    This is brand new with tags, purchased from Standard & Strange - here is a description, features, sizing:

    A brief note: I am Newcomer from Styleforum. I've been around for a lot time, just on a different forum :). I am sure folks around here can vouch for me.

    Kotaro and Ian from Nine Lives design and craft garments unlike anything you've seen come out of Japanese craft manufacturing. The textiles and leathers used come from the best mills and tanneries in Japan; the factories and ateliers that cut and sew for them are the best in the world. Every step along the way is pushed further to produce something slightly feral, slightly out of step with the world.

    This is their signature rider's jacket rendered in black yak leather, finished in two different oils to give it both a stiff drape and soft hand once broken in. Yak has a higher tensile strength than cow, and the combination of that and the finishing oils produce a jacket that is subtly but visibly different from a steerhide piece.

    The best zipper YKK makes, the Excella, hold it shut and keep the cuffs from flapping. Front zipper is 2-way, of course, for ease of sitting and ease of looking good. A second sunglasses pocket, tapered to keep your glasses upright in the pocket, sits right below your rib cage.

    When we say tailored fit, this thing goes on like a bespoke suit jacket, and feels just as nice. The western yoke at the back combined with the trim fit and high armoles give it an aggressive stance without being in your face about. The jacket is fully lined, including the sleeves.

    These are Japanese-sized, and run quite small. You may have to go up two sizes.
    • 1.1mm Japanese-tanned yak leather
    • YKK Excella 2-way zipper
    • Zipper cuffs
    • 2 interior pockets
    • 2 hand pockets
    • All pockets feature deep leather trim
    • No belt loops
    • Slim, tailored fit - we recommend sizing up 1 size
    • Made In Japan
    Front Length - 27.75"
    Shoulder - 18.5"
    Chest - 43.5"
    Sleeve Length -26.75"

    This is a great deal. Just want to move it on because it makes me sad looking at it in my closet.

    Might be pushing my budget, but would you send to Melbourne, Aust?

    Of course, provided we could work something out with shipping (I usually charge the difference between CONUS and international).

    This is a great deal, a new one costs $2,150 and is mostly sold out. How many people on here can say they have a yak leather jacket? Good luck with the sale!

    I am a pretty standard 40 (trending towards a 41), and this was too big for me.

    So glad this went to a happy home. Congratulations! Oh, and for those shipping from CONUS to Australia... maybe wait until after the pandemic.
