    I get lots of request for vintage half-belts, so here you go. This Durable in Pony Hide has a well sewn Talon zipper that dates c.1946. The Pony is in excellent health, the finish has been worn as shown. There is neck hem wear in the light lining, but both labels remain intact. The Talon zipper is well sewn and working correctly. Pocket bags are good. I have not found any loose seams or other need for repair.

    This is an excellent example of a vintage horsehide half belt. It has stood the test of time and has many years left of service. In the Video below I talk about the possibility of a re-dye on this jacket. Just thinking out loud!

    Yes, way too small for me. You get this small then you have to gain weight to wear the next one!

    What a beauty Terry! That jacket is a classic. This will be a "KEY" jacket in any man's collection.

    I'd be all over this if the sleeves weren't so long!

    @ton312 you can do the Bale - Machinist diet for this one, and as @tmitchell59 suggests, you can then do the DeNiro - Raging Bull diet OR stick with Bale and do the Bale - American Hustle diet for the next jacket ;)

    Dude, Bale's gut in American Hustle is legit!!

    LOL. Probably not the healthiest approach. Alas I’m constantly trying to cram myself into something or expand myself into something else. The rare perfect porridge just don’t around often enough!

    The sleeves are usually too long! I can measure shorter.:)
