1960s Fur Sleeve Leather Bomber Jacket w Brass Hook Closures
This design has been used as 'inspiration' by many modern designers. This is a wonderful example of the original. The jacket combines a deep brown, soft leather with brass clasps and fur detailed sleeves. The cropped shape and bomber feel are perfect to pair with jeans or to top just about anything else. The body of the jacket is cut to be more fitted and the neckline is high. It closes down the front with those amazing huge brass grommets and hinged hook clasps. Each sleeve has a detailing of fur that runs down the outer edge with leather down the inside. The pelts are very soft and supple and the leather is is soft as well. It's a very light and comfortable weight. It has a very Bonnie Cashin vibe though it has no labels. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a deep brown silky satin rayon. Closes with hinged brass hook clasps and grommets down the front and on each cuff. The brass and fur edges show a teeny bit of patina but this just adds to its vintage appeal. I see some slight discoloration to the lining of the sleeves which does not affect the exterior at all and is mentioned for accuracy. Note that jackets are measured on the interior.

I have a small collection of historically important, designer labelled vintage furs and fur trimmed pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting over the course of this year and next. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go and refrain from any further buys from here on in.
