    Schott 146 leather jacket. This model was produced by Schott for two years, 1996-1997. The style harkens back to classic half-belt leather jacket designs from the 1940s and 1950s. This jacket will really make an impression with you when you pick it up. The leather is thick, heavy, and tough, yet soft and pliable and comfortable. The leather is actually thicker than what I've seen on most of their Perfecto motorcycle jackets.

    This will be listed on eBay on Sunday, but I'm giving TFL members first crack at it.

    Tagged Size 46 (see measurements below).
    Very heavy brown cowhide leather is well broken in, but in excellent condition. Probably a 3.0-3.5 oz. leather.
    Main zipper, breast pocket zipper function flawlessly.
    Quilted plaid cotton lining. A few small holes, one by the hem, one by the right front shoulder. Both could be mended with a needle and thread and a few minutes.
    Well broken in, but still in very good shape and lots of life left. Professionally cleaned recently. Ready to wear.

    Two hand warmer pockets.
    One breast pocket.
    One inside pocket.

    Measurements:
    Pit-pit: 25"
    Shoulder-Shoulder: 21"
    Body length: 26"
    Sleeve length: 24"

    $350 net to me, free shipping to CONUS to TFL members. Outside CONUS shipped at cost.

    Very nice one there Guppy!
    Sleeves too short for me, but otherwise an excellent, rare jacket at a great price!

    The sleeves do look a bit stubby, and as I measured them, 24" is a bit short. I have fairly broad shoulders, but on me the jacket hangs over the shoulders a bit, putting the sleeves where they need to be. It's a roomy, boxy jacket, and a bit large on me, but I can wear a thick woolen Irish fisherman's sweater under it, which is great for winter.
