    Is 250 Canadian dolleros a solid price for a mid 1950s four pocket custom Thurlowe?

    That's a great deal bro. That's normally £800++ with the upcharge on the leather plus shipping. It's probably not the neatest stitching like what the description says but for the pattern and price I think it might be a great buy

    Assuming very good condition, I would say yes.

    Edit: You buying or selling?

    Well, I am considering the buy. Came up in a local curated vintage shop.

    It has a nice two-way Conmar zip for the main event and four lovely Conmar diamond zipes on the exterior pockets, also it has kind of a sunburst half-belt at the back. No adjustment tabs though. It's in as good a condition as you can find a jacket that hasn't been subject to preservation or the dumb luck of an optimal storage situation.

    My size, 38.

    Trouble is I just fully designed and commissioned my own leather jacket and had the prototype shipped to me this very day, so it is hard to justify throwing another 250 into the wind!

    If the deerskin is your thing and the jacket fits well, US$200 is a good price imo. I had a Thurlow MC jacket and paid US$225.

    250 CAD is about 220 USD right now give or take, maybe closer to 200 as you say.
    Maybe I can rustle up the funds through sales, I do have an absolute excess of pieces I am not wearing.

    I'm also curious how they look as I've ordered a CR from the trainee section. I'll find out today :)

    Someone needs to. On general principle. This is a highlight of any collection.

    It’s been for sale on both Etsy and Ebay for quite some time. Perhaps an offer is in order? Too small for me.

    I'm thinking of buying it myself even though it doesn't fit. Problem is, I'm running out of space here.

    The Beck is a really nice jacket. But the one I would absolutely recommend is the Sportclad on eBay that has been sitting at around $500 for months. You will not regret it. It may fit too.
