Product Description

A stunning WW2 style jacket…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we suggest it would date to the mid to late part of the 20th century, circa 1970s. We think this may be an original piece made by Irvin (as the quality is there), yet we cannot be sure. That said, if it isn’t, this is a beautiful piece, in very nice shape with everything working as it should…

The jacket is such an eye catcher given the cracked leather finish and the thick sheepskin inner. There’s also a splattering of surface scars and scratches from usage, which gives this piece a great look. With three fully working zips to the arms and the middle, this piece can be for display or worn straight off the coat rack. We have listed the exact measurements below, but we would suggest this to be a UK male size large, or potentially medium. Our owner is 6ft 2 tall and 15st, and although it zips up as it should and the arm lengths are good, it’s a little snuggy…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scratches and scars to the leather, and naturally there are some tatty areas to the sheepskin inside. We would certainly suggest that the jacket is clean, although there may be a little wiff from storage. It’s nothing terrible, it may just need a good air… There is some general wear and tear, but on the whole we feel this is a brilliant piece! Please study all the photos, as it would be difficult to highlight all of the imperfections…

Please note : Our camera makes the jacket look a little darker than it is. The jacket if of a Dark Brown colour rather, than Black
