You want to skip Greg´s queue?

This jacket is perfect, perfect, perfect - for a guy slightly shorter than myself.

I am posting this with a heavy heart. It´s just that critical one inch too short for me (despite what all you guys have assured me of; I just don´t wear it any more). The quest for the perfect CR continues; I was almost there.

- Black Shinki with a substantial hand
- Blue lining, blue stitching
- No. 8 main zipper (if you know, you know)
- two vertical inside pockets with stud-closing

Measurements (pls. see pictures):
- P2P: 23,5"
- Shoulder: 19"
- Sleeves: 26,4" (24" straight down)
- Lenghts: 25,2"
- Hem: 21,3"

Asking EUR 900 plus shipping.

so nice. I remember we got ours back to back. I made the same mistake for my preference. I should have included another 1 inch on the front drop. I think cafe racers look better longer. It's not game changer, but I do find myself tugging down through out the day when I wear. But I do usually wear low rise, so who knows. GLWS. This is a great jacket to pick up at this price.

Ughhh, so tempting. The P2P seems a little big for me but it's otherwise close to perfect. Re-measuring my other jackets.

I know! Can’t believe I am passing this on. I was debating this with myself for more than a year now. The hide is so nice. Perfect balance between a substantial heft and everyday wearability.

Angry at myself for specifying the wrong length. Absolutely zero fault of Greg’s!

Kaff Racers are tough to crack. They do look so simple, but it’s actually pretty hard to get everything just right.

Still for sale, and a good chance to beat Greg´s queue.

Will lower the price soon, but will give right of first refusal to those who already made offers. Just saying, in case you´re on the fence...

What's that in Australian dollars I wonder.....
No harm in dreaming...
TFL-friends from abroad are always entitled to a favourite rate of exchange (other than USD, who is giving a good whipping to the EUR as of lately...).
