1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Calfskin leather but it's buttery soft and supple. It is quite broken in as well, so it does not have that stiff felling when you move your arms. The weight is ideal for spring/fall (+ winter if you live in warm climate).

    The distressing/wrinkling seen at the collar and on the pocket flaps are part of the design. The wrinkling on the rest of the jacket is because I voluntarily toss my jacket in a corner of my drawer to give it that look. It is not permanent at all, and depending on which look you prefer, it can easily go back to its original look (I've included pics showing both looks).

    There are 4 outside pockets: 2 lateral ones and 2 other with flaps (look at the closeup pic).

    Size: I don't remember if the tagged size was 44 or 46 (no tags on the jacket), but it fits exactly between the 2 sizes (which is my ideal size). So basically a size 45 - for a bigger XS or a smaller S.

    Measurements are:
    Pit to pit 18.5 inches
    Shoulder to shoulder 16.5 inches
    Shoulder to cuff sleeve length 25.6 inches
    total length on back, not including collar 24.5 inches

    Price: I paid 825$ shipped in October 2010 to buy it used (no idea how much it retailed for). Considering the fact that it's missing the interior* of the right flap pocket, I'm ready to let it go for 550$ w/ shipping included (which is gonna be at least 30$ since I'm shipping from Montreal).

    * You can have any tailor put in a new pocket to replace the old one and it shouldn't cost much, it's a pretty basic job. Either way, it doesn't affect the look of the jacket, neither from the outside nor from the inside (there's a lining on the inside). So you could very well wear the jacket as is without ever noticing, unless you unbutton the right pocket and put your hand in there. If it's a deal-breaker for any serious buyer, I can go ahead and have my tailor sew in the new pocket bag before having the jacket shipped. The price would then be 25$ more. (the 25$ difference was to save me from having to do that).

    Photos of the TAG, found in the inside chest pocket (it goes to show how few times I've worn this jacket since getting it close to a year ago):

    Turns out the leather is actually LAMB and not CALF like I was told by the previous owner. That explains how soft/supple the leather feels! Here's the eBay link, ending in 27 hours (tomorrow evening). The starting bid is set at 399,99!
