    Hi,

    I am probably slightly testing the water on this one...

    I have a half belt deluxe that I don't wear that much but I do really like that may be moved on. It's badged as a 38, I am probably closer to a 40 chest but it fits fine as a trim jacket. The leather is amazing, it is really quite heavy, but as a result the grain in it is great, and if worn a lot could be amazing. The lining is alpaca, I'm not a fan of alpaca linings as I find them a bit prickly but others have no issue. I do feel the lining if I wear this with a t-shirt or cotton shirt; if worn with a sweatshirt or plaid type shirt then its fine.

    Its doesn't get worn much and since the arrival of my M422 it gets worn even less! I have a Hudson incoming so it may be time for this to go. I am not sure what price to put on this, so lets say £550.00. I'm in the UK but I can ship anywhere at buyers cost but be aware that this is a heavy jacket!

    As I said I am not 100% sure I do want to sell this, but if a decent price comes in I may!

    The measurements are:

    Pit to pit: 22 1/2 Inches
    Back (collar to base of jacket): 27 inches
    Shoulder to Shoulder (seam to seam): 18 inches
    Arms: 26 1/2 inches

    Hopefully I can get some pictures below showing the jacket and grain. I am not sure they show the depth of colour; its is really nice. There are a couple of marks on the left shoulder, just normal battle scars! I have shown those in a picture which actually is closest to showing the actual colour:

    What a beaut. Do you have pics of measurements by chance? It looks a bit long and wide for me, but it’s close.

    I still don't think any of the pictures capture the depth of the cordovan. I think it looks fantastic; my new Hudson is also cordovan when it arrives...

    Hopefully they help!

    Another bump before I have to consider the bay place... I’ll consider offers on this as I have a new jacket that will arriving at some point soon and this probably won’t be worn.

    its a really nice jacket! I have pictures of it being worn, I am not a huge fan of posting pictures of myself but happy to mail them to anyone who wants to see it worn.

    Hi Twit, would you say this is about as warm as an Aero B6? My new B6 should be here in a couple of weeks but sometimes I think I might like a warm leather more than shearling.

    They are quite different in feel, I used to have a D1 jacket which is similar to the B6. I would say for outright warmth the D1 may have been warmer but the half belt is not cold. Where the half belt wins is in its design, by comparison to the D1 it is longer in both the body and sleeve length which helped. I also find that because its longer it looks better if you layer underneath it.

    It comes down to what you prefer. Shearling jackets are much softer than the steerhide used in this jacket and that can make a difference to feel as well.

    Okay, thank you. I’m really looking forward to getting the B6. This does look like a nice jacket though so I though I would get your thoughts.

    Now my new jacket has arrived its pretty obvious that this isn't going to be worn much if at all... I need to clear some space so a price drop to £450.00 plus shipping.

    Its a beautiful jacket, I can send some fit pics if needed.

    Thanks!

    One last go on this one as it does have to move on...

    Happy to consider any offers and can ship just about anywhere at cost, I’ll need to check if any new rules apply shipping out of the UK mins you.

    This is a great jacket, its heavy but as such will certainly out last me! :)

    Thanks!

    Still here...!

    Reduced to £475 plus shipping. I will also consider offers

    I'm in the UK and I think shipping abroad is causing some headaches but I'm sure they can be overcome. :)

    Another bump for this...

    It really does need to move on so I’ll look at offers around £400.00 plus shipping. It’s a great jacket but just not being worn. I can send more photos to people as needed.

    Thanks for looking!
