Item specifics

Condition: Pre-owned : Split the cost with friends
An item that has been used or worn previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller Notes: Terrific pre-owned condition: normal light wear consistent with leather. Pocket flap edges show light wear, normal scuffs/wear marks to leather, no holes or tears. Cuffs & waist look great, may be tiny mend to inner waistband, too small to tell for sure. Waistband seems a bit looser in front right but goes unnoticed during wear & even when not. Cuffs & waist light pilling. 2 tiny light spots at waist - hard to see. ALL artwork is magnificent, painted to appear aged & cracked, looks wonderful. Heavy YKK zipper works well, all hardware present & snaps marked SCHOTT. Zip-out liner & snap-on collar also in good shape. Zip-in liner edges have corner wear & piping trimmed. Faint white writing on inner side of zip-in liner unseen when worn, may be removable. Inner zipper area on right bottom has worn bit of piping also, doesn't affect wearability or strength of zipper & leather (last photo). Please see all pictures for exactly what you'll receive. Soft & supple leather, broken in just right!

VINTAGE 70's SCHOTT CUSTOM-PAINTED LEATHER BOMBER PILOT FLIGHT JACKET


Amazing OOAK "Puss-n-Boots" WWII Reproduction Art!

Incredible SCHOTT NYC leather jacket from the 70's, a wonder to behold! Sturdy & supple seal-brown leather. G-1 pilot style with AUTHENTIC reproduction art based on actual pilots jacket from World War II. From G.H. Armstrong, “Doc’s Boy”, who flew 30 missions in a B-24 bomber called “Puss-n-Boots” with the 577th Bomb Squadron. The winged 8th Air Force insignia was a popular motif. You can see the original jacket at: http://pinterest.com/pin/510877151449974268/.

Plane & artwork faithfully reproduced, painted to look cracked & aged, like the real thing! Also "bombs" under tallied missions. Front art above left pocket, used by "Flying Crusaders" squadron; knight riding a bomb.

Snap-on faux sheepskin collar & zip-in liner. Shown both ways, with/without collar & liner. Jacket has just the right amount of wear/distressing to make it extra cool & broken in - the look that would take you years to achieve, but you can have it right now!

No tears or holes, few minor rubs & scuffs. Pocket flaps have normal corner wear, fabric cuffs & waistband have light pilling. Waistband has lost a small bit of stretch at front right, not noticeable when worn; hard to see.

Front corner edges on zip-out liner have wear & piping  trimmed in spots. Last pics show edge wear closer up & farther away, also faint letters inside zip-in liner shown close & further away. All go unseen when worn.

Name on inner jacket below collar also unseen when worn & covered when zip-in liner is used. 2 light spots on right front waistband, tried to show in pics but hard to photo & really light. Heavy YKK zipper works great, all hardware good & snaps marked with Schott logo.

Snap-fastened shoulder epaulets, 2 large front pockets with side hand-warmer pockets. Size 40 tag, jacket fits my size Medium son as shown, unclipped. Please note in some photos he pulled jacket a bit tighter to show back artwork. My son loves the jacket but I need the funds to pay medical bills; such is life...

This rare painted leather jacket is the only one like it I've ever seen on eBay or any other auction sites! Better grab it fast, you may never find another - I guarantee you'll love it!

Terms of Sale

GENERAL TERMS

Accessories & other clothing are not included unless noted. Larger items may be clipped to fit models; if we do so it will be stated in listing. We never use pins, which can damage clothing.

Colors are shown as accurately as possible, but vary from monitor to monitor. Camera flashes may also affect color or appearance, so if a particular color is important to you, please email with specific questions before bidding.

Sizes vary between makers & eras, so tag size may not match modern ones & vintage can run smaller. Please use measure- ments for best fit - they are of the item & not the model wearing it. Always allow room for freedom of movement & comfort.

Items are cleaned when possible, except those with special care needs such as "Dry Clean Only" & items too fragile or delicate. Cleaning is always recommended before wearing vintage clothing, so you can use your own preferred methods.

Unless stated as Deadstock, all vintage apparel is pre-loved & pre-worn, not brand new. Most items I sell are decades old & some natural wear is normal. Vintage items are likely to have minor imperfections such as loose stitching, tiny pulls or light pilling - all part of vintage apparel's individuality & charm.


RETURNS

I describe items as accurately as possible, but I'm only human & something may slip past me. If this happens, please let me know so we can work it out - my goal is to make sure you love your purchase!

Refunds are cheerfully given if I misrepresent any item. In these cases, all shipping costs will also be refunded.

Please notify me of returns within 24 hours of package arrival. Items must be sent back in 7 days, in the same condition as sent. Refunds are given for full purchase price; shipping costs are not included unless the return is due to my error.


FEEDBACK & DSR STAR RATINGS

Feedback will be given after you notify me that you are happy with your purchase. Please contact me immediately if you feel unable to leave 5 STARS in any category, so we can work things out to your complete satisfaction.

About PaBV

Peke-A-Boo-Vintage is my home-based business in tiny Fairview, Oregon. I LOVE vintage clothing & finding unique items for you! I look for the original, the elegant & the beautiful!

My clothing dates mostly from 40's - 80's, with a few quirky or newer items that were too cool to pass up! Any item not vintage will be clearly stated as such in the listing.

I run stress-free auctions by treating customers as I'd like to be treated. That means honesty, quality, great communication, fast shipping & the best customer service around.

After 10+ years on eBay, I have many happy customers - check out my feedback. Please stop by often, so you don't miss out on something you've wanted forever!

Together we help keep our planet green by recycling one-of-a-kind vintage apparel. Because it's so rare to find two of the same item, odds are you'll never see anyone wearing the same outfit. Whatever style you love, everyone will be asking where you got your fabulous clothing!

Happy Peke-ing!
