    good black ones in 44-48 are about $2000 or more, he is right. With the exchange rate and proxy fees that might be closer to $3000.

    all i did with these jackets was submerge them in warm water for 15 minutes, threw in the the washing machine on spin cycle for 3 minutes just to get rid of excess water

    no harm to the jacket at all

    but heavily treated/distressed leathers might react differently

    That jacket in the yahoo auction should look like mine, but it looks like somebody washed that thing heavily, multiple times, possibly with chemicals. That jacket is the poster child for the anti-washed leather jacket movement that I am beginning now.

    Impolyt is correct. And if you'd like to test your theory, I'll link you to the sz 44 black auction in which I'm 40k yen over the start price and well above 100k yen and still haven't hit the minimum bid requirement. I wish I'd been looking when they were going for $700 in some bizarro world.

    size 52 would be huge on you I think. You could even wear a size 48 (kind of a tight fit) if it's the older pattern, I think, Synth.

    Good luck - 44 black is rare and overpriced but I can't recall seeing 46 black.

    And I saw that washed one on my hunt and laaaaaffed.

    This is good to know - it was a newer one, and the measurements looked like they'd work out - from the ebay listings I've read, it seems like sizing might be a bit...scattered? Is this true? I've seen 48's through 52's that looked like they'd fit.
