mazing 1940s-1950s Horsehide bomber in excellent condition! The leather is very thick and strong and is in excellent condition and seems like it was barely worn! Only a little bit of fading showing on the shoulder, edges of zipper and collar, and a little on the lower back. Fabric on hem and cuffs is pretty worn, showing some holes and tears, but this only adds to the character. Cotton lining inside pockets has been repaired stitched in a fe small places. Quilted Sharkskin lining is also clean and in good condition (only a very small area has been stitched in the lining, near the sleeve lining). Sleeve lining appears to be cotton drill, also in excellent condition. The main zipper has "RAYMO" written across, is brass and is still working well. The jacket can stand on its own, just like the $1000 aero horsehide jackets. Get this original at a fraction of the price of a reproduction! This jacket has two flap pockets and two hand-warmer pockets. Jacket fits like an old-fashioned 38, and is a flattering slimmer fit than many modern bombers.


Shoulder to shoulder: 18 inches
Chest, across front from pit to pit: 20 inches
Sleeves, from shoulder to cuff: 23 inches
Length, from back bottom of collar to hem: 23 1/2 inches
