Well I just got it. A squeaky beast it is.

AMAZING! It's built like a tank and actually fits me pretty well I'd say. Spare room to grow a bit if needed but nothing crazy, the shoulders are extended but in this pattern it works. This one really is broken in, the leather has a lot of character.

I didn't even bother measuring, just tried it on and feels great and I can move around and reach forward and to the sides (Was looking for mobility on my bike, the other leather jackets don't offer such mobility and that's a problem)

It goes straight into a box for my family to gift it to me on Christmas but I'm so happy.

All the zippers work great but It looks like the main zipper was replaced with a YKK double way zipper(doesn't look original) at some poin. If it bothered me I guess I could have Stu replace it with something more appropiate but not a priority at the moment.

Home run. My favorites all-time jacket. Repro, original, whatever- the design is bad ass while still classy.

I was under the impression that were affiliated with RMC Japan….no?
A joke.
They are. They are the supplier of leather jackets to RM. I guess technically speaking, it is Japanese brand owned by a Japanese owner made for the Japanese market. On the other hand they as you said just copied old jackets and perhaps shrink them a little bit and the machinists are New Zealanders.
The new RM are not only made in Japan. They also modified the pattern. The old RM are higher end reenactment repros. The new RM at least has some design input into the old patterns and is more a niche street fashion brand like Tenderloin and At Last.
At times, I think the old RM (save the workwear division) is the high end WPG, ATF or WW2 impressions.

Almost made it through the entire year without buying another jacket, and then December happened.

US Navy issued peacoat from the 50s (Kersey wool) arrived today and is chilling in the freezer:

And then this gem popped up a few days later that I couldn't BIN fast enough (currently en route):

Christmas coming early this year!

I did. Wasn't sure I would, since I put in a snipe just a little over the highest bid.
I was there at the end, but could not go higher due to size. Will this jacket fit you? You got one amazing jacket! If this would have fit me I would have bought it and even paid more!

RPs is this style and era are very scarce, then factor in the condition and you have one fine catch.

Please report when you have it in hand.

Will do. Sizing might be on the small side, but if it doesn't fit, I'll probably try to sell it for about what I paid.
