    Get the man a Grizzly. He has the replacement for when the hairs start falling off.

    It looks a couple sizes too small, doubt he can even zip it up.

    Pretty sure i have seen this dude before on eBay, isn't it from a shop in Israel?
    The guy always has the rug out, and always has jackets a couple sizes too small.

    Oh I don’t know maybe it is the next big thing. Expose the bear suit, it’s so 70s.

    Aside from being too small, what is wrong with it?

    I believe you are right. He seems to be the model for a lot of vintage jackets, most of which look very thrashed and barely wearable, but look really "cool" under the lighting that they shoot with. I thought he was from South America, though. If he's his own small business, and modeling jackets he came by for resale, then probably he doesn't have a lot of control over the sizing, but it does seem like nearly everything they sell is way small. At least for big, fat Americans to wear.

    I should have been more clear. The sizing is less of an issue for me. IMHO, the unbuttoned shirt and exposed chest hair is far more detrimental to the presentation of the jacket.

    Seen on eBay a few times and the location he’s selling from is Colombia.

    The jackets are always painted on him. He clearly isn’t particularly good looking either but aside from that? I don’t think he’s wearing anything outrageous.

    I suspect he needed a shoe horn to get that jacket on.

    What's even more hilarious is the price he set it at for sale. A long tradition of LOL prices...based on the "born every minute" principle.

    ^ little that he knew at that time breathing on Chuck Norris's chest hair is 10x more dangerous than asbestos dust that later costed his life.
