    I'll take the Californian jacket if you still have it.

    If the other potential buyers pass, that is.

    Terry, I'm pretty interested in the United Sportswear jacket "mechanic's special" let's talk about it. Thanks

    Alden brand Windward Style horsehide jacket, 46/48. Very nice condition clean in and out. Aero reproduced this style with the Windward name. The only difference are the set in sleeves on the Windward. I have both pictured in the Video.

    My Windward is too small and the Alden too big! This jacket should be snug at the waist and blouse out, like a "Ricky" style jacket. This one is just too big for me.

    It will look great on the right size.

    Chest: 24
    Shoulder: 20
    Length: 25
    Sleeve: 26

    Price: SOLD

    Vintage 60s European steerhide leather jacket. Probably eastern Europe.

    I'm 5'9" 185 in the pictures. I'm calling this one a 42 since I typically wear a size 44 and this one is tight on me.

    Chest: 22
    Shoulders: 19
    Sleeve: 24
    Length: 25

    The leather and lining are in very nice condition. Both snaps on the sleeve cuffs will need attention. One side is better but both need attention to close. The zipper is good working order and well sewn. The interior is good and does provide some warmth. Has an inside pocket.

    The collar is an aftermarket addition. I've thought about removing it, but just left it alone.

    Interesting jacket that is in good condition and unique.


    Price: $SOLD

    Classic 1940s Horsehide action back Half-Belt. The video gives the best description. I've had work done as described. The upper left arm is flaking.

    Not the best and not the worst.

    I can wear this at 5'9" 190. I call it a 42.


    Price: SOLD

    Thanks, T.

    @tmitchell59 Terry, are you posting everything you selling here or do you have other channels/pages you use? I certainly don't want to miss out on anything in my size 40.. Thanks!

    edit: for example that smaller Windward you show in that Aldens video... looking for one of these in good condition for a good while, so I'd hate missing out on a chance like that, assuming it would fit me ofcourse.

    Thanks, good question. I'm trying to keep jackets in this thread on this forum first. I'm not using etsy right now. I do go to ebay, but most are offered here first.

    Thanks, good to know. I'll follow you on ebay then and keep my eyes out both here and there.

    Terry, you don't plan on moving that LW trucker, right? :)

    Yeah... Can't get that jacket out of my mind. It's really perfect.

    Don't you have a Vanson leather Trucker? If I recall, that was an amazing looking jacket too!
  13. Monitor

    Well, yeah but that's a completely different jacket. Mine is a Levi's style and this is Lee. It's like comparing Reed CR to Kehoe, two completely different jackets.

    ...saddest part is that I actually see it this way. XD

    When it moves you will be first to know. I promise. It is an amazing jacket. Yes, the Lee style is more to my liking than the Levi. I've always worn Lee denim jackets.

    The LW doesn't really fit me and I'm not really getting smaller!

    I've only shipped out of the US through ebay. I need to go international from my home. Just don't like the extra work. You may be the first.

    OK, how about a little friendly competition. What size is it? Where can I look at it?:) But, if it is too small for Terry, it is probably too small for me, especially in length.

    Doesn't Thurston do a blue leather Trucker style jacket, only with snaps. We got to get Aero to do one with buttons.

    Yes! Terry, thank you and please let me know. It's among my all time fav jackets here. I have the worship photo saved. You wouldn't have to ship internationally if it's a bother - I have a friend in the States who often goes back and forth and can bring it to me. :D

    They do 'em both with snaps and buttons, depends what you prefer. :)

    Ok, you just made it a lot easier to let go of.

    No, it won't fit you. Not sure if it will fit Monitor, but we can figure that out.
    Here it is with another LW trucker that was too big. The jacket with the collar was a 46.

    I live a lot closer if it fits me:)
