    I saw this pic in a 1946 yearbook and I'm really liking it. Anyone know the brand and model? IMG_7581.JPG

    No but I checked the Aero Leather website and they have a couple of models that come very close to that design.

    Top pocket aside, not dissimilar to a Gordon & Fergusson/Field & Stream half belt I have made around late 40's and previously owned by Roughwear and one other here!

    There was no such thing as a bomber jacket, but there were of course jackets worn by aircrew who flew bombers! This civilian jacket is fairly typical of private purchased jackets worn by some USAAF aircrew, especially when the A-2 was no longer issued after 1943.

    Judging by how period accurate it looks, I’d say with a high degree of confidence, Goodwear Leather Coat Company.
