    I have some lovely leatherwear to pass on today--including a wonderful USA-Made Avirex A-2 in goatskin!


    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) Avirex A-2 in goatskin.

    This is wonderful--and if it just wasn't too big for me (I was hopeful when I bought it, knowing A-2s can run small...) it wouldn't be here.

    As you know, Avirex is one of the better known makers of A-2s, and this one is wonderful. Cut from supple yet very, very hardwearing goatskin, this beautiful jacket has all the features you'd want from an A-2; knit cuffs, knit lower panel, patch pockets, heavy-duty zip front, SINGLE back panel, and a beautiful cut. It also has underarm grommets for ventilation and a fully functional extra throat latch. It was MADE in the USA, too!

    With the exception of a very small mark in the lining and a couple of very very minor scuffs, this is in excellent condition!

    Asking $115 > 95 > 85 > 75, OR OFFER, shipped in CONUS.

    Tagged a 44, but A-2s tend to be cut tight:


    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 24 1/2
    Shoulder: 20 1/2 (Recall that these measurements are for the neo-raglan sleeve of an A2)
    Length (BOC): 25 1/2

    2) GORGEOUS Golden Bear leather jacket, Made in San Francisco and cut like a Barbour Border/Half-Norfolk!

    This is wonderful! Cut from wonderfully soft yet durable mocha brown leather, this gorgeous jacket has the appearance of a Barbour Border at the front, with two lower bellows pockets and two slash handwarmer pockets. The flaps of the pockets are lined in complementary leather of teh same color as the collar. This jacket also features a bi-swing back and a half belt, similar to a half-Norfolk. The cuffs are fastened with buttons and are adjustable. The jacket is fully lined with a thinsulate tartan lining for warmth. The right-hand pocket flap has a mini-pocket built in--I assume for your iPod! This jacket really is packed with lovely details!

    This was made in San Franciso, USA! Apart from a minor nick to the surface of the collar, this is in absolutely excellent condition.

    A wonderfully luxurious jacket made by one of the most reputable US leather companies, this is a steal at just $125 > 95 > 85 > 75, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in the CONUS!

This features lovely Italian lapels, two zipped chest pockets, button front, and a single hook vent. It has a quilted lining, and was Made in Italy--where else, with this style? ;) It's in excellent condition, and an absolute steal at
