In 35+ years doing this, I have never seen anything like this before...custom made in Buffalo NY, with a pinback Lt bar on one side, and N and Y sew-on gilt letters to the other.  I'm interested if anyone has ever seen anything like this...unnamed, sadly.  But still...with the wear and all...kinda fun!

That is over the top! (pun intended). Now to find the ever elusive leather campaign hat...

Great item - nothing I've ever seen before. When I went to school in Buffalo, long ago, Kleinhans was still up and running as an up-scale department store.

I could see it being worn with the leather jerkin.

Or, leather aviator jacket. 
 

This is the second one of these I have seen. I have never owned one.
