    Hey everyone,

    I've been looking for a Fine Creek Leather Leon (The Noster) in a size 40 for months. I seem to keep missing them by a hair. Does anyone have any leads or a jacket they are interested in selling?

    Thanks!

    Either one. Used would be ok if it weren't damaged.

    Why do you say so? They aren't aged or "worn"

    The belt and epaulettes are cut off and the remaining portion of both are left attached to the jacket.

    I am not familiar with their other jackets models but it is only the Leon Custom that is as you say. The Leon (The Noster) has all belts and epaulettes attached.

    Get on Instagram and check their page. Then search for Japanese stores that post their stuff. I sourced my jackets from a few good stores in Japan.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I've spoken with Self Edge who is the dealer here in the states. They have the Leon Custom coming in in a weeks and they say I might be able to special order the Leon (The Noster) in August but they're not sure.

    Yes they shipped from Japan to the US. Again, easiest way I found was to use search on Instagram for the jacket and the contacting the store. Took a minute to find one that what ship but wasn’t too much trouble. You can try California Harvest or outside Japan, Pancho and Lefty. Not sure these two stores have them in stock, hard to get but check. Otherwise, just look to see who is posting one on IG and contact.

    Do you know if custom (without the belt) is the same thickness? 1.8mm?

    Literally same jacket. I have both and no difference in thickness. They create a Noster and then cut off belt/epaul. Literally how they create the jacket. I will say, if you really like the style of the Leon with the belt and epaul, buying a Custom will not suddenly make you want one less.

    lol. That's what I was afraid of hahah. I think I found a place to order a Leon (The Noster). I'm just waiting to see if I can try a custom on to make sure I get my size right before I order. Self Edge has some customs coming in in a few weeks.

    Thanks for the info. That's really helpful!

    I found they run a size small. I am a standard 40 and the 42 fit perfectly. 40 wouldn’t have worked. Narrow through the shoulder and chest.

    Just to chime in I am 38 normally, size s in schott and the FCL Leon custom i took a 40 because it fit best so my thoughts are they are off on their sizing a bit.
