    This was ant the worst ebay jacket I've ever seen (it's not even the worst I ever bought!). The OP needs to look harder. There are way more ...er.... not good jackets on eBay.

    This jacket does seem to have a nasty finish on the...leather? And the collar is nice and yellow. But...

    The actual pattern and cut seems pretty good. All of the details seem to be there, and cut seems trim.

    Looks like the owner may have been shot down. Over friendly territory!

    Well... at least they are using their own photos (Perhaps this is why many of these sellers don't!)

    Hmm, pattern may be okay(ish, very ish), but the leather, man, the leather. Takes me back to my teens and the one guy in my school year who had a leather jacket. He thought he was the mutt's nuts. Sadly, it was yer classic pig skin number - a really nasty, cheap, shapeless jacket made from pinky-beige unidentifiable leather which had a weird swirling grain/pattern.
    He wore it a hella lot initially, but people started to referring to him as 'Alan with the pig skin jacket' and no teenager's ego is strong enough to withstand that sort of ribbing...

    cyclopean shoe polish job. veritably non-euclidean. truly an eldritch nightmare worthy of abdul al hazred.

    It is ugly but, then again, if you couldn't afford a custom and were hankering after a leather, maybe you'd like it!

    The tragedy is that some poor animal gave its skin for ... that. Sacrilege.
    I mean, I know we all like our leathers, but honour the animal by making something decent. Not this.

    It still isn't as bad as that appalling Nigel Cabourn Coastal Command jacket !

    HA! If Cabourn would take ninety quid for it, I might consider wearing his CC jacket!

    Put a zero after it.......and a one in front.

    Then beat it with an ugly stick.

    Sheep's leather, is in "used to belong to a sheep".
    As for the other monstrosity, the "M-442A", I wonder what it would've looked like if they hadn't botched the distressing process? Maybe not quite as horrible. Seems like a beta model to me. The collar reminds me of creepy hair implant hair, or a weird orange chia pet. Water the collar and it grows.
