German Motorcycle Leather Jacket
Size Medium , please do check measurements below as no size label available
This is in stunning overall condition inside and out for its age, has a couple of repair patches to elbows (see pics) otherwise just pretty minor wear/scuffing from use and a beautiful patina. Looks Superb. Lining very good overall also but with some wear in places.
Features... Rounded collar, Main 'Riri' Zipper, Zipp 'Lightning Bolt' Zippers to all pockets and cuffs which are stamped on the underside with D.R.P Nurnberg, Cotton checked lining. The presence of this particular type of Zipper dates the jacket to pre 1944 which is the point at which the lightning bolt was dropped from the zipp. This is most likely mid to late 1930s
This is the exact type of jacket as worn by German Luftwaffe Fighter pilots during WW2. Essentially they were civilian motorcycle Jackets procured by the Germany Army for use by their Pilots. They were very suitable for use in the tighter confines of fighter plane cockpits. Without any insignia its impossible to know for sure whether this was ever used by a german fighter pilot but it is also known that a lot of pilots at the time wore their jackets without insignia. Regardless this is an extremely fine example of a Geman wartime Jacket.
