Vintage 1930's / 1940's German Leather Motorcycle / Luftwaffe Jacket.

There are no makers labels at all. This was sold to me as French made jacket. However, I've dated the jacket based on the stamps on the pocket zips - "Zipp DRP Nurnburg." What detail I can find says that this factory at 69 Hoefenerstrasse in Nürnberg operated until 1945 using forced labour. Post war zips were stamped "ZIPP Werk GmbH"

Double row of leather covered buttons provide the main closure, with two early type grooved snap fasteners at the collar.

The jacket conforms closely to the pattern of many personal purchase Luftwaffe jackets made before and during WWII.

This is an original 1930's / 1940's motorcyclist's Luftwaffe jacket, in good condition for a garment that is 80 years old. There have been a few small repairs over the years, but there are no rips or tears to the lining or shell.

Authentic 1930's slightly boxy fit that sits on the hips just right.

The shell feels like sheep skin, has a wonderful supple soft feel to it and fantastic patina. The lining feels like moleskin. The jacket is slightly musty from storage but has had a thorough clean. I've treated the leather with leather balm.

Only selling this piece as it doesn't quite suit me. I'm thinning out my collection of vintage and heritage clothing, so please do have a look at my other items.

No labels, but fits like a Small / 38". Please check measurements below.
