FULL NORFOLK LEATHER JACKET!





Wonderful "Barnstormer" Coat!

Early flight jackets were often modelled on functional tweeds--and so it's no surprise that a lot of early flight jackets looked rather like pocketless Full Norfolks. This wonderful rarity caries on that heritage.... and this really is terrific!

Cut as a Full Norfolk, this leather jacket has the vertical straps designed to hold the belt of the Full Norfolk. Unlike most current Norfolks--whether tweed or leather--this one has a fully detachable belt, and so the vertical straps are fully functional in holding it in place. The buckle of the belt is metal, as are the grommets protecting the retaining holes.

This jacket also features a fully functional throat latch, oversized buttons for doing the coat up when it's coat, and zip-in removeable lining, Plus, this jacket is just incredibly cool--when did you see a Full Norfolk in leather last?

Although there is no country of origin, it's clearly American made, judging both by the cut and by the recommended leather cleaning company. (UPDATE: Judging by the quality and the cleaning label, this was likely made by Schott!) It's also in excellent condition, with only a couple of blemishes--to the front and on the underside of one cuff, as shown.

This really is a terrific jacket, and a steal at just $85, or offer, boxed and shipped in the CONUS.

Tagged a 40, this measures:


Chest: 21
Sleeve: 23 1/4
Shoulder: 18 5/8
Length (BOC): 31 3/4

Nice, part of me wants to grab this, but I'd probably end up looking a bit silly.
