Probably 50's, but that's just a guess. Cool find!
On the subject of vintage, I got this in the mail while I was out of town. Paid up a bit for it, but I think I got it for a steal. Especially considering how hard it is to find vintage leather jackets from this era in my size (42-44). A vintage shawl collar leather barnstormer has been on my "Want" list for a long time. The fact that it's a Sears' Hercules label is just icing on the cake. I'm thinking 1930's. Has the original belt. Perfect amount of patina. Sheepskin lining and collar are in fantastic shape.
My question for you all; is there a way to tell if this is horsehide?

I was on the fence on it, thought it might be too loud, But my wife liked it, so........
