    For sale Real Mccoy Japan BUCO J24
    more info on the jacket here:
    https://www.realmccoyslondon.com/eu/buco-j-24-horsehide-leather-jacket-black.html

    It's always been considered one of the best jackets on the market, i bought this one few years ago, and its been my favorite jacket.
    Always kept it on a big wooden hanger.

    Condition:
    • "as it is", as it's a teacore shinki (brown undertone) horsehide, so obviously there is a lot of small scratches and patina on the leather,
    • No major issues, no holes, no rot, no deep scratches etc, no bad smells,
    • Few small holes on the sleeve lining (you probably will never see them) body lining is a bit scratched above the belt area on the side (shown on picture below)
    • Leather at the end of the sleeves is scratched (but nothing major, pic below)
    • Some stitching/ seams is a little damaged by wearing (around d-pocked zip, at the top of small pocket, around one sleeve zip, pics below)
    • All hardware is working properly, never had a single issue.
    • Sleeves are modified by skilled craftsmen (added cowhide leather lining at the end of sleeves for durability) - $150 for work (pic below)

    Specs:
    • Size 42. im 187 cm tall, 80 kg weight, fits me good/ a bit tight
    • Teacore shinki Horse Hide
    • Brass Talon zips

    Sizing:
    • Chest - Armpit to armpit seam (back) - 56cm
    • Sleeve - Shoulder seam to cuff - 65cm
    • Length - Hem to collar seam - 60cm
    • Shoulder - Between the shoulder seams - 47 cm
    • Can provide any additional info / pics
    The idea is wha you can just give this jacket hell for few years, and do repairs / restoration afterwards: replace the lining, restore damaged stitching, cut sleeves by 0.5cm and restore them, etc.

    Asking EUR 700 + shipping. Jacket is located in Netherlands.

    Great jacket! Love the tea core effect. Great balance to the stiff horse from LW and others.

    I just walked over to Blue and Greene to see if this 42 would fit me. Alas, they no longer carry RMC jackets...
    I love this!

    My limited experience with RMC is to size up as well. I'm a 40 and my RMC J-100 is a size 42. Like this jacket, but I feel too old to be wearing a J-24.

    Hey Eric, that man and our member Terry - they both are my Heroes!
    Though, Terry looks absolutely cool in every his jacket, I mean - not only wearing any MC but wearing every his jacket!
    My sincere respect to both gentlemen!
