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.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    DROP from 150 to 100 shipped CONUS. I know it's not in season.

    The father of all bombers (the leather daddy, if you will), the G-1 bomber is the classic of classics when it comes to leather jackets, matched only by Schott's other icons, the similar A-2 and the Perfecto black motorcycle jacket. It's dark brown with a brown faux fur collar, lined in pile, sleeves lined with quilted fabric. It closes with snaps at the top and bottom of the covered placket, which closes with a beefy Talon zipper.

    This jacket is size 42 and in great shape for its age. Some stitching has come loose at the righthand pocket--this is repairable although I think it adds character. Relevant area shown in photo.

    I had this jacket professionally cleaned by a leather specialist, and it has not been worn since.

    It's tagged a size 42 and the measurements bear that out; however, it's lined, the leather is TOUGH, and the model is designed to hit near the waist, so in my opinion this is best for someone who usually wears a size 40 and is 6 ft tall or shorter.

    A new G-1 bomber from Schott runs near $1000. Well-made vintage models routinely go for hundreds of dollars. There are poor reproductions out there from the 80s Top Gun-fueled leather jacket boom; this is not one of them.

    Measurements: to come
