    I have two black horsehide jackets that I’m considering moving. Both come from a smoke-free home (but one with a Yellow Lab for those with allergies).

    The first is a 1930s Half Belt made by Aero for Insurrection in Seattle. You can see more about the jacket on Insurrection’s website here:

    http://www.insurrectionvintage.com/online-shopping-new-jackets.html

    The Half Belt is a size 40, it has very limited wear and has never been exposed to the weather (rain, snow, etc.).

    The second is a Buco J100 replica made by Diamond Sportswear (with some tie-in to John Chapman at Good Wear but this is a replica Buco, not a Good Wear jacket). You can see more about the Buco on Diamond Sportswear’s website here:

    http://diamondcapco.com/bucoj100.html

    The Buco is a size 42 and it has never been worn outside.

    PM for more information (measurements, pictures, pricing, etc.).

    Very VERY tempting :p

    Now, if that was one of DD's J23s I wouldn't even blink!

    The half belt is fqhh, I presume? Or is it the mid-weight/jerky in black?

    Horween FQHH - still quite stiff (one point though, the Insurrection model on their website has a button on fur collar; that was removed, along with the buttons under the collar).

    New to the forum, and need 15 posts before I can send a PM. I'm interested in the Half Belt. I just have a few questions about size and I know that there can be some differences between the way that different people measure - we can discuss this via email.

    Thanks

    Thought that might be the case. Thanks for the update though.
