    Not leather, but fit better here than the short wool jackets thread.

    That example of the original late 1930s Monarch half belt I started with.

    Then what was to become a goat hide Monarch half belt.

    VERY nice :)
    Are you also the maker of the button-up one on VLJ?
    LOVE IT!!!!

    **because of this jacket I withdraw my earlier comment about half-belts not having shoulder gussets- they look fine**

    Meant to post this a while back. Knopf made, buttery soft and flawless chrome seal goatskin, brass Talon zippers. Exterior is mint, light green lining is better than decent. The overall jacket is just money (collar has the flare I've been pining for).

    1930s horsehide two-tone halfbelt, cotton check liner. Provenance unknown. My guess is American.

    Fabulous...The half-belt looks quite narrow and shorter than most
