Here is my Test size 44 bought new. I have the same zipper. It is crap. Like grinding gears to zip it and it wont last long on the pin side. I have a LW Roadmaster I replaced the zip in it. My LW Suburban zipper is toast.
Great Jackets, lousy Zippers.
I'm 5' 9" and 190 in the Video.
Thanks Terry, I actually watched your LW video many times, do you have suggestion about small crack on sleeve? Should I return? Thanks
I'm sorry for disagreeing with you, but... You really need to return this jacket and not because of the crack but on the account that it simply doesn't fit you. Did LW comment on the fit? Because, if I was the maker of this jacket, I certainly would insist you send it back.
It is really, honestly too large for you. Like, regardless of your personal taste, this jacket just isn't even remotely your size. It's insanely too large in the body, it's too long, the shoulders are way too wide and you could make a pair of pants out of those sleeves.
I wish I could take a better photo of it, but I have a very similar jacket in a size 50, that fits me virtually the same. I wear 40-42. It's an old jacket, heavy as a truck (probably around LW weight, as the leather is literally 2x Vanson comp. weight) but fully broken in so you can see what your jacket is gonna look like and how this isn't exactly the most flattering jacket I could be wearing.
Again, I apologize for insisting on this, but I don't know... I just think you deserve a better fitting jacket, especially at that price tag.
