For Sale:
Vintage Schott G-1 bomber

Will Ship To: Anywhere

DROP from 150 to 100 shipped CONUS. I know it's not in season.

The father of all bombers (the leather daddy, if you will), the G-1 bomber is the classic of classics when it comes to leather jackets, matched only by Schott's other icons, the similar A-2 and the Perfecto black motorcycle jacket. It's dark brown with a brown faux fur collar, lined in pile, sleeves lined with quilted fabric. It closes with snaps at the top and bottom of the covered placket, which closes with a beefy Talon zipper.

This jacket is size 42 and in great shape for its age. Some stitching has come loose at the righthand pocket--this is repairable although I think it adds character. Relevant area shown in photo.

I had this jacket professionally cleaned by a leather specialist, and it has not been worn since.

It's tagged a size 42 and the measurements bear that out; however, it's lined, the leather is TOUGH, and the model is designed to hit near the waist, so in my opinion this is best for someone who usually wears a size 40 and is 6 ft tall or shorter.

A new G-1 bomber from Schott runs near $1000. Well-made vintage models routinely go for hundreds of dollars. There are poor reproductions out there from the 80s Top Gun-fueled leather jacket boom; this is not one of them.

Measurements: to come
