    I found a way to make this jacket mine. Another Hat Tip to @JMax for posting this Jewel. I had not seen this jacket. Measures out to at least a 44, the seller said no unseen issues with the leather.

    Sorta stunned again to find another for the closet.

    I own this jacket with 2 chest pocket, Roll up buttoned cuffs, Olympic Ring zipper pulls. It also has a Sears Topline label from 1941. Most probably made by California Sportswear Company. It has no leather tag and the leather I have described as most unique. I finally determined it was Calf Skin through another jacket. Now this one, looking identical has a Goatskin label!

    This will be an education. I often refer to mine as one of the finest jackets I own. This one looks to be around the same size 44/46. Very comfortable.

    I was hoping you or someone here snagged it. Truth be told, when I got the offer from the seller I almost went for it too. And it isn’t remotely close to the style and leather that I prefer. It just looks really nice, well put together.

    Schott Factory Sale in dirty Jersey on Saturday, 10/16, 10-4. One of those things I've always been on the fence about, apparently there are good deals to be had, but it sounds like a bit of a nightmare with resellers, etc. Anyone from here go?
