Alexander Leathers Detroit Halfbelt Jacket in Size 46 in very good condition. I am the second owner of this jacket and the sleeves and body are slightly too short for me so I'd like to sell this jacket on to someone who will wear it. It is made of a dark seal-brown vegetable tanned-goatskin and has a nice crisp feel to it. I'd like to sell this jacket for $550 shipped/insured in the continental US if you use Paypal friends and family from a bank account or Venmo. $600 if you'd like to use Paypal with a card. I'll charge actual shipping rates for international buyers. This offer is available through November 29th since I'm also selling on ebay - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Alexander-Leathers-Detroit-Jacket-in-Size-46-Aero-Bootlegger/282747386400.

Alexander Leathers is now known and Simmons Bilt Clothing and you can refer to the description of this jacket at, http://www.simmonsbilt.com/detroit.html, for additional information. This is virtually identical to the Aero Leathers Bootlegger if you are more familiar with Aero’s line of jackets. It was made by Vicki for those who are interested in who made their jacket.

This is an excellent asymmetric zip half-belt lined with brown cotton drill. The sleeves have an American cuff with no storm cuff. The main zipper is a Talon. The handwarmer pockets are lined in a brown cotton moleskin.



The measurements for this jacket are:
  • Pit-to-pit – 25.25”
  • Sleeve – 25”
  • Shoulder – 20”
  • Back Length – 24”
  • Front Length – 20.5”

The jacket measurements are described here for comparison to a jacket that fits you well. Pit-to-pit is measured with the jacket laying flat across the chest from lower arm seam to the opposite arm seam. Sleeve is measured along the “outside” of the arm from the top of the shoulder seam to the cuff and is not a straight-line measurement. The shoulder measurement is straight across the shoulders from shoulder/sleeve seam to the opposite seam. The back length is measured from the collar seam to the hem straight down the middle of the back and doesn’t include the height of the collar. The front length is measured from the middle of the neck to the hem straight down the front of the jacket (essentially down the zipper line on a straight-zip jacket). Please confirm this jacket will fit you. I’ve included a diagram of these measurements in the pictures.
