    Yeah I’ve had a 44” from SB I have a hard time believing that measurement. Although the pic does look pretty legit.

    That very concern crossed my mind when looking at the cross-zip. Plus, the seller mentioned an odor. But it seems that wasn’t exactly the case. Too bad for me, great for you.

    That order is something special with the three horsehide SGs I have. I think it's intoxicating something I mean to bring up in the Cal Leather tread

    Oh yes, I know the smell. Both of my Cals have it, one very strong. I love it. Damn it, the lady selling it said I would need to air the jacket out. I so dislike trying to eliminate smells that it made me pause. Then I said to myself, it’s a Cal, you don’t need another Cal with a different label. It’s a Cal. I talked myself out of it and left it alone.

    My Ventura has a nice cuff strap that I find pleasing both aesthetically and functionally.

    The SGs are great! But I really can’t wait to see that Schott and see what you’ assessment is. A rare Japanese market Schott we’ve never seen here. Might be nothing, but it sure looks special and unique. Great haul you got there.

    He didn't say much about the buckles beyond that they are brass. Here is what he said about the leather and hardware:

    This jacket is a stock size 44 Ventura, made with cowhide. This cowhide has a comfortable drape, but it has good weight. The color is a very dark brown, and there's tons of grain that will only get more pronounced as the jacket is used. The leather weight is about 3oz. The lining is a smooth rayon from the UK. The zipper is a heavy No.6 Crown, but is from the era when Coats & Clark owned the brand, and so the slider is marked C & C on the pull tab.

    You bet. I’m thinking too narrow and too long. But it’s 2020 and things are going pretty good so far so...

    Leather jackets with shorts and flip flops is a thing around here, although we call them slippah.
