    I'm selling or trading three heavy motorcycle jackets with fringes/ tassels. All bought second hand last year in search for the right size (found it now).

    *** NOTE - For some reason I can't upload photos at the moment. I'll add them later, and you can PM me to get them via PM or email. ***

    General notes on condition:
    No smoke smells or animal hairs were detected upon purchase nor are any present in my home.
    For visual condition please refer to the photos.
    Scents are described according to my sense of smell, which might differ from yours, but these jackets are definitely on the well cared for side of the spectrum and smell clean and pleasant to me.
    All zippers work well and all pocket linings are intact.
    Regarding measurements, I'll mention the slight irregularities many heavy leather jackets have - this doesn't mean that they're unusual but that I'm a stickler.

    1.
    Schott model 526, size 42, Dur O Jac label (European market), probably early 90s
    Fit is a bit looser on the chest and waist than Schott Perfectos, but with less of a 'beer belly' than those, more straight, slightly sports coat like.
    Measurements in cm (taken on flat jacket):
    Shoulder width 49
    Chest (pit to pit) 55
    Length (front) 62,5
    Length (back) 62,5
    Sleeve length 63,5
    Smells slightly like a well cared for closet.
    Conchos are missing. Belt is included.
    Asking € 195

    2.
    Schott model 526, size 40, Schott Sportswear label (US market)
    Measurements:
    Shoulder width 47
    Chest (pit to pit) 53,5
    Length (front) 59
    Length (back) 61
    Sleeve length 61,5 (the sleeves are quite bulky/ muscular on this one, even for Schott standards)
    Smells almost neutral.
    Belt is missing.
    Asking € 170

    3.
    First (brand name) 'Jon Bon Jovi style' jacket with leather braids.
    No size tag. Could be described as anything from a 40 to a 44 due to an unusual, late 80s style cut:
    Strong V-taper from chest to waist, wide & roomy shoulders, relatively tight upper arms compared to Schott Perfectos, high armpits - all making for the best freedom of movement I ever had in a MC jacket. This and the cool patina on the back mean I'll gladly keep it if I can't get a good price for it.
    Smells a bit 'fuller' than the others, but no less pleasantly like a well cared for closet.
    Shoulder width 49
    Chest (pit to pit) 60 (sic!)
    Length (front) 60
    Lentgh (back) 66
    Sleeve length left: 62,5, right R 61 - but visually they're the same length when worn because the shoulders are also slighty asymmetrical.
    Belt is included.
    Asking € 220

    Regarding trades, I'd be interested in a pair of Red Wing Harvester boots in size 9.5 or 9 or an eight-base specimen of American Optical's General sunglasses (also called Flight Gear II).

    Bump for photos and Easter discount for a quick turnaround: both Schott jackets temporarily down to € 150 until Easter Monday, "First" jacket down to € 170.

    My girlfriend has the jackets listed on a German classifieds site also, but we'll give Lounge members priority.

    My trade interests listed in the OP are no longer valid. I'm only interested in selling.

    Nr. 1 of 3: Schott Dur O Jac, size 42

    Wow, that is beautiful! And the price is right for those in the fringe crowd, of which, I’m almost reluctant to say, I’m not. What do I know, though—I’m currently lusting for a grizzly. GLWTS!

    N. 2 of 3: Schott N.Y.C. "Sportswear", size 40, same model as above, different label. PHOTO_20210329_180547.jpg PHOTO_20210329_180737.jpg PHOTO_20210329_180759.jpg PHOTO_20210329_180811.jpg

    Nr. 3 of 3: "First" jacket, size unknown/ ca. 40 but tapered cut so hard to put a number on it.

    This is my favourite of the lot and I'll gladly keep it if there's no interest. Most fringe jackets of this shirt-collared style have less pointy collars and thus don't look good to me. Yes, it looks battered, but that fits the Western style IMO, and the smell and the lining (except for a bit of fray at the left wrist) are excellent. I haven't found a fringe MC jacket in this cool condition in one year of searching.
