    I’m regretfully offering up my like new PHWM. I knew that I should be a size 40 in this cut based on everything I’d read on here, but I went for this as a fit jacket from TB, as this is my preferred Board Racer size. This jacket is so gorgeous, I simply couldn’t send it back, and thought maybe it would relax enough to be comfy. Well... here it is on TFL. It’s just too snug in the chest and shoulders for me to want to spend any time in it. This is the 4th Vicenza jacket I’ve had, and this particular batch is the stiffest of the bunch. It also has the most sheen. I bought this from the Thurston stock page in January this year. It can still be seen on page 2 on their site. Only been worn outside the house a handful of times, and it’s in excellent shape. Other than creasing in the sleeves, which happened very quickly, the jacket is barely distinguishable from when it was new. I paid $1279. Ouch. I’m asking $850 PP f&f shipped conus with the courier of buyers choice. I’m new to selling here, but I’m sure @ton312 will vouch for me.
    Measurements are:
    P to p: 21”
    Shoulder: 17”
    Sleeves: 25”
    Length: 24.75” 8D68D782-45B5-45A7-8202-37F8EF1AE76F.jpeg CDFE693B-5844-4559-BC8F-C1CB8D23419D.jpeg 29E57829-6C6E-435C-AB9B-339ED457110E.jpeg 18517E3F-0CED-4A68-ABA4-EBCD68845D85.jpeg

    Beautiful jacket and I can absolutely say the seller is an absolute pro. Great comms, exceptionally fair pricing and light speed shipping. Would buy from again without hesitation.

    I’m also wondering why this PHWM looks so much better than the one I meticulously spec’d a couple years ago. Makes me want to go back for another.

    Thanks Ton, I appreciate it! I love this thing, but it fits me more like a shirt than a jacket, and I have the Board racers for that.. I may end up spec’ing a size 40, after trying out a standard HWM for a proper layering jacket in colder months.

    Beautiful jacket! Unfortunately own this same exact pattern / leather combination. New here as well, lurking for small s2s 38's...Let me know if you've talked yourself into any other 17" shoulder jackets.

    It's a fair price - GLWS!

    Are you in the US or Europe? That's a beautiful jacket! Have you got any fit pictures and what are your measurements if I may?

    Not sure if this would be helpful...but as I have the same jacket and am a bit smaller (granted there are tolerances in Aero's measurements - so the same jacket is relative) I'ld be willing to pass a long pictures. 5'9", 160, 38.5" chest - 29 x 32 jeans.

    Feels a bit weird to post this - but happy to help with a sale

    Thank you for willing to help, I'm 5'9" and chest about the same. Aero recommended me I would get a Premier hwm if I want a slimmer version. As I don't want to keep adding to this post without buying, maybe you could send me those fit pictures in a private message, I'm curious how it fits you too.

    So...wearing it gives you the ability to walk on walls? Is that due to the horsehide?

    This fits perfectly! Too bad you have to move this on. My size 36 has a 20.5" chest so this would have fit me great if not for the longer length and sleeves.

    its all good until I have to reach to put a hat or a mask on.. I’ve got no range of motion with this one zipped up. My 36 BR has the same chest/shoulder measurements, but I can move more freely in it. It is Badalassi though and has some more give. It’s a shame because the hide on this is no nice. Looks like different leather next to my other BB Vic jacket.

    ^^ I meant “so nice”, not “no nice”.

    I feel the same but I have cxl so that may be contributing to how restrictive the jacket feel at times. I do daily simple arm motions with the jacket unzipped at first like putting arms forward/backward/side to side/arm rotations, I did that for a week. Then after it loosened up a bit, I do over the head movements like reaching upward and clapping hands over heads( I did that with the jacket unzipped for a week).

    Now I can do all those movements with the jacket zipped up and it feels it's getting easier to do them. It still feels restrictive but I think it's because there's still plenty to break in for this hide (it's the thickest cxl I've ever handled and should be atleast 4oz if not thicker).

    So basically I'm just trying my best to get you thinking into keeping the jacket. Forgive me. This is the best fitting premier HWM I've ever seen.

    I agree with Jin, fit looks great.

    Doesn't looks like it's pulling or bunching anywhere. Pockets are laying flat, sleeve length is perfect.

    Alright! Whoever got it is a winner! Too bad it didn't work out for you but I'm glad you were able to move it on quickly. Can't wait to see what's up next
