Hey Gary,  i'm psyched to see you on here, though it's been a long time. I bought a CP Company leather jkt via eBay in size 52.  It's a short leather jkt with 4 patch pockets in dark brown. My problem is i can barely fit my arms in the sleeves as they're so narrow.  In addition i can hardly button the front as the chest barely reaches together.

Sold unfortunately
I had the privilege of working for Murray at Louis during the hey-days 80' and 90's.  Not only was he the finest retailer in menswear, he was a real mensch. We had Luciano in our store many Saturday mornings for that season's collection kick-off.  Listening to Luciano tell his story is hearing a gentleman of ultimate quality, in clothing, style and life. 15yrs later, his clothing still hangs, timelessly in my closet.  I think some of the pieces are just starting...
