    Trying this again to see if I can get some bites. Looking for a halfbelt size depending on #'s but 42"-44" typically. Kind of a desert on Ebay, Etsy. Thurston Bros doesn't seem to stock them anymore and nothing decent on Aero's sale page in my size....help a brother out. Will consider repro's and vintage. Thank you!

    Monitor has a pretty epic Lee Trevor for sale, really good price!

    Not a half-belt but could be worth a little modification job?

    I have, the measurements seem completely off on literally every jacket they have listed. Tiny shoulders until you get to size 46", which is entirely too large for me. Lots of 42" and 44" with 17-18.5" shoulders.

    yeah, I was noticing that I could fit in a lot of 42s and I'm mostly a 38/40 on the Aeros. There's 2 Type 3s that on paper shouldn't fit, but man it's close and it's tempting. And I wanted to get one of the shearling vests but those are only 10% off and the sizing a bit weird (super short like 21 inch or way too long like almost 25)

    edit: and someone scored that Indian Ranger. Been watching that for months. So tempted. If it had had a full belt, I would hit BIN so fast yesterday.

    There are two Californians in "Ebay Kleinanzeigen" (Classifieds) in Germany. One size 42 and one in 46. If you need help, I'm sure you can count on some German or Austrian loungers (including myself).

    Appreciate it Angel! I think the best fit for me would be a 44” in that model. I had a chnace at one awhile back and blew it.

    I sold a very nice 44 a couple of weeks ago. I'll let you know when I spot another one.

    Yeah I sent that seller messages trying to convey reality, but they went ignored. It’s a great jacket but the price is somewhat....laughable IMO.
