TOJ 2010 DR in russet horsehide
Size 48 (based on old stock size circa spring 2011)
Sleeve length and midsection slightly reduced from stock cut, which, itself, differs from the current stock cut--see acual measurements.
Condition 8/10. Some scratches from normal use, mostly on forearms and cuffs. Some blemishes on hide.
I purchased this in April 2011. The hide has a few scars but nothing really conspicuous. The leather is apparently more brittle around these scars and folding of the material at extreme angles causes cracking. One such case of this occurs on the underside edge of the collar, another on the back of the sleeve. I felt that nicks and scratches are a neccessary part of wearing this jacket into an eventual state of well worn glory, so this did not detract from my experience with the jacket.
The finish is an opaque color in a thin coating. The interior of the leather is a light brick red in color. This makes scratches appear as light reddish marks. Contact with body oils apparently deepens the color of the finish a few shades and is apparent on the inside of the collar and lapel rolls. 1 coat of Obenauf's LP has recently been applied.
acutal measurements in inches:
sleeve length 24.5
back length 24.75 (from base of collar)
shoulder width 17 (measured as the distance across the back between the upper most tips of the shoulders, inculding gussets)
midsection width 18.75
hem width 19
upper arm width 7.75 (at underarm)
elbow width 6.75
