I'm not that familiar with the halfbelts and maybe they need to fit the same way. It seems a bit big for my taste.

CXL is addictive...

This looks like a 50s half belt. You can go with a custom one that tapers from 44 down to 42

I'm going to be honest because opinions were asked for.

The leather might be nice but it looks and fits like a leather sack. They way leather jackets were worn back in the 90's: oversized.

Since we're playing 90's sitcom poker, I call your Seinfeld and raise you a Joey & Ross :)

@hafor123, it does look kinda big and u could've gotten away from more taper. How does it feel zipped up?
I also think the length of the jacket, especially a relaxed version of the half belt, does not do any favors.

Surprising to me because these are my measurements. Luckily I bought it off eBay I won't see any losses.

Too Big.

Also it's best to tuck in your shirt and place a little larger photos on here to see more detail.

Jacket is nice but it's cinched up as tight as it will go (see side adjusters) and that actually does not help this jacket on you. I would look for one closer to your size.

Good for you. From the measurements I would assume that you have different body measurements in mind than they actually are or the jacket has different measurements than stated. If it's a 50s HB, it's going to run big anyway. I think a 42 or even a 40 (if it's large) should work better.

I'm not sure what you mean by "won't see any losses", but if you're happy with the jacket that's all the matters.

I remember you posted some pics of a Schott. Think that was a much better fit.
Maybe you could compare it with the Aero to see how much of a difference it really is.

I think he means he could resell for the same used price vs buying a new jacket and needing to move it.
