    I bought this from a fellow Lounger about 3 years ago. It has been a great jacket for casual wear but now it's time to pass it on. The Horsehide is probably around 4.5 oz and is the Aero Tumbled CXL Horsehide. This jacket shows a lot of grain so if it's patina you want then this jacket meets the requirements. The jacket is heavy weighing in around 8 lbs. The sleeves are slightly narrower than the standard because it was manufactured without the wool inserts at the bottom of the sleeves which I really like. It is not tight in the armpits just a very slight adjustment. The lining is the heavy duty Cotton that Aero commonly uses. The measurements are as follows:
    Armpit to armpit: 24.5"
    Bottom Waist: 21"
    Shoulder to sleeve: 24.5"
    Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5"
    Back of collar to Bottom of jacket: 26"
    See Photos with tape for more info.
    Note: This jacket is for a person of average height. My weight and height is 5' 9" and 190lbs. in photo.
    Asking $700.00 ship free and insured in the Continental U.S. only. International shipping is possible with additional cost but be aware it will only ship as fully insured so this could have a major cost for VAT Tax.

    What a swell jacket. It is exactly the kind I am looking for, this is the first Bootlegger I have seen for sale in months. But it is slightly too small through the shoulders and sleeves I think.

    Any chance I could trade you either of the Cafe Racers I am selling to see if it works for me?

    Really not looking for trades. I would add if the measurements seem small it probably is.

    I don't think it is Storse. I have owned several tumbled horsehide jackets from Aero and this is indicative of those jackets, just a bit heavier.
