Interest check on this one. I got to keep purging jackets for sanity sake. Can't keep stuff just because or for that one day or one outfit or one vacation trip or whatever LOL.

It's an older model and definitely had some good and long wears by previous owner. Leather is gorgeous, intact, beautiful grain, and no issues. Shearling is the shorter curly kind. Definitely has some wear and tear on the shearling, nothing compromising, but some flatter spots, etc. Overall rating, I'd say 8/10.

I have an Aero B3 and Toys McCoy B3 and if those are 10 on warmth scale 1-10, this D3 is like a 4 or 5. It's pretty light weight, easy to wear. No spontaneous combustion or hot sweats doing yard work :)

Biggest issues are the shearling on the overturned cuffs are pretty worn down, and he messed with them somehow, can't figure out quite how. It looks like he undid the taper of the sleeve because I can see some stitch holes. TBH, unless you're really looking for it, you won't notice. But at some point, it might be worth having Deena add new fuzzy cuffs to clean it all up. Would also help extend the sleeve length too as this is one from Aero direct, and I think they go military spec on the length vs. the longer fashion style or even the ones Thurston Bros puts out. The previous owner also tried to move the throat latch, probably a DIY kind of job. Definitely some shoddy work, but thankfully it's all on the underside of the collar, so unless you plan on rocking the collar all the way up, no one will notice.

I'll post some pics of the problem areas next couple of days or via DM if anyone interested later on. And I'll put some measurement pics up too without all the IG filters on it. Was trying to do this quick and easy to see if any bites, so just copy and pasting from previous posts. For reference, I'm 6'0 185 lbs, 41 chest if that helps in the short term.

Like I said, really nice jacket, got some mileage on it no doubt, but lots of life though and looks killer. I overpaid for it on Ebay and seller gave me some credit back when I pointed out some of the issues. So I'm reflecting in price below. Think this is a great entry level shearling for someone who wants to do a test run or maybe just have a beater to keep in the back of truck or do yard work in, etc. Anyway, trying to set expectations as I respect the members on these forums. Or maybe after my Toys McCoy B3, nothing can ever compare LOL.

Bunch more photos, but not sure how long this will last. I've gotten a handful of messages about it. In the interest of time, going to post all the photos here, but obviously I'll respect the order in which I received the messages.

First off some killer grain shots:

Measurements. Sleeves as noted are on the shorter side, to military spec so sleeves don't get caught while working. The shoulders droop over (you can see in my fit pics) to compensate some. They hit me just about the wrist bone, maybe slightly below. It's not going to be motorcycle style riding length, that's for sure. But that's not what it's made for.

Trouble spots. The throat latch was moved and you can see stitch holes from previous spot. Can't see with collar folded over, only if popping up collar and latching close, and even then, it's pretty faint.

Sleeves were opened up some how. You can see a v shape pattern of where the sleeves were tappered. Again, tiny stitch holes, you really need to look.

The plastic tape that reinforces the bottom of the zipper fell off on one side. There's some residue or maybe some glue was added for reinforcement. No fraying and all intact.

6'0, 180-185 lbs, chest about 41. I don't know how to do shoulder and arm measurements. Usually the sweet spot for my jackets is shoulder 18-19 and sleeve length 25-26.

The shoulders on this one are over 20, so that droop offsets the sleeve length some. Here's some shots of where they hit me. Just at or slightly below the wrist bone

One and only price bump and then it's going back into my rotation. Actually been wearing it the past couple days and I'm finding it pretty practical for various use.
