    I have a Lost Worlds J.A. Dubow B3 tagged size 40 in superb condition (only worn a few times) that I’d like to trade for a slightly smaller B3. (You guys know what the LW B3 is, but here’s the link to all the deets: http://www.lostworldsinc.com/B-3_Sheepskin_Flight_Jacket.htm). The jacket has a very nice knobbly cream shearling and the shell has an attractive red cast that stands out in natural light. I will gladly provide more pix. While it is truly an amazing jacket, it just doesn’t fit—I generally wear a 38–40 depending on cut, but this jacket fits more like a 42. In any case, I’m hoping someone has one they’d like to trade. It’s not even broken in yet and it comes from a non-smoking, no cats household. I would prefer an Eastman, but I’m open to other premium makers (the usual suspects: RMC, Good Wear, Buzz Rickson, Aero, etc.). So if you have a B3 that never comes out of the closet because it’s just a smidge too small for you, drop me a line and maybe we can do each other a solid.

    Here are the measurements of my Lost Worlds Dubow:
    • Shoulders, seam to seam across back: 20.5 in. (50.07 cm)
    • Shoulder to cuff, measured straight down: 25 in. (63.5 cm)
    • Armpit to armpit across back (seam to seam): 24 in. (60.96 cm)
    • Length, measured from collar seam in center back to bottom hem: 27 in. (68.58)
    I am looking for a jacket with the following approximate measurements:
    • Shoulders, seam to seam across back: 20 – 20.5 in. (50.8 – 52.07 cm)
    • Shoulder to cuff, measured straight down: 24 – 24.5 in. (60.96 – 62.23) (depends on shoulder width)
    • Armpit to armpit across back: 22 – 22.5 in. (55.88 – 57.15 cm)
    • Length, measured from collar seam in center back to bottom hem: 25 – 25.5 in. (63.5 – 64.77 cm)
    Thanks for looking. Keep your heads down and stay safe!

    Bump! I should note that I would also consider a Five Star B-3 (as the reviews here seem quite good), but I'd likely need a bit of additional wampum to make that swap work. Let's talk. I should also note that the details they provide on their size chart seem a bit odd, so please refer to my preferred measurement range in the listing. Cheers, y'all!
