    Yes I hear you mate. I have been out of the Northern hemisphere coming 30 years and could not now cope with the temperature conditions. My wife and I discuss moving within Australia to "avoid" the future winters once we are retired.
    Far north Queensland has it's allure (Cyclones and humidity aside....)

    You are right, out of the Cals I have owned, only this one is perfect. I never will part with it. At some point I will reline it, though I am am not sure with what.

    About when was this made, do you know? It looks like its in too good of shape from the era I picture in my mind, but has that look. In any case its freaking perfect for that style. Wouldnt change a thing.

    My guess is late 50s. Most of my other ones were 60s, when/where you see a different leather and different pulls. Also, I asked Gwen to date a straight-zip Cal I owned with the same leather-- she estimated early Cal, 50s. This one is in perfect shape, though the main zip was replaced. The seller knew what he had and it cost me lol.

    Personally i dont see a problem with back and sleeve length, the only potential problem i see is the length at the front.
    As @torfjord says, higher rise trousers would put your belt higher and sort out the front issue.
