    I'm not familiar with the brand, but if it is British in origin, there's a fair likelihood that it's sheep. Sheep was the norm for a lot of British jackets going back, even bike jackets like Lewis in their early 60s heyday.

    I certainly would buy it but the 20-21” P2P is a no go. Looks like the thick, real early HH. Seller seems to be a cool dude. I was told it has a “vintage shop” odor so expect something that would have to be mitigated/cleaned. But for that price...sheesh. Throw out a lower offer!

    Can't believe that Cal is still here! No way that's 21" P2P with 19" shoulders. Gotta be more. Worth the investment in any case. Literally impossible not to make a profit on it!

    I do know P2P is on point. I bet shoulders are less than stated.

    Lol, at $90 for a freaking original Cal jacket, it's worth the risk every day and twice on Sunday. Man, these are the best jackets in the world! And this one's a perfect example, made from that old heavy HH. Judging by the zippers, it's a really early jacket. Dude won't ship overseas otherwise I'd be long sold.

    No kidding. I do have one with the exact P2P measurements and I can zip it but I would need to start running again and lay off the weights for it to be wearable zipped all day. Mine is no kidding one of the “originals” and I don’t want to get rid of it. The perfect example of a 50s version of the Cal. Degenerate that I am I take it out just to look at it. Lol. This one here looks to be just as old with less wear and the fur collar.

    Man, that would've been long gone already but the auction is US only! Won't even let me bid. Can't do nothing but watch and cry...

    One less thing to worry about. Besides, if it's really 21" P2P, I couldn't zip it up. Someone sure got themselves a sweet deal!

    Not for the faint of heart...
    Unsure of the maker. Will be a bit of a project, mildly scared ;)
