My size, but the price is pretty steep! You’re most of the way to an ELMC at the BIN.
True about the asking price, but ask yourself what would you rather have a pristine original or an ELMC reproduction
A pretty solid Windward HH for $170 BIN, 40:
The original always wins IMHO! I’ve tried a couple Vanson versions of this jacket (not as nice as the ELMC). I don’t think either holds a candle to the original piece. The ELMC looks too flimsy and the Vanson isn’t cut right.
Connecting the Makers with the Catalog jacket labels is an ongoing project. Some of these connection have been made going back to the 1930s. The "Made in Cali" labels need to be broken down to Who in California. Some just say "Made in the West". Who in the West?
I do have some answers to Who, What, When and Where. These makers are confirmed to have produced jackets for the Catalogs.

Kurland of Boston-J.C.Penney
I bought one from Rockabilly, must be the jacket you are referring to.
The current ebay jacket is a "1st Edition" with the light lining and the side strap adjustment. I have a later edition with the quilt lining and gathered sides. I also owned an ELMC reproduction that was the same as my original. It was a great jacket, but I kept the original. I believe mine may be a size 46.
This is quite an opportunity to own an iconic vintage jacket. This 1st edition one looks to be in excellent condition. These are no nonsense heavy Horsehide jackets.
If it were a 44 I would have a bid down. The light lining and adjustable side cinches makes this the one to own. I would guess this jacket will end up with at least one bid, Mine?
Schott 44 $300
This Schott model is rare...... it was made for individuals with Non opposing thumbs. Hence the Hoopster Madness of the zipper pulls........
Though it’s now easier to open the zips when you are running from a crocodile alongside Mick Dundee.
LMAO!!!!!!!!! This struck me hilarious..... I'm clearly a simpleton!!
Unknown reserve for this Kurland, probably medium

Not a back design I normally see on the SC/Kurlands. Very cool.
This auction just ended. I was bidding. Did any one here buy this jacket? thanks
I generally do not follow Schott but I like
Super cool back design. This will be similar to my next FL cross zip jacket with a through belt. Are those studs there for design or to help add support to the seams?
Unless I’m missing something, design. The studs on my Sears and Wards jackets are not that close to the seams, relatively speaking. Probably to keep the seams strong.
Thanks for clarifying, love the design of it. I like the look of the attached belts but only for when others are wearing it lol
They can get in the way sometimes. The nice jackets are considerate, they have a snap to attach the buckled side of the belt to the jacket in order to keep it in place when worn loose.
Adds stiffness/weight to the leather + looks really Cool!
