Original 1940's WW2 HORSEHIDE Leather Luftwaffe Motorcycle Sports Jacket 42R M- SLIM FITTING. This original and historical 1940's leather motorcycle flight jacket was handmade in Amsterdam. The leather is simply beautiful and produced from heavy duty premium quality horsehide leather.
I have presented this jacket in excellent restored condition. The nostalgia behind these jackets is what makes them attractive. Born out of a time of necessity, and designed for a specific purpose - to function and protect under adverse and challenging conditions.Since then they have become rare collectables and timeless classics, appealing to the rugged utilitarian image. This coat is ideal for WW2 military museum and/ or collector. Reenactment, television and broadcast industry. The work undertaken on this garment is highly skilled and takes around 36 hrs to complete.
