From the beginning I thought that this jacket is a little bit too roomy in the chest for me. But fascinated by the fine Front Quarter Horsehide, its smell and the perfect making and because of the fact that I didn’t wear it very often (because of the warm weather period) I actually didn’t realize it.
To make it short: This jacket is for sale now !
And before I offer it at ebay’s I’d like to make a pre-offer right here at the Fedora Lounge.
If you like your jacket more comfortable in the chest or if you are not as slim as I am in the chest (my chest measures 96 cm / 37.8”, with half-breath) you will get a really perfect jacket.
Got it six months ago and worn for about 15 times, not broken in yet, of course without scuffs, scratches or markings! You should know that I “pamper” my jackets and most of the six months since I got it I had it stored well in a cupboard of our non-smoker household.
The exact measures are (tag size 38):
Shoulder: 47 cm / 18.5” (regular measure)
Arm (shoulder seam to end of knit cuff): 69 cm / 27” (customized)
Back length: 68 cm / 26.7” (customized)
Chest / pit2pit: 60 / 23.7” (regular measure)
The jacket offered is an Aero Leather 1950’s Flight Jacket, but without the patch pockets, only with the side entry pockets (same style as the “Happy Days”).
Leather: Aero Standard Black Heavy Front Quarter Horsehide.
Lining is the fine black cotton drill.
Zipper: Aero antique brass zipper.
Inside pocket on the right side (vertical opening, the “gun”-style). Depth of this
inside pocket is about 7”.
There is a name tag sewn in the lining, which will of course be taken out with the stitching holes nearly invisible.
More than 25% off!
