    That has to be the same one. Nice work.
    Hard to really determine the actual measurements from those pics though. The jacket is either wrinkled up or the tape is, or the tape isn’t lined up correctly. Hopefully the OP will update us soon with accurate measurements.

    WOW! That looks way better worn than static.

    Would love to see pics of the new liner too!

    So question.... back lengths are usually taken from the seam where the collar meets the back correct? Excluding the collar itself?
    So for comparison sake to the way I usually measure, this jacket actually has a back length closer to 23” not 24.75?

    Oh man...one jacket I do miss. Getting it relined in Harris tweed looks like a good upgrade

    I bought this jacket from the guy who bought it from this seller. It is a great jacket. Complete beast. You can see the stitching where the replacement zip was sewn on (if you look closely) and the new zip doesn't have the same color (now that I told you this, you can see it in the photos); also, the side adjuster buckets are nickel instead of the antique brass that would match the original zippers and hangar chain/rivets. None of those things matter to me. It is a fantastic jacket and I love wearing it. The hide itself is awesome, as is the style and cut. It is probably a tad big for me (sleeves a drop long and wide, chest and shoulders a drop wide, back a drop long) but I m not sure if a 38 would be too small. Ideally, 39 in this model if there were such a thing.

    That one was a beaut and beast of a jacket! Also just a smidge to big for me, but a smaller size in that one would feel like a straight jacket. As for the hardware color, that's how it was built from LW. When you you use NOS Vintage zips, the metals oxidize into different shades than modern materials. So the side newer buckles may be silver (brass underneath), the pocket and sleeves zips all NOS Nickel Talons which usually have the teeth oxidize into an antique brass looking color, and the main zip being Talon but Aluminum so no oxidizing color change. Zip replacements are always dicey, but I feel Johnson Leather did an amazing job given the beast 4oz hide.

    Thanks. Good to know about the hardware colors, and, as I said, it didn't bother me anyway. I agree that Johnson Leathers did a great job on that and also on the Harris Tweed lining, which I didn't mention. They did an alteration on one of their own jackets for me and it was perfect, but, truth be told, I still like this one better and, in any event, my daughter took that one so I needed a replacement. As for the sizing, it was 40 degrees this morning and I needed a sweater over my T-shirt. That wouldn't have been possible if this one were any smaller so I will stop worrying about it. I hope you find a replacement for yourself.
