    1. I wrote Ken at Aero several years ago about this jacket when I discovered it looked like an Aero Thunderbay. Ken said they based their jacket on one like mine, made in Canada. Hence the Thunderbay name. I do not know who made this jacket. It only has a Horshide label.

      Additional detailed pictures.

      The Video gives the best description of the jacket. I'm 5'9" about 190 in the video/pictures. Fits me well, could be room for more. At least a 44.

      $350 shipped in conus.

    Sears Steerhide Oakbrook. Early 60s Size 44.

    I have owned 5 of these jackets. Two had the Sears Fieldmaster label. One of those had a horsehide label.

    I feel the early 60s Oakbrook labeled jackets are great quality. This was the followup to the Hercules label. They made all manner of outerwear. The quality declined as you moved through the 60s.

    Pictures and video tell the story, please watch.

    Additional detailed pictures here.

    Price: $135 shipped in conus.

    I bought the I Foster Cafe Racer! I find it a most interesting jacket. I will do a post in the CR thread.

    I had an inquiry from a youtube subscriber regarding their interest in the Tunderbay. My reply:

    I've got the Thunder bay listed at $350 shipped. I think it is an extraordinary
    jacket, great look, great fit. Not an every day wearer. I don't recommend that
    for most Vintage jackets. Zipper is on European side,so most awkward for me.
    the Zippers does need to be handle gentle. Replacing Zippers is something I
    work to avoid. The lining hem could be recovered, not sure what else you could
    do. Not sure how they address the crack in the upper neck lining. I have that
    same crack in other sheep lined jackets.
    Nice jacket to wear out during the week, you will stand out. You don't see
    leather jackets like that being worn anywhere today.

    Is is every bit a size 44 with room to spare or fill with heavy sweaters. You
    can see the fit and hear more in the video.

    Let me know if you questions.

    Irvin Foster leather pants

    Look to be 33x30, lined. Looks like a repair in the crotch area. Other than that looked to be good condition. Doubt they were worn much. Don't fit me, so moving on

    Additional pics.

    $65 shipped in conus.

    Thanks

    1940s Lakeland Pony/horsehide leather coat.

    I bought this jacket in 1985 at a vintage clothing store in St. Louis. I wore for it for several years then put it away.

    It is in need of repair to the back yoke and one sleeve, and a wrist band is loose.

    Leather has no condition issues.

    Rare WWII V Talon zipper. These were used for a short time

    Size: 42

    Nice solid leather and lining needs a few seams stitched.

    Additional pics are here.

    $SOLD

    Thanks
