    The double PJ-27 pockets + the solo centered back belt loop + the "Diesel co" arm patch, it's all a bit much...

    I'm just saying, I was really surprised by how quality these are. I didn't expect it to be such a heavy, well made jacket.

    Appalachian is actually Taylor’s (before they became Taylor’s). They are extremely nice. Somebody made out on that one.

    For get band, Taubers was an iconic jacket maker down by Mission San Francisco. If this jacket is your size I suggest you contact the seller about buying. There might be room in the price, although it is priced right in IMO. Taubers Jackets are rarer than Cal Leather and more valuable as collector jacket and the early Taubers have a better overall design

    Not leather, but if anyone's into the Dispatch Rider style, here's a possibly-original-NOS WWII UK Army Dispatch Rider coat. If the sizing system is the same as the old UK Civil Defense wool greatcoats, then the "8" stencil would indicate this is sized for a man with a 40-43" chest [102-109cm] who is 5'8" to 5'10" in height [173-178cm].

    Somebody better jump in and BIN it. Horsehide, too. I am not into cross-zips or else I would BIN it.
