    After much internal debate, I’ve decided that the cut of this jacket is simply too long for me. Otherwise, amazing jacket. Simplified D Pocket. Nice touches like the hidden pocket under the collar and pockets lined with the Navajo lining. Limited pieces available per year. X-150 leather. I love this jacket- just too long for me.

    Little bit of wear at bottom of two-way zip bc it is too long on me. Works perfectly. All else perfect. Beautiful jacket, you won’t be disappointed.

    $500 Shipped US, PayPal F&F. Thanks for looking.

    P2P: 23.5”
    Hem: 21”
    Sleeve (around curve): 26”

    I probably don't "need" this jacket with every different liner variation as well, but you should know that it did cross my mind!

    Agreed j max the back length on these is to long?? I don't understand otherwise it's a kik ass jacket. I sold a schott/3sixteen collab an the reason it was easy is because of the 26.5 boc -hem. To long. Good call

    It is a great jacket...for a taller gent. Or if you like the longer, everything is nearly a car coat look. But in this, you best have slim hips.

    I am 6'2" an i find it 1" too long even for me.
    IMO it was specced that way to work with low rise jeans+ untucked T shirts.
    I think it went something like this:

    "if i wear this jacket without tucking my T shirt it looks like i am wearing a dress"
    "why don't you tuck your t shirt?"
    "that's not cool!"
    "ok, we make the jacket longer, now you can look cool"
    "but it's too long, when i sit down it chokes me out!"
    "here is a two way zipper, that'll fix it"

    IMO the correct fix would have been to buy a belt and shorter T shirts, screw the extra length and the two way zipper!
    (i still love that jacket, but it would be even better with 1" less)

    I was surprised how large these fit. I had a Large briefly. I am usually either L or XL, and it was too big on me. I thought about trying a Medium, but I have not worn a medium anything since I was 16 years old...

    I nabbed it. Had to. Missed my old one with the green plaid lining. @JMax gets the Jelado cross-zip. All is quiet on the West Coast front.

    Congratulations Nick! I know you’ve expressed a couple times now that you regret selling the first one you had and it’s cool to see you get another chance at the Commando.

    It's a killer jacket. Has enough design flare to be slightly different than the standard mc jacket. Agree with the previous posts in the discussion-the length is its only low point. It sits long. But there are also a few other Japanese brands that have come out with a longer cross-zips (Sugar Cane comes to mind). So it is what it is. I know it fits because this was my old medium, with the plaid lining. I'm now 20 lbs heavier lol.

    Brilliant trade! I think both jackets will fit their new owners better. God bless TFL.

    I looked at my jacket arsenal today and I think I'm rather content. This one's a gem, but predictably, back up for sale. I have too many.

    Oh Nick, this will place you in the rare company that only our most diehard members know: where you will regret selling a jacket not once, but twice!
