    For sale is a Very nice, just broken in Cordovan FQHH Aero Bootlegger with brown Corduroy body lining. Has Olive cotton drill in the sleeves. Olive Stitching, custom Throat latch, brass #5 Talon zippers, Western V yoke on the back. This is a wonderful example of the Bootlegger.

    Tagged a 40 it fits much closer to a "42 Long" and with the corduroy lining it's a bit snug on me presently, especially in the shoulders, hence the decision to sell this jacket on. There are 3 small fingernail scrapes on the upper back, note photos for details. Also I would like to point out that first owner of this jacket and I both agreed that while he order this jacket in Horween Steerhide, and it is tagged as such, this leather looks, feels, smells and has broken in more like Front quarter horse hide. So sort of a "Stores" jacket in reverse. Regardless, it's a marvelous, 6.5lb jacket that will serve it's next owner well!

    Asking $675 Shipped in CONUS! Jacket was brand new Last Summer! Will ship outside the US for actual shipping cost added. Pay Pal only.

    Dimensions:
    Pit to Pit - 23"
    Waist (Adjustable) 21"
    Torso *from bottom of collar to hem* 23"
    Sleeve Straight - 25.75"
    Sleeve Around - 27"
    Back - 27"

    A quick note on these photos, Cordovan really messes with camera settings, at least for me. So I have tired to show it in various angles and light intensities. Hope it's representative, this jacket has more red than true brown tones.

    ^^ This photo shows it about as dark as I could get.

    It does? I think the intent on this one is for warmth and durability of the liner.

    Adding a few "different" fit photos as per a FL member's request.

    Also at this time interested only in a direct sale, no trades. Thanks!

    Sadly, it's just a bit too snug for me. I have fought & fought this jacket (figuratively) in my mind. It's lined with Corduroy, which I think is making the difference for me. It is set up to be a cold-weather jacket. Also there are storm cuffs in the sleeves. If it were lined in Cotton Drill it would be perfect (less room take up by the lining.) As it is, with a mid-weight Long sleeve shirt on, its' just too tight.

    $675 Shipped in CONUS! International shipping at actual cost

    For reference I was measured tonight while looking at suits. I have at 43.5" chest (taken around the upper torso under the arms) and a 17.5" neck. 35" sleeves (that's from the collar of the shirt). This is an awesome jacket but it's not getting enough use these days.
