Beautiful seal/cordovan dark brown color jacket with great patina! This jacket is in excellent condition and has aged beautifully. It has that wonderful patina found on dark brown steer and horsehide jackets of the period. This was made by Monarch in Milwaukee, the same legendary company responsible for some the WWII A2 jackets worn by US pilots. Overall the jacket is in excellent vintage condition with only a little fraying on the ends of the two knit storm cuffs, and on the inside lining. Easily fixed with some thread or left as is for character. The leather shows some nice wear in places, but no cracking or tears. Leather is a little dry/stiff and could use some conditioning. Seems to fit like a size 42. Asking $210 shipped anywhere in the world.
