    I don't know Boyo, seeing as how if they made one big enough for me, a real Freewheelers would probably cost about 20 times what this cost me it is pretty interesting. Then again, I don't get too much leather jacket weather and life is short. It is a good conversation piece at the very least.

    it looks good the color looks tropical too, you live in salty air I suppose you need a beater, wear it often when it wrinkles and colors patina it might look even better people might not have the heart to do the same with the fw version.

    If your hair is falling out or you have a rash, please don't be surprised ... I doubt the cheap asian products in terms of the tanning process :D

    Edit: Okay it's a copy of the copy (copy of FW and FW copied it from an original) but on the other hand, a nice jacket in terms of appearance and fit.

    Hey @Mysteryo

    This fits me pretty well, and is larger than I have seen in a Chinese jacket. The size tag is not related to any of my other jackets. Most of my GWs are tagged 44, and some 46 in "vintage" sizing. Where I usually have trouble is finding long enough sleeves. I am probably either a 44 long or a 46, or 46 long in some jacket sizes.

    This is what I measured with the jacket flat, using a cloth tape:

    P to P 24 inches
    Shoulder 19 inches
    Sleeve (around curve on outside) 27 inches
    Back 27 inches

    My Arcadia is tag size 44
    P to P 23.5 inches
    Shoulder 19.5 inches
    Sleeves 27 inches
    Back 26 inches

    It is no GW, or Himel, or Shinki, but it isn't terrible cow hide either. The stitching is straight and clean single needle, no French seams, but the back pleating is done well. It has backing buttons on the front buttons of the cuffs, decent burnished brass colored hardware with YKK zippers, good strong main zipper maybe a #8, and some sort of synthetic light weight sateen lining and pockets.

    I think it is a decent jacket.
