Hey all,

I am finally having to admit that the sleeves on this jacket are not long enough for my gorilla arms. I bought this directly from Tony (Ton312) and it's an amazing example of Vanson's old TEACORE competition weight leather. There are multiple areas that have worn through to the lighter tan leather and the patina is glorious. The lining is in great shape, all zippers work.

***I think MAYBE somebody smoked in it a long time ago, but the smell is very subtle - I hate the smell of cigarette smoke, and I have no issue wearing this jacket. I'm not 100% because I'm a nonsmoker, it could just be a little old jacket mustiness?*** I don't think it's an issue, but I want to be transparent.

I've taken careful measurements and lots of photos. It's been stored in my pet free home. Please PM me with any questions.

I'm asking $275 shipped and insured to the USA.

Here are a the measurements:

Chest: 23.5"
Bottom Hem: 21"
Left Sleeve: 25.5"
Right Sleeve: 25.5"
Shoulders: 19.5"
Back Length: 27" (has slight dip in back, probably would be 26.5" without it)

The temptation to bring this one home is STRONG.
It fit me well.

Glad this one is coming back to you Tony! :)
I was close to picking it up, but these sleeves are borderline for me in length.

This is pretty much the reason for the sale. It's such a nice jacket that it took me a season to accept that I should let it go, but my arms are about an inch too long for it (at least for how I like my sleeve length).
