Quoting myself here but wanted to add some pics:
And the million $ question, how does it fit?
These are seller's pics. Seller's measurements look good for me too.
A few months back I found this jacket in a 46. It was a bit too wide at the shoulders and a tad roomy in the chest. My CHP is a 44 and the J23 a 46 with the same measurements as the CHP 44. All that to say-- Fingers crossed that the 44 is spot on, I believe it will be.
I don't have the CHP, but the Trojan does feel a bit less tight than the J23. So it's looking good
Good to know. The CHP also feels a bit less tight than the J23. Thanks.
Cool Carlos: I think I could wear this will riding don't know if I would not be self-conscious wearing it while walking my dogs or going out for a cool one
The only LW I own is a size 44 trojan and it is large in the shoulder roomy at the chest and waist perfect sleeves.
For reference, the brown Cal Leather I got from you is a perfect fit with a light shirt.
Thanks, that helps. The brown Cal was a bit tight on me. Wearable but tight. The Trojan just might be perfect then. I recall fit pics of your Trojan, and it looked stellar.
Won't be long..
You're almost there. I'd love a Monarch some day.
i don't think you'd be disappointed.
Dave is fanatical(in a good way) about Monarchs.
Holy Christ, me too.
Looks like JL is updating their web page too.
Haha I literally just came here to post that.
JL just jumped ahead of the game. Any game. Ever. This is SO cool! Why in God's name this isn't their flagship jacket!?
Now if they could just finish the collar for my damn CAL....
Langlitz marries a Cal.....this is their baby!
Any idea what leather this is? I am assuming it is their overdye horse? That is one badass jacket.
Not sure looks like horse. Looks a lot like the langlitz columbia I sold. Gussets on langlitz were not functional. I think i would lower the back yolk I like when it lines up with the arm seams. None the less great looking jacket
This one arrived late yesterday. It's an instant favorite.
It has really thin leather but it drapes nicely. Feels sorta Brooks-ish.
The overall design strikes me as very rectangular. It has Lightning main zips and YKKs for the sleeves and pockets, so it must be a transitional piece. Something about the design of these old BCL cafe racers just says "cool."
So, now I have among the longest CRs and shortest (Vanson Comet).
