    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? ;)

    Here are more pics from the latest Classifieds ad by @Joshua Holland. Hope it is okay to re-use them, if not let me know and I will take them down.

    Time for @Bfd70 to rectify the huge mistake of selling this in the first place....

    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!

    Yep, this jacket fits like a modern 40, you need a 42 and I need a 38, lol. Hopefully it fits someone here because it is a great jacket.

    Someone asked to clarify - the jacket is black. Also, only CONUS shipping at this time.

    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.
