    I'm surprised to hear this as well. :) Considering our jackets seem to be from around the same era, I wonder why's there such discrepancy in the sizing. @Marc mndt can confirm this regarding the jacket that I have, as he was its previous owner and wearing a size 42 in jackets - if I remember this correctly - found it a bit too roomy.

    I have a 43' chest. Left is a HD Sportster unknown size, right the Schott size 44. Both have a ptp of 22.

    The Schott is roomier in the waist and has more front drop. It also features gussets unlike the HD.

    Even though ptp is the same, the Schott feels much roomier.

    I need to measure my Sportster but it’s tagged 44. I bet the P2P is larger than 22”.

    I have/had one for sale too. I think I'm going to keep it because getting less than $200 for it seems silly and would rather keep it for the apocalypse in case I need to stop bullets LOL. But if someone really really wants it, let me know. Gosh knows I need to start clearing out the closet. Mine is a size 42 if i remember and fits about that, maybe a little bit smaller. I've got the laces fully cinched but the chest and shoulders feel perfect.

    Saw this jacket on Ebay couple weeks ago and it's sold now. It was listed as a Tenjin Works Horsehide Leather Jacket but label was removed by previous owner. Does anyone know if Tenjin made jacket with this design?

    Looks suspect to me, looks like low arm holes and the use of recycled leather for backing is probably Is not something I would expect from a Japanese maker

    This is so clean. Too bad about the belt being cut off but it still looks cool without it. Is fountain head in the same regard as FW or RMC?

    I have no idea, but from the pics I've seen they look to be extremely high quality. I think they're a brand new company. The IG accounts that I follow associated a lot with Fine Creek have been posting these jackets. That's how I found out about them. I've seen that Leathertogs inspired design and a Hercules inspired design.

    That is a lovely looking jacket, the leather is super grainy and has loads of character.

    I’ve been on the hunt for a brown cafe in the 44-46 range, that Schott might be worth a shot if it can be grabbed reasonably

    Yes, very shinki-esque.
