    Nice Type III. Leather is midweight, nicely broken in and a bit faded, unless it was grey originally. Size M, and just a bit small. I can wear it, but it's a very close fit, particularly at the waist.

    I'm debating keeping it or flipping it. What do you think? Any interest?

    Nicely faded. Fit well on the shoulder, beside no one wear denim jacket buttoned on the lowest button. If 2 of the middle buttons work then its good.

    Number 3 from the bottom looks more ideal, either 3+4 , or 2+3 for me.

    Yeah, buttoning the lowest button should be illegal. :D

    Lol Guppy, how old were you in the 80's?

    That's an awesome jacket. I've been watching it the whole time until it disappeared for the last time. I think it fits you tho hard to tell since you've buttoned only the lowest button so it's really impossible to tell. But I mean, if you can do that, the jacket fits. I can't do the sixth button on my IH Type 3.

    They're totally different jackets! Brown vs. Black. Type III vs. 101-J.

    But I'm leaning sell the Schott.

    It appears too tight at the waist. And if you can't button it, then it doesn't fit.

    I've been around these parts long enough now to know that if you have nagging fit questions from the start, then they will probably never be resolved.

    Yes, it's definitely too tight at the waist. I can get it buttoned, but it's work. If I were going to wear it, I'd just wear it open. It looks reasonably OK that way, nice trim fit, but I think I'm better off flipping it.

    Flip it. Looks too tight at the waist and lower back.

    Well I found another one, same model (near as I can tell, -- there's no identifying label in either) in Large. It's in nicer condition, cleaner, less faded. I bought it, and I'm trying to decide which to keep now.

    The M seemed too tight, and it's a "super tight fit" but I think I can wear it. If I don't button it, or don't button the bottom button, it seems very form-fitting and snug, but in a good way, not an uncomfortable way.

    The L is a good fit, more casual and I can certainly wear more underneath it. Being in somewhat newer condition, I'm inclined to pick it as my keeper, and flip the M.

    To help me decide, I've taken some more photos, and am looking for feedback. I'll post the pics in the next two comments. Stand by.
