I am on the fence with selling this one as I have too many black jackets and the wool lining probably makes it the one I can wear the fewest days in my climate. If there is interest I will post more pics. I am thinking $1000 shipped on this one since it's almost flawless.

The leather is Shinki and looks like what himel calls their oil finish but keep in mind the domestic makers get first priority on the best shinki hides. It's 1.2mm thick vegetable tanned horsehide "aniline finish". Has a firm, clay-ish temper.

Shoulder width 45
p2p 51
Length 60
Sleeve length 58.5

Worn sparingly by me and treated with bick4.

Oh man. So tempting, but I'm afraid the 36 will be too small for me. Great jacket at a great price, but I think I need a 38.

Just for reference, can you tell me your height, weight and chest measurements?

I recommend comparing measurements with your best fitting jacket as fit is different from person to person.

So difficult to decide. I've been communicating with Luca at Recall. He is telling me that a 40 would work for me, but I don't think that is correct. I really dig Cbez's jacket and the price seems ideal. This will be my first Japanese jacket and don't have any sizing experience.

one of my fave things about used jackets is you can almost always resell them and break even if needed

I would agree with Will that this is a pretty generous 36 and I have never seen another one in this specific shinki leather
