    Up for grabs is my dark brown vintage 60s Bates Leather Mates- tagged 42, but it fits more like a 40-42.

    Believe me when I say that if it wasn’t too big, I would never put it on the market.

    Fit recommendation: I believe this jacket would be best for someone 5’10 and taller, with an athletic or slender body type as it is cut with a more modern slim fit. It is not intended to be a full-cut or baggy jacket.

    Measurements (approx.):
    Size 42
    pit to pit: 21.75 in / 55.245 cm
    shoulders: 18.5 in / 47 cm
    back length: 28 in / 71.12 cm
    sleeves: 25 in / 63.5 cm (straight line)... 27 in / 68.58 cm (along curve)
    hem: 20.25 in / 51.44 cm


    ***Fair warning- once you allow yourself to indulge in one of these more luxurious collars, it’s hard to go back to some of the less satisfying smaller-collared
    designs.

    Here is a gallery with 25 photos and taped measurements:

    Please ask any questions by PM or "Start a conversation".
    Title it Bates.

    PRICE UPDATE: ASKING $150 + SHIPPING
    [ Original Price: Asking $165 + shipping]

    I'm happy to send it internationally at cost.
    Venmo as "gift" or Paypal accepted as "friends and family"

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you for the inquiries!

    To answer one member:
    The sleeve opening measures about 4.25 in. when zipped, and about 5.25 in. when unzipped.

    I am tempted but i would need Dena to hack off about 3 inches of body length. Pocket placement and end of zipper are actually set up to have that done pretty easily. I was thinking of a cascade center zip w shirt style collar kinda like this.

    That jacket has a Rick Dalton vibe. Really like it and it isn't often that you seem a slim-fit in this vintage style.

    Trimming 3 in. off would put you right at the bottom of the windflap. You would still have the zipperbox 1.5 in. up from the hem, and the pockets would be fine.
    Not a bad idea.

    A member asked me about any scratches on the jacket.
    I looked it over, and there was a surface scratch near the right chest pocket.

    I fixed it. :)

    The jacket is still here, so I’m willing to accept offers.

    I never had a Bates before, but looking at the sleeves and body length ratio, this seems to be designed as a longer jacket? Just wondering.

    It would fit me exactly like this:

    I'm 178cm talk.

    Btw, thanks for posting measurements in metrics as well.

    It is a longer jacket, yes. Longer as in not belt-line long (or short). It will fit you very similar to the photo you posted. That's how my Bates in this similar style looked on me.
