    Someone may recall this jacket that I posted earlier this year. Horween CXL thin version, seal color. This is the kind of CXL that John made some Aero A2 (red knit) with, has that crumbled paper look, but with wear it flattens out and start to crease nicely. Truly a magnificent marvel in terms of reproduction, except the label. John even kept the cord double collar. I provide the brown tweed lining. Japanese hardware, vintage size tag inside the pocket. New old stock United Carr small ring snap on inner pocket. It’s GW size 46, but after a while the waist is too big for me. I’m gonna order a new one with smaller waist. Will provide measurement soon.

    Those measurements seem small for a 46. I wish it were a tad larger in the P to P for me. Gorgeous jacket!!

    Hi, im relisting this jacket. It's a great jacket, unique leather. Unfortunately the hem is a little large for me. Actually even the chest fits a little loose for me. I'm. 6 '1" 210. 43.5 inch chest. Wear size 33 trousers, 35 inch actually waist measurement. Asking 750$. If this fits it's one of the best jackets at this price on fedora lounge. Top 5 in my collection which include flat head, real mccoys, good wear, himel, aero , Eastman ,lost worlds etc.

    So this didn’t sell.

    Do you have fit pics? I don’t I understand from the measurements how this can fit you loose in the chest ...

    Edit: Sorry, I see you’re flipping it here .... still some fit pics or tape measurements might help

    thanks

    I’m sorry you felt it’s loose? Your body measurements are all bigger than me. Maybe give it some wear? Because the shoulder and upper back m will be tight if the sizing goes down but it’s a personal preference

    And in that case, you definitely should not buy the Lewis, you’d be feeling the same

    The chest actually fits well. I'm sort of tapered so the waist seems big. It's not terrible by any means. I'll post som fit pics later compared to some other jackets too

    If not too much trouble, maybe lay a tape on the jacket to give us the measurements. I know they were given in the original post but it would be nice to see them.

    Thanks

    Hi guys. So there were three offers almost simultaneously. I'm selling to the first offer who didn't ask for more pictures or measurements. I hope that's the appropriate etiquette in this situation. Thanks again!!
