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.

    Up for sale is my personal vintage 1940's Horsehide Californian Leather Jacket.

    It's a half belt and probably one of the coolest and most desirable vintage half belts designs and manufacturers out there.

    It's not mint, as you can see, but that's what makes it so perfect. The grain on this jacket is incredible.

    It's labeled a 44 but it's closer to a size 46 than a 44. It's always been a tad big on me (I wear a 44) and that's why I'm finally selling it.

    The lining has seen better days and is quite wearable but you could restore it if you wanted.

    It has unique reversible button cuffs. But it's missing the extra button on both cuffs (see pics)

    Original working Blackened Brass Talon Zipper and cigarette pocket.

    I does have one wear hole (see pic) on the sleeve. I can live with it and you could fix it with a glued patch under the hole. Make no mistake that this is a perfect new jacket, it's vintage, it's been well loved and used. But you don't get this look and feel from a new jacket either...

    This is the exact jacket model that Bruce Willis wore in Surrogates.

    This is the classic Californian Horsehide Jacket.
