    This'll break my heart as I absolutely LOVE this jacket but it's only wearable if I'm wearing seven layers of whatever and even then it's too big. It just does not fit me.

    Bought it from Carlos840, wore it on and off for a few months and... That's that. Looking to get what I paid so at €450 shipped anywhere within the EU, I'd say this is
    practically a giveaway. €510 shipped to USA.

    Price isn't negotiable. I've got it listed elsewhere for €600 and don't mind waiting.

    613H is the most classic form of 613. It's not the longer/slimmed down/whatever version; 613H is exactly the same as the 613, only in horsehide.

    I've since handled two horsehide Perfectos & they're not even close. This one's made in best looking, feeling, smelling horsehide I've ever seen from Schott. Y'know, to me personally, this just towers over CXL or whatever else but that's me. In any case, I can't really recall handling a significantly nicer leather.

    The jacket still looks & feels near new. Mint, really. It's not tremendously stiff, just really tough to break in so you've got your work cut out for you.

    Size 42 and the measurements are...
    • Chest: 23 in / 58 cm
    • Length: 24 in / 61 cm
    • Shoulders: 19.29 in / 49 cm
    • Sleeves: 26 in / 66 cm
    • Hem: 21.65 in / 55 cm

    It's no secret I'm a fan of Schott but regardless, I do not believe that you can buy a higher quality cross zip than this, by any maker. Ever. These are high-end jackets, regardless of what the internets may be telling you. Take my word on it. Or don't.

    It's a shame you have to sell this as I know you love it. Beautiful jacket and if I didn't already have mine I'd jump on this one. Very good deal.

    Forgot to say it's sold but yeah, it is a shame. It just didn't really fit me like, at all. I thought it'd be okay with layers but... Since I got Walter Dyer, which works just better, no amount of compromise could convince me this is anywhere near my size. Oh well...
