I picked up this 1940's/1950's Horsehide Aviator-style Police Jacket from a Flea Market this weekend.  It's in Excellent condition. Has Bi-Swing and belted back with side buckles, zipper has been replaced with Conmar, 20's/30's-style button snap cuff and thick lining.  Size tag is worn out, but it fits me perfect so I suspect it to be a size 38.  The vendor was asking $200, but I talked him down to $150.  Pretty good deal, I must say.  I also picked up a nice early 1950's forest green corduroy button loop pullover shirt for $25.  I'm sure I coulda talked him down to at least fifteen, but it was his first sale of the day and I didn't want to offend him.
