Extremely rare german horse hide jacket with detachable zip in kidney belt, no road rash, felt liner, quilted elbows, shoulders and skir, zipp zippers all work - the left chest pull on the zipper is detahced and lost... You can move the zipper all the way open or closed, on the photo I was just lazy and didnt push it all the way closed.. There is a tiny wear area belt this same zipper see pic. The leather is clean and supple with no scarring or rashes - a few tiny marks only not worth photographing - leather is thick and is most likely horse hide.
This was manufactured in PFORZHEIM germany for KLEIDUNG clothing - its age could be 1960s or earliest 70s... It could be earlier but the printed nylon ribbon tag makes me suspect it is 60s era - if you have more information on this company please contact me..
I was unable to find any other jackets while researching from this company... This is extremely well made, sturdy - with adjustable rear belt and the kidney belt is also adjustable.
