For Sale:
Good Wear horsehide leather jacket

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Up for sale is my beloved Goodwear Leather California, made of genuine horsehide. This was the original jacket that John Chapman made, and now I would dare say it's one of his most popular jackets. This one, though, is a piece of Goodwear Leather history! biggrin.gif

Mine was worn a few times per week for about a year, and shows a bit of wear at the elbows, bottom of the jacket, and a bit around the zipper. All standard wear.

There are no holes, tears or anything else that would not make this jacket a 9/10. Non-smoking home, so there are no smells or strange odors on it, either. It's absolutely awesome. The graining is completely out of this world.

Size marked is 46. Please see measurements after the photos.

Wear at elbows, not quite as pronounced in "real life":

Measurements:

Chest: 46"
Shoulder: 19.125"
Sleeves: 25"
Length (back): 23"
Length (front): 26"

I am looking for $875 for this one, PayPal included (I only take PayPal, non-personal payments). Shipping depends on location. Just a reminder that these now go for about $1150 or so... with a 6+ month wait.

Thanks for looking!

John Chapman's generally agreed to be one of the best makers of reproduction vintage leather jackets.
