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

My size? Calling dibs :)
Duly noted. It's probably about a 40/42 (will look at actual measurements if I come closer to moving it). I actually had a couple other people inquire about the jacket before it even showed up at my doorstep, but will definitely keep this in mind

Just bought an early "kindof A-2 style" Grais (40-50s?) in seemingly heavy Front Quarter Horsehide.
Wind flap, quilted lining, size 40, with the cargo pockets and handwarmers because I like'em.
Small hole in the left sleeve rib that I intend to have repaired.
Planning to use it as my cold weather beater jacket, which I will probably have custom patched and maybe even painted with nose-art in the future.

Pretty good condition considering the age and price, 130 euros total shipped from Japan to France. Will post review and fit pics as soon as I get it.
Also if any of you have the name of the zipper, I'm quite interested :)

Conmar zippers are good.

I don’t love how it fits me (short sleeves and boxy shoulders) but damn this is cool. First thought was to flip it but now I’m thinking that I’ll hold on to it for a while and see how it breaks in. If the shoulders relax it will make a big difference.

Yes, way cool! So much in fact, that it justifies compromising on the less-than-ideal fit. Fingers crossed on the shoulders sagging a bit. You may well gain half an inch sleeve length there.
Actually I didn’t notice sleeves at all at first, as the eyes were drawn to the black and white contrast.

I really dig it on you. The short length will work both zipped and unzipped. And most of your jackets have sleeves on the shorter side anyway, don't see too much difference on this jacket. The shoulders and body will relax and make it feel more natural.

Your concerns aside, that still looks amazing imo. You sell this and I will book a transatlantic flight, knock on your door, and introduce you to the back of my hand lol. Rare jacket too. Keep it!

Wow! I didn't even notice your misgiving about the fit. It looks so good it transcends fit. And it is not bad fitting at all, just a few details that are easily glossed over with such visual impact.

I will be there as well if that were to haapen.

@torfjord , you would better not sell it otherwise you will have an angry mob of forum members knocking at your door to have a few words with you lol

Nice. I have not found any information about this label. Not sure if they were a maker or a label used by another bay area maker. Sierra do not come up that often. The few I've seen are fine looking jackets. I have one I'm very fond of. Thanks for sharing this one.
Thank you. Couldnt resist. Have been interested in a square pocket jacket but do not want one with elastic waist.

This is the first Sierra I've seen without elastic. Hercules didn't have the elastic sides either. Pennys and Sportclad did. All the Sierra jackets I've seen previously had elastic which is why I didn't buy Terry's.
