Catch and release after a great buying experience with fast shipping from one of the regulars.
I just can’t quite fill out the shoulders, plus not quite comfy in black leather, though I wanted to give it a try!

Very thick Horsehide with unknown years of natural wear, teacore showing through beautifully. Stands up on its own with little to no “positioning”. Roomy at the bicep/elbow.

Light oxidation at working zipper and a couple spots of deeper wear. Brand-new scratches on rear right shoulder from a neighborhood cat that interrupted my photo shoot. Listen we both kinda freaked out. I tried to push him off, he latched on (see photo).

Leather has a waxy feel, it appears to have been previously treated/coated. A mild smell up close from treatment that isn’t objectionable. Measurements per previous owner in pics.

If there is interest, I’ll add measurements at waist with halfbelt cinched and relaxed. IMG_6392.jpeg

$625 shipped CONUS only. Zelle/Venmo.

Weekend bump with some fit pics.

A little more detail on front zipper, it takes some extra seconds to engage, partly due to surface oxidation and partly the thick somewhat unyielding leather that surrounds it.

Wish I knew the age of this jacket. Maybe vintage-ish territory? I’m starting to like it, but sigh. Collection needs trimming.
