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.

    For sale is a TOJ CWU-45 in black lamb. It has silver zippers and hardware and a sateen lining. I received the jacket in November 2012 and it no longer fits me. I wore it pretty regularly in fall, winter, and spring for about two years.

    I am 6'5" and it fit me when I was anywhere from 200-215 lbs. It’s somewhere around a 52 -54 with longer sleeves, judging from Falcon Garments current size chart. It will probably fit someone shorter fine. Since the cuffs are ribbed, the sleeves don't need to be a perfect length and will stack nicely. I don't have a very long torso relative to my height.

    You can see a lot of the wear on the jacket, especially where a seatbelt would cross the left shoulder and near the lap by the ribbing while I was driving. The elastic connecting the shoulder gussets is not as tight as it used to be; you can see in the pics that the shoulder gusset may not naturally fold all the way back in near the top when you wear it.

    The jacket was sent to Bedo's Leatherworks in Falls Church, VA twice for repairs.
    First repair: tear on the right elbow patched with a piece of leather on the inside, hardly visible unless you know it's there. Probably impossible to tear again. Also, a small tear at the top middle of the back, near the collar. The entire back panel was raised a little to repair the tear on the back near the collar, so it is no longer there. I provide actual measurements of the back from the base of the collar to the bottom of the ribbing below.
    Second repair: tear in the bottom left back panel patched with a piece of leather on the inside, hardly visible unless you know it's there.

    I think the sleeves are actually about 0.5” shorter than the specified measurements, so I also measured them.

    Are you using flash to take these pics? It's hard to tell the actual condition of the jacket.

    Yes, I used flash for most of them since they were at night and indoors. I made sure to highlight anything that might be important for determining its condition. You can see every place where some of the black has faded to gray, e.g. near the ribbing, front edges of the collar, elbows. You can see the spots where I had tears repaired. What else do you expect to see?
