The fit looks pretty spot on.. Whatcha think Jonesy? Keeper?
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.
looks like creases like leather from here
That's a nice color.
It is actually not a bad jacket for $150.
Thats what I'm talking about
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.
Maybe I’ll break it in body surfing. LOL
Double dare ya !
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
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.
@jonesy86 i've been considering this jacket, what are the measures of your 4XL?
how do you usualy fit in american size?
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.
Just picked up my Cordovan FQHH Highwayman (without „e“). Fits like measured and planned, very, very, I mean very nice!
I really like it a lot! Only topped by my girlie who bought this as a birthday present for me!
Pix sometimes later...
That’s not how it works @Turnip...we demand pics upfront!
How cool is that, having your girlfriend supporting your hobby.
