    Still for sale and looking for a home is this simply amazing jacket made by Dave. the leather really is amazing, please see the link below for the original listing.

    viewtopic.php?f=19&t=17730

    The jacket in question is the J-21 with chrome tanned, and veg retan horsehide. It includes an original Prentice main zip, original Talon chain zips for all of the pockets, including the left side map pocket.

    This is one of the earlier, 1948 styles that Buco did.

    Construction is standard for the period, including tex 16 black thread and ligne 24 nickel snaps throughout.

    The lining is a 22 oz all wool buffalo plaid in black and red as per originals.

    Separate belt is a veg tanned cowhide in 9 oz weight, with a solid brass buckle plated in nickel.

    These photographs were taken today, the jacket is brand new and need to be worn, some of the best leather I have ever seen. Any questions please ask.

    Shame this one is still waiting. If I had the cash, and wanted a Buco D-pocket, this is pretty much it. No vtg original can touch this.

    Hopefully soon, a guy tried it on the other day. Fit him perfectly he loved it and said, he like really likes the Mccoys offering, but this was out of reach, when I said £800 his mouth dropped. Thought he was going to jump at it there an then.

    It's quite small for a 44, isn't it?

    Chest and waist sounds about right.

    But the sleeves and body are quite short. But probably that's normal as well on this model.

    It is, but if you look at the measurements go by them. Vintage 44, 40-42.

    I can't emphasise enough what an amazing jacket this is. Trumps Mccoys my a country mile.

    Yeah I know, the jacket is close to fitting. Sleeve & body length are perfect, underarm & waist are slightly too big. Shoulder is much too small.

    It's not mine, selling for a friend who is very very particular, and just doesn't fit him like he wished. F he jacket fit me I would not sell, though this style not to my taste
