Because this model is hard to find in my size, I pulled the trigger in a hurry when I found this one, without realizing the seller had given around the curve measurements for the sleeves, which makes a big difference and can be misleading. Anyway, I'm selling it because it is overall too short, not only in the sleeves. I'd say it's a 36-38.
The leather is in excellent condition, amazingly thick and pliable, with some minor scuffs and scratches, mostly on the sleeves.
Lining is intact, as are the pockets.
Serval main zip, talon pocket zips. Snap cuffs. Everything works fine.

Measurements:

Pit to pit: 21"
Shoulder to shoulder: 18"
Back length: 22.5"
Sleeves: left one is a little under 23" and the right one a little over 22" (!)

Asking for what it cost me : 300 € PP F&F, plus shipping from France.

That's a real nice one. Looks just like mine. If you're a smaller size, and on the shorter side, this is a good deal.

How is measuring the sleeve on the curve misleading?

If you don't know the measuring method, it can be misleading. Around-the-curve will add about 2-3" to the length as opposed to a straight measurement. It's always best to ask for pictures showing the tape so you can see how it was done, and judge whether it was laying properly flat and whether there is slop or slack in the lay of the tape.

Measurement styles vary- particularly for sleeves. The term “misleading” is not entirely fair IMO. Nice jacket tho

Correction: I agree the term "misleading" is not fair. What happened in my case is I usually take it for granted the sleeves are measured straight. I don't blame the seller, I should have read more carefully.
