    Hi Chaps,

    This lovely seal warhorse trimmed Eastman B-3 came to me early this winter. Sadly though, I think I am coming to the realisation that the size might be a bit too snug. Although I love this jacket and have worn it probably 12 or so times since I had it.

    The original owner purchased it from Eastman directly at the beginning of winter 2016-17 and said he did not wear it much. It is in great shape - showing some wear on the cuffs and slight separation at the join on the left cuff that has not gotten any worse since I have had it (pictured). A few rub marks on the horsehide. The crown zipper work perfectly.

    In a perfect world, I'd swap this for a similar condition size 46 recent (warhorse) B-3 and I would be happy to meet up in or around London to try on/exchange.

    I would also consider a size 46 Eastman RW A2 or similarly sized Goodwear A2 for trade.

    Finally, I would reluctantly consider selling it for £500 plus shipping in the UK.

    Shipping cost is probably prohibitive for overseas sale/trade.

    Beautiful! I have the same one & it’s absolutely stunning. I just wonder which contract they copied the pattern from

    Maybe keep it longer until it softens?

    Do you think it will soften and change much? That’s what I have been telling myself, but started to doubt lately.

    Oh it will. The lacquer top coating will also crack a bit (a long time to come) & the coat will hang on a hanger like an original! I had two originals & the sleeves collapse, the top coat crack, amazing.

    Eastman’s are easier to break than Aero, as the hair is stubbier than Aero
