Up for sale is a Lost Worlds Buco J23 leather jacket Size 40, made of its signature 4/4.5+ Oz black horsehide. The jacket is HEAVY, weighs over 7 lbs and built like a tank. The leather is thick and with a lot of beautiful grains.

The lining is fully intact, the main zipper is in very good shape and works properly, as well as the other zippers, except for the one on the D-pocket --
Please note that while the D-pocket zipper can still zip all the way up and down, it takes some extra attention, especially when zipping downwards. There's one teeth on the tape that can go slightly misaligned, and may need some manual adjustments.

Approximate measurements:
Pit to pit: 21.75''
Shoulder to shoulder: 18'' without action back, 19'' including action back
Back length (base of collar to the bottom): 24.75''
Sleeve length: 24.5'' ~ 24.75'' depending on the ending point

The jacket is from a smoke free, pet free home.

Asking for $1000 Paypal F&F shipped CONUS.

Feel free to ask questions, thanks for your time.

You have a very nice jacket for sale. The dimensions posted are appear to be closer to a size 44 than a 40? I am interested.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm not sure how close it is to a standard size 44, but I do feel that it's roomier than some of size 40 jackets that I've had.

Below I attached some pictures demonstrating how I take the measurements (the numbers are approximate).

Pit to pit fully expanded: 21.75''

Back: 24.75''

Excuse me for updating some of the measurements. With the thick leather and quilted lining, it's extremely hard to capture some of the measurements, especially the pit to pit ---- I've been trying my best to fully expand it without overdoing it by pulling too hard.

Although the numbers may seem to be on the larger side for a size 40, taking the leather thickness and quilted lining into account, the jacket might not be as big as the numbers suggests.

To make an educated guess, I think it works best as a size 40, or a size 42. But again, just my guess.

I agree with you. The jacket looks solid.

This is a great jacket at an even better price.

The measurements are exactly what I'd expect from a LW 40.

I'd recommend propping up to eBay at 1500. Worth more than 1k.
I agree. A tremendous LW jacket with grain. I don't understand how a Foolholland can command $2K and this barely $1000. Hold your price if you can, ignore lowballers.

^ Agreed.

No jacket on TFL or otherwise has business commanding a dime over $500 before this cat goes away...
