Diamond Clothing Co. will have a vintage 1940s half-belt design, and this is the first test model of the pattern. This is modeled after an original jacket that was probably made by Californian Sportswear of Los Angeles, for the Levi Strauss Co. in the early 1940s. Levi's had many non-denim items made by contractors in that period, and they were good looking and common sense in design.

This pattern has the structure of the Good Wear Ventura, but differing details, based on the Levi's leather jacket that we studied. Future versions will possibly have some differences.

This jacket is made with a very heavy cowhide, not overly heavy, but certainly heavier than typical Shinki or Italian horsehide, and though it's heavy, the leather is still comfortable when worn. The lining is a cotton duck in OD, of the same weight and weave as B-15 jackets. The zipper is a reproduction Talon with a vintage Talon slider.

This jacket is new and unworn. It will ideally fit a person who is 5'11" to 6'2", with a chest circumference of 43-45", and weight of 190-210 pounds.
