Well, I swung and missed on this jacket. Too large for me. This jacket was owned by three Loungers (including me), and it deserves to find a more permanent home. Substantial black steerhide, some minor repairs near pocket and interior lining. I think this jacket is pure 50's cool, and the wear on it is part of the coolness. Zipper original and works. I paid $150 shipped CONUS, asking for the same. S2S - 19", P2P - 21.5", back - 23.5", Sleeve - 24". CONUS sale only a this time.
To help you make sure the fit is good, I am 5.9 and 143 lbs and it was one size too large on me. Here's a perfect fit on our fellow Lounger below (thanks Bfd for permission to use pic). A bit like a Mulholland, innit? ;)

This jacket is perfect.
Every time I see a true vtg piece likes that, has me wonder; When and why exactly did a chest pocket at such a easily accessible, convenient and overall, super cool angle fall out of favor and switch to that useless horizontal yawn-fest. One of those things I won't ever understand.

Yep. There's something so rakish and devil-may-care about a slanted chest pocket. Beautiful looking jacket- wish it was one size up. GLWS!

It was a 3 jacket and a pair of boots week. There was a little BINWI with this one. Great jacket at a steal but I’ve a load of others I like and don’t get to wear enough.
I get it. But man that was as good a fit and style as one could hope for. New, vintage or anywhere in between!

Bump. That is how the jacket looks on me - acceptable with a wool hoodie layering I think but really needs someone who wears a modern 42 for a perfect fit.

Hmmm. The shoulders on this jacket are definitely 19 inches wide, so that is 1.5" in difference. But the sleeves on the jacket are 24-24.5 (you need 25.5), so the wider shoulder width will help here. Pit 2 pit stretched is 23, seam to seam is 21.5. I would say that if you like your jackets pretty tight, it might be too big, like on me. If you can layer, it might be okay. I am 5.9 and 144 lbs, and can wear it with a thick hoodie, as on above pics.
