I thought I'd put up this jacket for interests sake, it looks to be a thirties or forties era jacket, from the Lightning zipper, I would date it as that. Lightning was a Canadian zipper manufacturer and during WW2 they were used in the Canadian Irvin jackets. Lightning was bought by Talon USA in 1955 by my investigation. I think it's a Franco Canadian brand jacket. Aero Leather makes a copy, it has some weak points in the shoulder but I am going to restore it because you just can't find jackets that are as quality as this. Real mouton, and I believe silk in the lining, it's seen better days but I believe it to be as old as WW2 for sure, or at the least early fifties, but I think more closer to forties era.
