FS: Cafe Racer Leather Jacket, sz. 42

Got this jacket listen on eBay, didn't feel anyone here'd be interested but oddly so, number of people who say it there, reached out here thru TFL about it so I figure I'd make a FS thread as well. It's a good jacket.

$160 all in, shipped worldwide. PP/FF.

Just your standard black cafe racer leather jacket. The tag is too worn out so I can't tell the maker but they obviously knocked-off Schott 141/641 design, which isn't a bad thing at all since the jacket is of a very good quality. Think Branded/Natal/Kerr/WD/etc. grade piece.

Somewhat tougher and heavier than the original, the jacket is made from a classic 90's era, heavy naked cowhide. You've got three shell & one lining pockets to store your stuff. Warmly lined in sponge-padded quilted lining. Grommet vented underarm footballs. Double nickle plated side buckles... So on and so forth.

It is a good, comfortable, sturdy & warm motorcycle jacket.

All good with it except for the broken tip of the zipper pull tab. Zipper works perfectly plus I've made a leather strap for it so you've no worries. No issues, otherwise.

Fits like a regular, boxy-ish 42. The sleeves seem short but the shoulders are wide so they're sufficiently long - They actually have a better reach than Schott's 25" sleeves. You can see how it fits me and I need 26" sleeves. Measurements are as follows...
  • Chest width (armpit to armpit): 62 cm or 24.5"
  • Shoulders width (measured at back): 57 cm or 22.5"
  • Waist width: 53 cm or 21"
  • Sleeve length: 59 cm or 23.5"
  • Full length (w/o collar): 62 cm or 24.5"
That's that. Good everyday beater. If interested, let me know. Thanks.

This jacket is also very cool. You couldn't ask for a better beater cafe racer & it might grow on you more than the fancy jacket you're babying.
