Just received this in the mail from Rakuten, and it's hands down one of, if not THE nicest, jacket I've ever handled, from a construction/materials perspective. Unfortunately, It's a little tight in the pits/chest for me as a 48, due to the high armholes and very slim cut. Just trying to recoup my money spent, cost a fortune to ship from Japan because it's so damn hefty (and will cost a lot even to ship within CONUS).

Modeled after the Barbour/Belstaff International Biker Jacket Models, it has four huge front pockets (that are seriously spacious) and two interior pockets, a single zip and a placket to button it up, covering the zip. Removable waist cinch, can be hooked in the front or tied in the back or just let hang. Really great band collar and mid to high neck. The interior is lined with a crazy thick and ultra warm 90% wool blend, and the arms are quilted and I believe stuffed with a very thin layer of insulation. This jacket is WARM, and very heavy (2-3 pounds?). Everything is bulletproof and the construction is amazing, made in Japan! The outer is a heavy duty (almost tech canvas like) waxed black cotton.

I believe this model is from their F/W '08 line, though I've never seen another before this and expect not to see one again. Ultra rare, and in what I would say to be 8.5/10 condition, only real wear issue is on the little belt buckles (neck and waist), as some of the black paint has worn away. Otherwise, it seems basically new.

Measurements (Should fit a true 46 and maybe a large 44 best due to high armholes and the thick wool interior)
Shoulders: 17"
Chest: 19.75"
Arm Length (from top of shoulder): 25.25"
Waist (at hem): 20"

Honestly this jacket is so ******* nice, whoever ends up with it is a lucky damn duck and I'm so bitter it doesn't fit :(

TRADE: Looking for items in my sig, and also a dark colored chunky rollneck turtleneck sweater
