Reproduction 1932 pattern Mae West. This example was made for by Steve Silburn, whose copies are widely regarded as the best available, being accurate in pattern and construction using carefully chosen rubberised fabrics, individually cast buckles, printed labels and 'Flash' branded zips. The user instructions are in the correct font and sized/spaced as per originals. Examples of these copies can be seen in the RAF museum at Hendon and the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. Condition of the Mae West is excellent. It has been on a mannequin but is essentially 'as new' These reproductions are relatively rare to find as Steve rarely seems to produce them nowadays. If you are in the market for a 1932 pattern Mae West but cannot find, afford or justify the cost of an original this is most definitely your best bet. Stock code MW22191.
