Hi, another catch and release from a fellow member here. I went a bit overboard with jackets lately and I'm realizing I now have too many. This jacket is beautiful but it's gotta go. I paid $800USD for this, looking to get as close to that as possible. Free shipping in NA. Open to offers, not trades. Jacket is $1200 new.

Jacket is in black CXL steerhide. Measurements in photos. Measurements are approximate as the leather is thick and it's difficult to get a true measurement.

Chest: 23.5"
Hem: 20.5"
Sleeve: 25.5"
Back: 25"
Front: 26.25"
Shoulder: 19.5"

Hi all, apologies for the flip flopping but I've decided to give it the old college try with this jacket. I think it's winning me over. If I change my mind I'll update this thread or start a new one.

No longer for sale.

Jacket is back up for sale. Price is now $750 USD shipped within continental NA. Open to offers, no trades.

My rationale for putting it back up for sale:

I've worn this jacket once since my previous post, and I've decided that ultimately I'd rather have the funds for other jackets. I have three other cross-zips besides this one that suit me fine, so the niche has been filled.

A chromexcel Schott is a rare bird, one which I may very well end up regretting parting with. The Schott brand's history and their use of Horween CXL really makes it a special jacket, a true piece of Americana. It's a real looker of a jacket, the pictures don't do it justice. Please help me give this jacket a good home! Thanks for your time.

Cross posted to ebay. In the interest of a quick sale, I've also decided to drop the price to $700 USD shipped within continental North America for Lounge members.

You sold this to my buddy Darrell. He reached out to me and sent me the eBay link to ask about this jacket. Told him it’s a great jacket. Didn’t realize it was listed here on TFL until just now. Obviously if I would have known I would have sent him here to get eBay out of the picture. The leather jacket world is indeed a very small one haha!

He made me an offer I couldn't refuse, haha. Hope he enjoys the jacket!
