    1960s Cal Leather horsehide jacket

    Beautiful heavyweight and supple black horsehide. The main zip is a Talon, sleeve zips are Serval. Fur lining on the inner cuffs. Heavyweight canvas pockets. Shoulder gussets at the back. The zips work great -- one tooth is slightly misaligned on the right sleeve zip. The zipper still functions, you just have to take a little care when zipping. No leather cracking, no lining tears.

    The inner pocket has a handwritten "40 L". See the measurements below for best fit.

    Measurements:
    Chest: 21"
    Sleeve: 25.5" along the curve
    Shoulders: 19"
    Back length from BOC: 23.5"
    Waist: 18"

    Price: $350 including CONUS shipping.

    I've received some questions about the measurements. Posting pics here showing them.

    I'm happy to answer any other questions.

    If you ever wanted a Cal and this is close to fitting, it's a no brainer. Having handled many of them and seen 10x for sale, this one looks top notch. Less and less are coming up for sale that have original zippers, no liner damage, etc. etc. Out of the 50+ jackets I've handled, there is nothing like a Cal. I've tried 3 or 4 other CHP brands and it's not even close.
