How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

I think it's a Beck, not sure what the actual connection between these two brands was though. Check out this old deadstock Beck. It matches the jacket to a T. Tag label at the neck, stars on epaulets, and belt placement (but this other jacket has had the stars, belt, and tag removed).

Dimensions of the tag would indicate Beck in this case so you're probably right but in any case, it was Schott that produced jackets for Beck at some point, hence the resemblance. Snap on belt-loops with a removable belt vs fixed half-belt was the only major difference between the two.
Without the belt-loops, the jacket MojoStick posted looks virtually identical to the 1960's Schott Perfecto.

Beck 999 has side laces and there seems to be laces showing under the waist band next to the sleeve in the photo of the jacket with the missing label.

I’m thinking it is a Beck. Identical, except for all missing parts.
It was a killer deal! $50! Leather has great patina and is soft and pliable.

Nice score.

Nice score. May I know the measurements of this size 38? The 666s from the same era are usually undersized. Most size 38 has a barely 38 inches pit to pit on the outside.
Shoulder seam to seam: 18”
pit to pit: 19”
sleeves: 24”
collar to bottom hem: 27”
waist: 18”

Have this vintage Vanson Ike on the way, ‘70s per the seller, in what is described as soft steerhide with a somewhat worn collar.

It appeared to have sold a week ago but popped back up again, seems to have short sleeves but hope they work out. Hope there are no odd/undisclosed issues. Really like the one @Worf has posted occasionally, high hopes!

I can't wait to see more of this one. WOW!!

Ever since I tried @mendelboaz Vanson jackets earlier this summer, I’ve been convinced their patterns are on a higher level in terms of comfort and freedom of movement. For me only comparable to Thedi out of the makers that I’ve owned or handled. I have really high hopes for the C2 that is on it’s way as I’ve realised I’ve missed having a perfecto style since I sold my 618 a year ago.

The comet and royale enfield I had both had great range of motion. I‘be been missing having Vanson in the line up since I moved the comet. If the fit is good I bet you’ll be very happy!

My first Vanson was also a revelation, they feel good and they sit well on the wearer

My Vanson Gambler is the heaviest but, strangely, also the comfiest of my jackets.
Vanson for the win.
