Was $129 plus shipping, Now only $100 shipped in CONUS and CANADA.

1950s Long Half-Belt in used condition. The chain-pull chest zipper and main zipper are in working order. Zipper is a Talon brand zipper. Jacket has two flap pockets, hand-warmer pockets and chest pocket. No inside pockets. Jacket is missing tags, but looks to be from the 1950s and made from horsehide.

The jacket has some wear on the shoulders and back. Lots of fading where brown is showing through the black surface dye. It is also missing one sleeve button, has a replacement button on one side of the back, is missing the two parts of the front belt and has lots of tears in the lining. The thread has come loose on a few seems on one of the arms. The jacket looks like it has been restitched in a few places. There is a small crack developing on one shoulder (see photo), which could be patched or left as is.

Please see photos and measurements. Fits like a size 40.


Shoulder to shoulder: 19 inches
Chest, from pit to pit: 21 inches
Sleeves, from shoulder to cuff: 23 inches
Length, from back bottom of collar to hem: 27 inches
