    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to sell my Cal-Leather horsehide motorcycle jacket for $750 + shipping. It's gorgeous, but it's a little too snug for me. I'm 6' and 185 pounds, for reference. I wish I could keep it, but many of you may understand how annoying it can be to own something you really like, but don't fit into. I've never sold anything on TFL before, but I have purchased a few things. If someone is interested and wants to feel secure about the transaction, I can always post it on ebay and send you a link. I live in California and prefer to ship it domestically. I've never shipped anything overseas. I'm open to it, but someone on the forum will have to give me advice on how to do that.

    Measurements:
    pit2pit: 23.5"
    shoulder: 18.5"
    back:23.5"
    sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26"
    sleeve (pit to cuff): 18"
    bottom hem (laces tightened all the way): 17"
    bottom hem (laces loosened all the way): 21"

    Anyway, here are some photos. Thanks!

    Btw, there's more info on how this jacket was identified to be Cal-Leather by some very friendly members on this forum: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/thr...s-vintage-leather-jacket.102170/#post-2730556

    I wouldn't rely on this. Measuring bottom hem on Cal jackets is very difficult due to laces & the fact the "gussets" won't sit still when unlaced. I wouldn't even know how to tell you the width of my jacket. It goes from P2P width to extremely tight.

    Stunning. A man's kinda leather jacket. I have one very similar without the shearling. If I could turn mine into a chair I would.

    Man I'm glad I just found this thread. That Cal would have tested my will power, I'd be tempted for the collar alone.
