    Up for sale is a vintage Lewis Leathers jacket, not sure about the exact model number, but a reasonable guess would be lightning series.
    You could find other examples of the same model online without too much difficulty. eg.
    https://www.thefedoralounge.com/thr...ghtning-no-391-leather-jacket-size-40.100137/


    The leather is mid weight, doesn’t feel as thick as today’s typical Schott or Lewis, but very dense, still feels strong and solid. Based on the color of the side of the leather panels as well as the leather stripes, the leather is highly likely to be veg tanned, which is not that commonly seen on these vintage pieces.


    The special thing about this jacket is its unique pronounced teacore effect. For most parts, the teacore color is bright orange rather than the typical light brown. If you look closely at the pictures, you’ll notice that the teacore color is consistently bright orange at almost all the edges and corners that it appears.


    Tagged size 42, but actual measurements is more like a 44, so please check the numbers below and use your own judgment.

    Approximate measurements:
    Shoulder to shoulder: 19.5’’
    Armpit to armpit: 23.5’’
    Sleeve length: 24’’
    Back length (collar base to the bottom): 25.5’’

    Some lining fraying at the inner pocket and one cuff. Apart from that the jacket is in very good vintage condition.

    Asking for $600 PayPal F&F shipped CONUS.

    Feel free to ask questions, thanks for your time.
