Count me in the happy 40's Half Belt Vintage Club as well with the black HH Wolf.

I'm like Marc and might as well cancel all my eBay and Etsy search notifications because it doesn't get much better than this for me either. It's the bomb vintage jacket in my collection.

Highly detailed, close to mint with all original label, hardware and awesome back panel design. Beautiful black HH. Sweet! :)

40s Sears Hercules horsehide halfbelt

The main zip is a replacement. I removed the shoulder padding it came with, which seemed to be an original feature. Sleeves and body are exceptionally long for a vintage halfbelt.

That is a nice one. Nice fit on you. Those leather labels date to around 1950. They were short use.

In my view this is the epitome of the perfect vintage half belt. Best pocket design and the ideal length.

@Marc mndt what‘s the measurement from lower seam of halfbelt strip to bottom? In about 20cm range? I am asking because the back of this particular Jacket is one of most homogenous one I have ever seen…
