i spent around2 years searching for the perfect leather jacket and im sure some of you may have noticed my previous posts selling Balmain, Margiela, sandro, and even Saint laurent but none of them lasted very long with me. something was always of.
come the burberry from several years back with the distressed looking tumbled lambskin leather which is so soft and juicy. thick and substantial very different from the glossy lambskin and bulky calfskin they offer now. the distressed effect is remarkable.
i also had the prorsum version which i sold for 3500$ several years back the size large fits small and is such a more trim cut that suits wafier and willowy builds. if you go to the gym dont better. the fit of this is more manageable on a daily basis.
this version is identical to the iconic leather jacket with the exception of the blacked out hardware. its gunmetal titanium finish and very durable. not so blingy and does well in an age when evrything blacked out and phantom-ed out are the preference.
i am 6' and weight 155-170 depending on the season. im an athlete and have seasons. the fit pic you see im 170 in the first and 162-165 in the 2nd.
i have the detachable shearling collar which i will include. note the jacket is substantial like most burberrys dont expect a very thin uniqlo or massimo dutti lightweight jacket. this will last you a lifetime!
if i did not live in asia i would keep this!
pit to pit is 21-21.5
shoulder to shoulder is 18-18.5"
and height tip of the back collar to the bottom is 25.5-26"
