You did well I love those vest. Looks like some of the Dye leaked out on it. I also like the leather...
Mae West was named a veteran of vaudeville and Broadway. She made her first movie and immediately became a national sex symbol when she was nearly 40. With her hourglass figure, saucy double-entendres, and sinful saunter on five-inch heels, she was a natural bombshell. During World War II, Allied soldiers called their inflatable life jackets "Mae West" in honor of West's famously buxom figure.FYI.

Great vest very collectable ,I also got one from Normandy dated 1944.
They are pricey so take care of it.
I always call them Mae Vest .
Nice find! I never really find anything cool at local flea markets/yard sales, sadly
Nice vest I only have a repro since they are generally expensive as chris said.
Nice group mate, they look great. You should make a late war bomber crew impression with a mannequin now
Very nice score! Can' t see the manufacturing year and the AN Contract stamp, still all good.
Thank you for posting.
