    Before anyone starts recommending TOJ could i get some input on the above lines please?

    What I'd like is a vintage fit, so slim and short like they originally were.

    Also any other recommendations that are under $600?

    I've had great luck with FlightJackets A2 horsehide russet Id just recommend sizing down 1 if you're on the shorter side since they run a tad bit long.

    You could also just check thrift / consignment shops for an actual vintage jacket and probably save some money.
