The fit of the Brooks is better than the RMC Buco though in my experience
Kehoe is my favorite of this style.
Yeah, this one looks pretty nice. Too small for me though.
I'll second that as I have one both in black and brown.
(And a mustard Brooks.)
@handymike et al
What do you think of Brimaco in this style?
I’ve been looking for one that fits! I love the extended strap at the neck, but the jackets seem to be pretty long.
Carrie has a women's Brimaco that she says would fit my daughter, and Carie is The Jacket Whisperer, so I may go for it.
That small Kehoe might work for my daughter as well. Hmmmm.
Here's a womens' Kehoe:
Found a new old stock usa made alpha industries m65 field jacket and it is on the way ! Size small hope it works with no liner. 120 bones. If it doesnt work ill be returning or flipping here.
been enjoying my used camo golden mfg m65 with liner on these frozen days
The M-65 runs pretty large, I found a regular small in perfect condition at a thrift shop--with no liner I can wear it comfortably over layers. I'm 5'10" and 180 so smalls are not usually in the mix for me.
Oh good thanks for the reply. I am 5 10 170 so ill stop stressing it. I can easily return it, it is just opening that box after waiting and then something not fitting just kills me lol
Totally feel that, such a let down when the fit doesn't work.
I just bought my first leather jacket, I've got other very cool vintage jackets but all are either wool or cotton, and the guys here seem to love their leather! This one's a calfskin "Campus" jacket from the 1940's or 50's. It looks to be in great shape, the reputable seller claimed no dryness of the hide. Another guy was offering me a 1940's A-2 for a little higher than the price of this one, so it was a toss-up between the two. Paid $285, only wish it had a half-belt but that alone doubles the asking price, I'm sure.
I found hardware (antigued brass twist locks, eyelets, zipper and studs),
And 1.5mm vegtan natural 35 sgfeet.

Turned out many handbag material suppliers here . I have leftover liner fabrics i bought for my blue jacket, so basically all the ingredients are collected... i feel like playing sandbox RPG collecting stuff to craft armor right now. the last step is to mule all that to an armorer safely without being robbed by marauders or mauled by werebear on the way.
Watch out for that sexy princess that may be some 300 pound dude in tightie whities sitting in an oversized lazy boy named Ralph.
that's why I don't play mario bros man, I always suspect princess peach is a dude in drag
too poor for princesses, can only staring at wenches from a far... for free
haha, so we are on the same page. Truly scary stuff out there.
Love the lining, love the color on this Jacket. Nicely styled. Looks more like Capeskin? A very popular leather in the day.
This jacket is from the 30s in capeskin. More pictures here.
