"This vintage leather jacket was made in the late 1940s by Kit Karson Indian Scout sportswear. It is made of goatskin, in a half-belt cossack jacket style. The distinctive pleats of the pocket conceal handwarmers with the flapped cargo pockets. The jacket has a pin lock bell shaped Conmar zipper."
I have eBay searches under both Karson and Carson. Wide a net as possible. Cool jackets for sure. Jackets with the label tend to be distinctive, with their own bit of flair. Always too small for me. Except this Carson.
When I saw the jacket, I thought 60s. The liner reminds me of those nice fidelities I have. One of my favorites is the very restrain "cat eye" angle of the front pockets. Funny, the angle almost is unnoticeable and lead me to believe it was a production discrepancy. But I have seen other fidelities with a much noticeable pocket angle.
