This is a vintage pre WWII 1930's Barnstormer jacket worn by the USMC. It's a fantastic winter jacket filled with lots of fine details. On the inside and collar you'll find a warm and cozy sheep skin lining that despite its age looks nearly untouched. The sheep skin is used from top to below the waist, the last bit is made in a waxed canvas. Arms are lined with a wool felt. Shell is made in a brown cotton twill making it soft and easy to wear. The jacket can be buttoned both on the right and left side using leather eyelets that matches with the reinforcements on the front pockets.
This jacket is vintage and shows several signs of wear. It's got two mending on the back and one in the right front pocket, all made in a tasteful and well made way. The waxed canvas used on the bottom part of the lining has bleed through the brown cotton twill which can be seen in the pictures. It's a hole in the cotton twill near one of the buttons. All and all a very fine jacket in a good wearable condition which is kind of crazy considering it's a jacket that's nearly 90 years old!
It hasn't got a size tag so check out our measurements and compare with other garments you own to see if the jacket is a good fit for you. Estimated to a size S-M.
