feel like Amy Winehouse. I couldn’t lay off it. @Yamahana this one might be too big for me, maybe ok for you!

    Just got the Californian back from Dena and it is pretty darn nice with a spanking clean new lining, inside pocket, new hand warmer pocket pouches, and cuff buttons, trying to keep to the original design as much as possible.
    Wanted to take it in as the P to P is a bit large, but no can do. Did manage to squeeze a bit more length in the sleeves.

    For me a perfect fit vintage probably isn't going to happen, but this fits good enough for me.

    I can't recall this one. Another California Chrome Tanned Steerhide half-belt by California Sportswear. I think it is a great fit vintage or new.

    I see the graining of the Grain. I still have one of these Chromies that is pretty unworn.

    I'm thinking this Chrome Tanned label is late 50s.
