    FS: Iconic Vintage 40s/50s Montgomery/Windward Horsehide Jacket
    (fits size 38-40)


    Offered for sale is my Vintage Windward made of brown Horsehide with black silk lining:

    Size 38-40.
    Measurements (approx.):
    pit to pit: 21.75 in / 55.245 cm
    shoulders: 18 in / 45.72 cm
    back length: 23.5 in / 59.69 cm
    waist: 18 in- 19.5 in / 45.72 cm- 48.26 cm
    sleeves: 24 in / 60.96 cm (straight line)
    25 in / 63.5 cm (along curve)

    Features the most awesome patina. I have not conditioned it, but I can if the buyer requests. It has been re-lined with black silk, and it feels great! There are a couple of vintage repairs (see photos) which just add to the rugged coolness. Snaps are present if you want to add a fuzzy collar. Crown main zipper, shoulder gussets, and gathered waistband sides make this a classic sit-on-the-hips jacket.

    I feel this jacket would best fit someone 5’10 or a bit shorter, but tastes vary.

    Here is a gallery with lots of photos and pictures with the tape measure:

    Please ask any questions by PM or "Start a conversation". Title it Windward.

    SOLD

    I'm happy to send it internationally at cost.
    Venmo or Paypal accepted as "Gift."

    Thanks for looking!

    I got it for a fair price, so I figured I’d pass it forward.

    I’ll keep an eye for you. I’ve done this successfully for other members in the past.

    I got to keep one finger on the send button and another on my wallet. I believe we both are in the "38-40 club" on TFL and that club is as bloodthirsty as the "44-46 club", lol...:)

    @dudewuttheheck your first foray should have been that Sportclad “d” pocket/MC jacket out of Canada that sold about a week ago. You love Shinki, you will love that hide. You appreciate great stitching and well-thought out details. Check, and check. Good luck. If you pick the right one first, you will be hooked.
