    If your crazy so am I. I just measured mine at 18 shoulders/20 pit, so I'm thinking about it too. The price will have to come way down for me.

    I have yet to see one of the early Hercules with this black label and odd horsehide tag. I will put it in the Sears MC history.

    I knew it would catch your eye. Beautiful piece of history. The black label is the earliest right? Or close to it. Incredible jacket regardless.

    I will post more details in the Sears Mc thread. Don't want to clog this thread up. A very different jacket.

    yeah, that is real nice and another that would fit perfectly. For a while I was thinking about getting an Aero Indian Ranger. If this one was closer in price, I'd easily buy that instead of a new Aero. But I think I'm good with cross zips for a while. I gave my Schott 519 a wash yesterday because it felt a little big. And I absolutely love how it transformed after a day in the sun about 30 minutes in the dryer. The shiny finish came off and grain popped x10. I got a little wave in the zipper line which I can live with and I think I know a trick or two to flatten it out. But it looks almost exactly like that Montgomery Ward posted earlier (except 1 star instead of 2)

    Go for it. 60's version that I got is still my fav jacket in my collection.
