    Up for sale is an as new Aero tobacco badalassi Seven with a Highwayman collar, V yoke, two horizontal chest pockets, two handwarmer pockets, left inside pocket, OD stitching and lined with a lightweight Lochcarron MacFarlane hunting ancient tartan.

    I am a tall guy (6’5’’) and placed an order for this jacket with Thurston Bros in October 2020 and received it in May. My aim was to buy one jacket and one jacket only, happy to spend years breaking it in and enjoying it…

    In January (prior to the jacket arriving) I injured my back which resulted in a need for some fairly swift surgery. All went well; I’ve recovered but the outworking has been that I now don’t find comfortable wearing anything mildly heavy - a backpack, a heavy coat and regrettably this jacket.

    The jacket is in as new condition. It has only been lightly worn, mostly inside – out of sheer determination to see if I could make it work. The only slightest thing of note is that the main talon zipper is still a little stiff, but I would say that is because it is still new and hasn’t yet had proper use.

    There are the beginnings of some creases here and there, the lining is perfect and the smell of the badalassi is fantastic.

    ‘Regretted sale’ is likely an overused term, but I'm definitely feeling this one.

    Measurements:

    Tag size: 44
    Armpit to armpit: 58cm / 23"
    Shoulder width: 47 cm / 18.5"
    Hem: 51 cm / 20"
    Sleeve length (in a curve from shoulder to end of sleeve) 69.8cm/27.5’’
    Back length (without collar): 70.1cm / 27 6/8’’

    Looking for USD850. PayPal, Friends/Family. Shipping is from Australia, which is unfortunately not inexpensive for those of you used to more reasonable US and European rates. You all well know the cost of a custom Thurston Bros jacket, in particular in badalassi, so I feel that USD850 is very fair noting that international postage from Australia will make the final amount higher.

    Any questions please just ask. Thanks!

    Bump. This jacket is too nice to be hanging unused :)

    Finally, a jacket that is on target from a sizing standpoint and then the shoulder is a good inch too narrow and I'm in Europe. Such a bad luck.
    I'm 6.5 too ;-)

    Good luck for sale
