I bought it second hand but the fit just hasn’t worked out for me. Basically a t-shirt only fit with my build, I’d keep if I could comfortably wear a thicker shirt with it. Thought I had posted this here a week ago! Better late than never.

The jacket is built like a tank. The leather is a heavy batch of their flagship Chromexcel front quarter horsehide tanned by Horween. It’s thick, shiny, and has excellent graining, patina, and teacore showing. The body lining is wool tweed, sleeves feel like smooth heavy cotton. There are knit storm cuffs. Talon main zip. One zipped chest pocket and two non-zip hand warmer pockets.

Overall the jacket is in excellent condition. Zips all function properly, mild piling if any on the lining and storm cuffs.

Please refer to the pictures for measurements. It fits much like a modern 40. As you know Aero size tags can be deceptive. My approximate readings:

Chest: 22”
Shoulder: 18”
Sleeve: 24.5”
Back: 24.5”

Asking $400 shipped USA.

I’m not very familiar with pricing for international shipping but may consider it for TFL.

Omg if this were just a wee bit larger id tell you it looked horrible while furiously hitting my PayPal account and hurling the funds your way…but dude…this is the best fit and overall jacket (ok minus the OG Herc) I’ve seen on you! You sure!??? Take it from me…sometimes it’s just not the right move.

Alright y’all I’m going to wear it through the day today and mull it over.
One thing I can say with all honesty is that I've learned this lesson the hard way..... I have gotten rid of quite a few jackets that I regret letting go because I thought " the grass could be greener on the other side". Here's 2 I wish I still had. I sold to help pay for other jackets. To me these were gems. They won't EVER come back.

I concur with the comments above and congrats on taking your time. The leather on this jacket will relax and fit you better after each wear.

Alright fellow loungers.

The jacket is back up for sale.

I’ve worn the jacket quite a bit in recent weeks. There’s a lot to like but the heavy hide is not working for me with this pattern.

To forestall the “keep it!” comments, I have a particular issue with my right shoulder which is aggravated when I wear the jacket.

I’ve reached out to previously interested parties and they’ve all passed or failed to reply, so the jacket is available with no caveats.

The jacket does in fact look great on you, but you have others that look just as good, so you have my blessing, haha. GLWS, someone is gonna end up with a magnificent beast of a jacket! I sooo wanted this one to work for me, but I had fitment issues as well.
