    right? i simply lucked out.
    since being bitten by the bug I've had a bunch of really nice jackets pass through my hands but this is my first of <that> ilk.

    shoulders 18"
    p2p 21.5"
    shoulder to cuff (straight line) 24"
    bottom collar to hem 24"

    it's in stupid good shape too.

    ps .. its no where near as substantial as my 70s(?) bates cross zip, which is so fine, to me. i'm gonna start a bates thread soon ; )

    Man that jacket literally destroys everything. This is what patina looks like. That is so splendid in every way but the size, lol, I'd kill for that jacket. Do whatever it takes to make it for you. Think Bale in the machinist.

    Very handsome jacket. Just wonderful.

    And it would fit me, too. In case you decide to send it to a loving home. :)
