I have a size 44 Vanson CHP that I purchased less than a year ago and have only worn about 6 times. I purchased the jacket directly from Kim from Vanson at a show. I told her I preferred not having belt loops so she showed me how to have them removed and the stitching replaced. I then had them professionally removed (no stitch holes). Jacket is amazing I just don't wear it, as I also have a vintage model "c" (predecessor to c2), and a "commando" from Vanson. Instead of trying to sell I thought I'd offer it up for trade. I'd be open to something like a bootlegger or a nice Cafe racer. Feel free to contact me with any offers.
