    Hello friends,

    I got this jacket for my self but is big on me. The jacket is in ALMOST NEW condition. 3 times briefly used only. The price is $950.00 Delivered insured to the Continental US. I will send to any other place at your own expense. I am located in L.A. County and can meet half ways for you to try on. I will include a free NOS Talon #5 or Conmatic #5 for your other projects.
    Please view the images to see the measurements. Please make your own conclusions about the exact measurements. I will answer questions or retake any images you need.
    The jacket comes with period correct Talon NOS #5 main zip and Half moon close end #3. IMG_E4724.JPG
    The color of the jacket is brown. Some images look a little dark due to bad lighting.

    Just missed that Kensington, now a GW cafe racer shows up. Italian or Shinki? What did JC spec the numbers at?
    Hard tape is hard to read. Looks like:

    P to P 23 1/2 or 24?
    Shoulders 20
    Sleeves 26 straight, maybe 27 around the curve?
    Back 25 1/2

    A boy can never have to many GWs, and I don't have one of his Cafe Racers yet.

    Truly, I am not sure if is shinki or Italian. I do not know what you mean: "JC spec the number at?" The thickness of the leather is consistent with other GW jackets I have.

    I am only trying to clarify the measurements. I had difficulty making out the numbers from your photos, and many consider using a cloth tape to offer a more accurate measurement. I asked where you got the jacket because If you bought it from John Chapman, yes who does live in Washington State, he might be able to shed more light on the exact measurements and what hide he used, since you said that it is almost new maybe more information could be had.

    I love these jackets. It is shame the jacket is big on me. This is a nice one with all 50s zips. This jacket would go great for a taller person!
