    Not a thing wrong with it except I just don't wear it. I have had it almost 8 years and wore it less than a dozen times. If you know Lost Worlds HH, that didn't put a dent in it as far as ware goes.

    I have it in size 42 (goat) and is at least 44 inches at arm pit
    I have it in size 44 (black HH) and is more like 46+ inches at arm-pit.

    Maybe measured zipped and completely laid flat it would turn out differently.
    Lots of sellers on eBay give these loosely taken measurements to find out in the end that the jacket has couple of inches more and not fitting right.

    Try to lay it zipped and as flat as possible(keep both ends with hands to avoid making waves due to thick leather) and measure like here

    ^ that makes more sense. Can't imagine Stu selling a 48 that small.

    Last Worlds' HH is tough as nail, it's truly tangibly tough, not like horween or jerky HH. The only competition is Vanson or Langlitz 4 oz cowhide, but that's 4 oz.

    But the "competition weight" cowhide can be pretty tough too. I just received my ebay purchase today, an 80s/90s Bate's highwayman, aka, the Terminator I jacket. Amazingly it's still not broken in, I am certain it's tanned in the same way as today's Vanson, but this jacket is still stiff and thick as hell. It must felt quite tight for Arnold to wear it in the movie, considering the high arm hole, slim arms. Look at my Avatar, Arnold had 80 24 inches arms, but this promo shot looks so slim.

    Very nice seller, met for cash transaction, will buy any other stuff he has, that I like.


    p to p is actually 27 inches GREAT...(one of Stu larger ones and sleeves are longer than most stock current models 28.5, another plus for me.) The leather in this jacket measures at close to 3.75 oz leather also. Bullet proof, almost... To order and get one this size would be a plus 20% order now days.

    I am replacing all the knits (with red) and repairing both pocket snap posts (that came apart), then I will wear it until it falls apart at the seams....

    Thanks a lot

    Better that it goes to someone who can really put her to good use than hanging in a closet. Enjoy!
